my "library" in windows media player seems to have every track ive ever listened to/downloaded/played etc [although no longer in "my music"....but still in "library"]is there any way i can clean the library up so that all these deleted tracks are no longer listed,without doing it track by track?...in one fell swoop??and in the future,how do i keep the library current..so that its always just whats in my music files?im about to get an mp3 player and wanted to keep the library up to date.ive never looked at w m player library up until now.thanks!

To stop files being added automatically open WMP and go to Tools>Options and on the Player tab deselect the "Add music files to the library when played".

Make sure that the box "Delete files from computer when deleted from library" is NOT ticked. You can delete several links at once. To select adjacent items, press and hold the SHIFT key while selecting. To select nonadjacent items, press and hold the CTRL key while selecting. Right-click the selected links, and then click Delete.
