To determine the version of Windows Media Player, start Windows Media Player, click About on the Help menu in and then note the version number below the Copyright notice.

If the Help menu is not displayed, press Alt+H, on your keyboard and then click About.

I found this info too, but it doesn't seem to work on Windows 8. I can't find the Help menu, even not by pressing Alt+H. – amiregelz Nov 16 '12 at 19:13
Tap and release Alt. From the menu that appears, click Help, then "About Windows Media Player". On Windows Enterprise RTM I'm seeing version 12.0.9200.16420. Also, Alt-H works fine for me - start Windows Media Player, then with it in the foreground, hold down the left Alt key while tapping H once. – Mark Allen Nov 16 '12 at 19:16
Right click on the media player icon on your desktop and select properties. This should tell you what version you have. – Josiah Nov 16 '12 at 19:17
@MarkAllen That worked. Only Alt though, not Alt+H. – amiregelz Nov 16 '12 at 19:18
@Ace-Legend Thank you, it works. I have 12.0.9200.16420 ) – alisia123 Nov 16 '12 at 19:19

You can also go to the Windows Media Player folder located in Program Files, right click the file wmplayer.exe, go to Details tab and check Product version.
