Not much love is shown to Windows Media Player (WMP), and I understand it very well. When you got built in apps like Groove and in an era of streaming music, WMP does not stand a chance & I don’t use it anymore.
But I just wanted to pay homage to WMP, it was my go to player in XP, Vista and Windows 7 days until smartphones came in switch my habits of listening on PCs to smartphones.
I used to manage my music collection in folders hence my favorite view was always Library > Music > Folder…
It did the basics right, like picking up album arts and stuff.
Not a lot of people like WMP even in Vista/7 days, and I somehow want to understand why.
