I use VLC PLAYER since WMP has grown so oddly and my guess is Microsoft was chasing Apple's iTunes or maybe some other goal.
In VLC PLAYER I can see the audio length and where I'm at. So it may be what you really want.
I'm not a big fan of the new WMP look of the small album cover because I don't see the info I want, just as length of audio and where I am in the audio. Any idea how I can replace to the old look or modify to regain these features?
Thanks for your help.
