Thank you, Sue.

My edition of Windows Media Player is 2006, and does not appear to have the
'View' option, but it appears from searching 'Help', which appears under
'Now Playing' that 'Enhancements' etc also lies under the down arrow under
the 'Now Playing ' button. I too am on XP, but am not sure that is relevent.
