Easiest way to play all music? wmp12

Not so urgent, but it's been bugging me for months and finally figured I should remember to ask somebody.

I am one of those people that sometimes likes to just put my entire music library on shuffle, wanting to be surprised from the start, or just not caring. This isn't too straightforward to be able to do in WMP12. I have found that if I right click WMP on the taskbar, the jumplist appears and I can select "Play All Music."

Um, isn't there anyway in the actual program that lets you do this???? Seems very hidden for it being a popular option.

heres what i just did, i clicked create playlist dropdown arrow, selected create auto playlist, added a criteria that was date added then i selected in the last year ,as the laptop is about that old then that is all the music, your criteria could be slightly different but along those lines.
then to play all music i select the auto playlist from the tree on the left of wmp. obviously you can name your playlist,
click a track to play and set to shuffle and bobs yer uncle.
