Hi John, thanks for your response to my problem. You've got it right, however
I launched Windows Media Player and what it did was bring up my whole music
library and nowhere on the usual top area or anywhere else did I find the
usual; File/Edit/View/Tools etc. I was talking to a friend of mine today,
and he came up with the same solution, and with both of you with the same
solution it is very hard to believe that the Tools is not showing up.
Foregoing that I then right clicked on Media Player click'd on
Properties/General/tick'd Hidden/Apply/OK. I then tried to see if any of the
hard drive e-mail attachments would come up and play properly, along with
trying some new e-mails that were in Mail, and darned it if it didn't work
But now I'm wondering how to do it the way you both have suggested, being I
was unable to see Tools. Like I mentioned I'm running Vista, would there be
any differance with XP etc?
Any assist on this
