Windows 7: WMP player difficult to use.

WMP player difficult to use.

All I want to do is have my library play like an itunes player. In other words, I want the option of having it play my collection in alphabetical order from the start point of any given album I've selected. WMP offers the options of either playing a given album over and over or else playing my entire collection randomly. Do I have to add my entire songlist to a playlist? Shouldn't it be programmed to have the entire library as a playlist by default? Am I asking too much? Games suck.

Nothing? Are you telling me it can't be done? Gosh, I can't believe that Macintosh is the most valuable company ever and Microsoft is turning into a bad memory! Golly! How did it happen?

Boohbah, you are my new hero. That seems like such an abstract process that most people would have no idea how to do that. Thank you, sir.

As for Microsoft: Counter-intuitivity, thy name is Windows.
