I'm using WMP for for managing my music library. Lately I noticed something. I was reorganizing my library and came across a strange -I mean annoying- behavior of WMP. The way WMP sorts Artists.
Normally it sorts them next to each other like a line, and when there's no space it moves to next line, a unit below, then continues to sorting. You know what I'm talking about. This goes on until you reach the 25th artist. If there's a 25th artist sorting changes. It won't sort artists next to each other but group them with letters and sort to below. I don't want that.
I did some googling and found out that I'm not the only one who's annoyed with this. And as a solution, people suggested using WMP Plus!. So I downloaded and tested. It solves the problem. Kinda. It removes the -letter- headers. So it goes back to default sorting. But then things get messy. There's no line separator between albums. So I have to resize album covers column to put some space between them. Troublesome.
Is there a better way to fix this? Or does anyone know if this behavior is intentionally put? If so, it sucks.
While writing this, I noticed not just artist sorting but also other sorting methods does the same thing. Album, genre... After the 25th item it starts annoying.
EDIT: using WMP 12.
