    Well, I've never known about it until now. I tried to pause Foobar while going through my movie project folder having explorer as my active window and a raw avi file was selected, hit Play/Pause (keyboard media button, not the Foobar pause) and windows media player pops up automatically playing the movie. I thought that was neat, I don't know if that is even new to Windows 7 but I just thought I'd share the info!

    Just tried something, selecting multiple items and hitting Play/Pause adds them to a playlist! [​IMG]

    playlist function goes same for selecting a folder with music in it!

    Sorry if this old... I just like it!

    Aww, I guess it just opens up the default player...

    Mine didn't seem to open a folder full of FLAC. Anyone have better results?
