Using Windows Media Player
Editor’s Picks and More Stations break up the web page. The Editor’s Picks section offers you some of the best-rated stations. If you want to search for your own station, simply scroll through the list under More Stations. Usually, you will have several pages of stations to scroll through when you take this route.
If you are unsure of the type of music that the station offers, you can click the Visit button, and go to the station’s website. These websites will give you a list of music that they play, music that they are currently playing, station location and the like.
If you want to listen to a radio station, click on the Listen button. This will open your Windows Media Player, which has five buttons. The square button to the left of the screen is the Stop button. You also have Forward and Rewind buttons that skip to the next song (Forward) or go to the previous selection (Rewind).
These two buttons are not applicable to the Internet radio stations. When you are listening to a streaming channel, you cannot move forward or backward through selections. If you press the Rewind button, Windows Media Player will restart the station. If you hit the Forward button, you will get the following selections:
- Play again.
- Go to Library.
- Play previous list.
The most important buttons for listening to a streaming Internet radio station is the Play/Pause button and the Volume/Mute button. You can pause the station at any time and then restart it whenever you want to.
