How many times have you wished to start Media Center without that annoying animation or with your favorite song?After so many articles here at Web Talk, I am pretty sure that Windows 7 has no secret for you. But, believe it or not, this new operating system has got a couple of last shots which, I am pretty sure, will impress you! 

What follows is a quick list of hidden  commands which let you customize Windows 7 Media Center in some unexpected, amazing ways. As a first step, right-click the Windows Media Center shortcut. Click the shortcut tab and in the Target blank field, add the below command after %windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe [ex: %windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe(space)/widescreen]. You can also add multiple commands like in this new example [%windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe(space)/widescreen(space)/nostartupanimation]

  • /widescreen = This command will force the system to display WMC in  widescreen mode.
  • /mcesuperbar://tv?live=true = Start WMC in LiveTV at startup.
  • /nostartupanimation =  Useful if you do not like the annoying startup animation.
  • /mediamode = Start WMC  in “media only mode” without   minimize or close buttons.
  • /playallmusic = Do not losse any time! Play all  music at  startup!
  • /playfavmusic = Only  play favorite music at startup.
  • /playslideshow – Play all slideshows.
  • /playfavslideshow – Only play favorite slideshow at startup.
  • /configuress – Start WMC by configuring the  screen saver menu.
  • /screensaver =  Start WMC  with a nice screensaver!
