Windows 7: Playing Music in the Explorer

Playing Music in the Explorer

I saw on a video on youtube someone playing music but it was like media player was embedded within the window when looking at the My Music folder.

Is there a way of setting this up to work?

Of course.

Open an explorer window, click organize, go to layout, enable preview pane. then point to a media file and there you go.
