Preview/Play audio files like Win2000 from explorer window...unable to find in WinXP?



Hi Everyone...first time.....

I am unable to fine this feature in WinXP....

In Win2K, you are able to preview/play music files by just highlighting them individually in the explorer window and clicking the play button on the left side...the place where information about a file is shown. This is a great feature if you do not want to open up an audio player like WinAmp or MediaPlayer and just want to browse your MP3 files.

In WinXP, the only option in explorer window on the left is to play all files in directory....and it will open an audio program to play it.

Any Ideas?

I reckon it is possible to do it in XP, you will just have to find XP's version of the "Folder.htt"
Then look for "False; //cool, but may hinder media file manipulation"
and change "False" to "True"


Thanks for your would be nice....I don't know why they would take out that feature...for both Audio and Video.....

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
