Do you check out every book in the library when you go? How do you choose which one to read? Do your musical tastes change over time -- have some hot bands this week and others later? How much music do you have? How's at arranged? Just how many music folder are there in your toolbar?
How about you don't just count libraries out yet -- you're missing another of their important aspects: Jump Lists. Just as a right click on the Explorer taskbar icon bring up a list of pinned and recent folders, a right click on the WMP icon brings up a list of pinned and recent folders, static playlists, years, ratings, contributing artists, composers, parental ratings, and most importantly autoplaylists
. Works for Videos, Pictures and Recorded TV too. You just need to click a single option in WMP to activate this:
Now play those folders, playlists, etc. from Explorer or right from within WMP and right click the WMP icon on the taskbar:
Now what is it about that approach, albeit different, that fails to suit your requirements?
