There is NO “Hidden or Undocumented” Advanced Tag Editor for Windows 7’s Media Player 12

 
I received an email asking if I knew about the "Hidden" Advanced Tag Editor for Windows Media Player 12? written about at Wikipedia.
 
Knowing the history of the removal of Advanced Tag Editor from Windows 7’s Windows Media Player 12 – this didn’t sound correct . . but how could Wikipedia be wrong? (^_^)
 
 
Unfortunately, Microsoft Knowledge Base Article KB978529 does NOT reveal a "Hidden" Advanced Tag Editor – it simply resolves a problem when transcoding some music files!
Wikipedia’s reference is a Microsoft TechNet Forum’s really long thread that at one point appears to endorce this solution – but many lines later, debunks the idea there’s a "Hidden" Advanced Tag Editor.
 
BOTTOM LINE:
 
    • There is NO "Hidden" Advanced Tag Editor for Windows 7’s Window Media 12
    • Don’t believe everything you read on Wikipedia! (^_^)

    Blake! How dare you debunk Wikipedia. :( Everybody knows "The Community" is the greatest source of truth in the world, and even possibly … the universe! It’s people like you (truthseekers) who give people like me (myth-ics) a bad name. :)
