How do I open up Windows Media Player in Now Playing mode?

Anonymous November 6, 2013

It seems every earlier version always had a switch that enabled the default to open in Now Playing.
No no matter what I do it opens to library. I have Windows 7 and Windows Media Player 12.0.xx

How do I open it in Now Playing?

      Thank you Francis B. This is exactly what I needed. Actually I had tried the Task switch but left a space between now and playing! lol
      Syntax Syntax syntax!
      Now if we could just get Microsoft to stop breaking the FEW things in windows that actually work...
      Thabks again!
