    Yeah, it seems to do nothing. You can only use it if you go to the music file you want to play and 'Open with' Music.

    When I added music to WMP it all automatically showed up in the Metro player. I'm not sure why it isn't for you guys, though.

    *edit* Ah... actually, I deleted the default library folders in WMP before adding the one with my music in it... maybe try that?
