How do I make WMP automatically play the next file?

Is there a plugin or something that makes WMP automatically play the next file? Aka, if I have a two files in a folder, a.mp3 and b.mp3, and I am playing a.mp3, a plugin that would make WMP automatically movie to b.mp3 when a.mp3 ends.

Without having to right click -> Play with Windows Media Player on the folder every time, or create playlists.

My parents are whining about this missing feature. I have told them about the right click on folder -> play with Windows Media Player feature, but they would find it more convinient to select songs from windows explorer, not from WMP, and have WMP move to the next song when the current song ends.

PS: Clicking "Play all" also doesn't work. If i decide to select a song from Windows explorer (by double clicking on it), and not from WMP, the ability to automatically play next file vanishes.
