Windows 7: Play only preview of song?

Play only preview of song?

I've searched but can't find anything so thought will ask here.

Is it possible to make Windows Media Player play only 30 second or 1 minute preview of song and then switch to next one? Didn't find at settings anything related, is there some plugin available?

There's no setting for this that i know of. All you do in WMP is put your mouse pointer over the song and it will play any part or all the song as long as the pointer is on it, just move the pointer to the next and it will play and so on.
