Windows 7: How to start wmp 12 in library mode?

How to start wmp 12 in library mode?

When i start wmp 12 it first view the library mode with all my songs etc, but than some milliseconds later it gets minimized to the now playing mode. Is there a way to force wmp 12 to start up directly in library mode?

I can't believe why it starts to the now playing mode. In there you really can't do anything or have i missed something? Am I the only one having this problem?

Happy new year everyone anyhow!

Can't believe that I find the answer just minutes after I wrote the above. I search for it for maybe an hour before that!

Well, if someone encounter the same problem, just recreate the wmp shortcut or take a look at this command line start up properties.
