I don't think you can. The point of QuickTime Player's design is that if you want to open more than one movie or song at a time, you can. If you really want to have only one window open at a time, you'll have to close the other window first. Or you can look at an alternative like VLC Player, which I believe uses a playlist style more similar to Windows Media Player.
