The Classic Menus in Windows Media Player (previously known as the menu bar) provide you access to most of the Player functions. They are hidden by default.
Although many of the functions in the Classic Menus also appear in the drop-down menus below the Now Playing, Library, Rip, Burn, and Sync tabs, you might want to show the Classic Menus to access the less frequently used commands that only appear on the File, View, Play, Tools, and Help menus.
Do one of the following:
Right-click an empty area of the taskbar (such as the area to the left of the Now Playing tab) or an empty area to the left or right of the playback controls, and then click Show Classic Menus.
Click the View menu, and then click Classic Menus.
