    Hi I use a shortcut on my keyboard to launch WMP.

    Is it possible to have WMP play all music as soon as it is launched without me having to click "play all music"?

    Ok, I think I've found a way;
    First, you must open WMP and create a playlist here's how.
    Add all of your music to the playlist.

    Then, open notepad and type the following;
    "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" /Playlist <PlaylistName>

    The " " are required

    Replace the "<playlistName>" with the name of the playlist in WMP.

    Then, save the notepad file as "Windows Media Player.bat" You can use any name as long as you have the .bat at the end.

    Then use the .bat file to launch WMP and it should autoplay
