How to Print a Song List From a Windows Media Player

Updated February 21, 2017

Windows Media Player is an audio and video program that allows you to create playlists, burn CDs and watch movies. If you are making a mix CD for someone or simply want to organise your music files, export and print your favourite song lists directly from your computer. Microsoft provides a free plug-in called "Media Info Exporter" that allows you to export song lists to a document for printing.

Go to the "Windows XP" link (see "Resources"). Under "Download" on the top right side of the screen, click on "WinterPlayerPack.msi." Click "Save File" to save the file to your desktop or the "Downloads" folder.

Double-click on the "WinterPlayerPack.msi" file and click "Run." Follow the on-screen prompts by the "Windows Media Player 9 Series Winter Fun Pack Setup Wizard" to install the plug-in.

Right-click on "Windows Media Player", followed by "Tools" and "Plug-ins." to open Windows Media Player. Click on "Media Info Exporter."

Click on "Properties," then click on the "Application to Start" drop-down menu. Choose the program you wish to print the song list from.

Press "OK." Under the "Select Collection to Export" drop-down, choose "Playlists." Hit "Export" to send the playlist to the selected program. Go to "File" followed by "Print" to print the playlist.
