    Enable Windows Media Player 9 Mini-Player mode

    For those who didn't already know about WMP 9 Mini-Player Mode,i thought i'd post this little tip i just spotted over at ntfs.org

    WMP 9 includes a Mini-Player mode that runs on the Windows taskbar. To enable WMP in Mini-Player mode, perform the following steps:

    Right-click an unused space on the taskbar.
    Select Windows Media Player from the toolbar context menu.

    Windows will add a new blank space on the taskbar for the set of controls that will appear when you minimize WMP. When WMP is in Mini-Player mode, you can restore the regular WMP interface by clicking the bottom-right icon on the docked WMP control set.

    How could I miss not trying the mini mode out,a reminder box keeps popping up every time I start the player.I do like it though,less luggage than it's big brother.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Talking Great feature

    This is an excellent feature.

    Probably used to get your attention from the other problems

    Overall though, WMP 9 series peforms well, and has taken over winamp3 for video and audio - at least for me.

    Another good feature is the media library creating album folders.
