Display Menu bar in Windows7 Media Player

This is a small tip related to Windows Media Player in Windows 7. Many of us are used to having a menu bar while using the Windows Media Player. But in Windows 7, the menu bar is not displayed  by default. So how to show it:

Just right click on the empty area next to tabs as shown and you will be provided with menu options as context menu


And there you can also see option to show these options as Menu Bar, Press Ctrl+M or click to show and click again not to  show.


EDIT: Thanks to Marcus, for pointing out that pressing the  ‘Organize’ button also brings up the Menu bar option.

    Great tip, Vasudev. I found out you can also click on the Organize button and then turn on the Menu bar there as well. Thanks for sharing this!

    @Brandon LeBlanc, Yes I agree, It gives a cleaner look without Menu bar. As one of my reader asked about it , I had posted this small tip. And there are many people also, who like the Menu bar.
