Chapter 7: Music on the Desktop
In This Chapter
Getting started with Windows Media Player
Making the most out of your music
Ripping and burning
Creating and using playlists
Using alternatives to WMP
Finding more music
Music on the Windows desktop rates as hard to find, a little bit boring, and certainly less enticing than the Metro tiled version over on the Start screen. But if you’re listening to music because you like to listen to music (as opposed to buying more music from Microsoft’s Windows Store), the experience isn’t bad at all.
Windows 8.1 comes with Windows Media Player (WMP), which is a decent application, and the subject of most of this chapter. Better players are out there, and I talk about a couple of them in this chapter, too.
