A few misc. Windows Media Player 11 tips

Here are some neat tricks for you to try with Windows Media Player 11 - please note that I've only tested these on the Release Candidate 2 (RC2) release of Windows Vista.

  • To slow down playback, press CTRL+SHIFT+S
  • To speed up playback, press CTRL+SHIFT+G
  • To return to normal playback speed, press CTRL+SHIFT+N
  • To view a menu with all of the above on it, right click on the Play/Pause button in the bottom center of the Windows Media Player window.




  • I checked, and it is also availible on the 5600 build.
