Windows Media Player 11

Microsoft support gives me the following instruction:

Start Windows Media Player, click Tools and then License Management. Unfortunately, I can't locate either. Where are they?

Bad news...

Microsoft hid the 'classic menu' (the one that has File, Edit, View, Tools, etc) by default starting with WMP10, which is likely why you can't find it. If you would like to restore that menu just open WMP and press ctrl + M. Alternatively, right-click the title bar and the menu bar will appear as a drop-down menu.

However, that information does not help you in your case because the License Management feature has been removed from WMP11 and presumably will not be returned. Depending on what music service you use, though, there may be another way of backing up your licenses.
