The following illustration shows what Windows media Player looks like on my machine. I tweaked the image to add reference arrows so that each section can be described in greater detail within the following sections.
The Now Playing sections provides tools for playing back your favorite music and video files. You can also create new playlists, or add to exisiting playlists through this interface.
The library view provides an interface for managing and playing back your favorite music and video files. Organize, categorize, and rate all your favorite songs and movies. Easily create playlists containing your favorite music.
The Rip interface allows you to rip an audio CD into WMA format or MP3 format (pending you have the right software codec installed). Ripping is restricted to the WMA format only and you will need to purchase a separate MP3 encoder to record directly into Mp3 format.
The Burn interface allows you to burn audio cds containing your favorite music files.
The Sync tab provides options for syncing music and video files to portable devices such as MP3 Players, Portable Video Players, and iPods.
This is the main interface in Windows Media Player in which you control how your music is played back. You can create new playlists that contain your favorite tracks, and you can pause, rewind, skip between tracks, and adjust the volume levels on your PC.
To Add Files To The Now Playing List you will need to drag and drop files from within Windows Explorer or another file manager.
