So what's the point of showing the now playing view if you clicked the WMP icon, which means that nothing is playing? You can't get anything to start playing from that view either, so I really don't see what the idea would be there.
Us normal people
open Media Player to play media.
"I think it starts faster for him (no idea how to measure that if it won't start in that view), so he just wants to go there and use Ctrl+O. I think"
Just out of curiosity, did you let WMP load all your media the first time you opened it?
