    How do I clear the history log from WMP? I recently noticed that the clips WMP is listing are clips from 4 or days ago, and as I watch new clips they never are added to the list. I am running Windows XP Pro and I think I have WMP Version 8.

    Thanx

    In Media player click on Tools, Options, and then click on the Privacy tab. At the bottom you will find the Clear History button.

    I tried that but when I go to Tools - Options I get the following tabs to choose from:

    Player
    Copy Music
    Devices
    Performance
    Media Library
    Visualizations
    File Types
    DVD
    Network

    There is no Privacy tab and no Clear History button.

    Doc,

    Thanx for the help, I really appreciate it. Are programs from that site OK? Would I be better off upgrading to WMP 9? Or would I be creating more potential problems by upgrading (digital rights management etc.)?
