User Interface Tweaks - Enable the Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 Mini-Player mode

Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 includes a Mini-Player mode that runs on the Windows taskbar.

To enable Microsoft Windows Media Player in Mini-Player mode, follow the next steps:

  1. Right-click an unused space on the taskbar.
  2. Select Windows Media Player from the toolbar context menu.
  3. Windows will add a new blank space on the taskbar for the set of controls that will appear when you minimize Windows Media Player in Mini-Player. When Windows Media Player in Mini-Player is in Mini-Player mode, you can restore the regular Windows Media Player in Mini-Player interface by clicking the bottom-right icon on the docked Windows Media Player in Mini-Player control set.
