|If you enable Windows Movie Player as a Toolbar on the Taskbar, it will only show up once you actually open/play sumpin'...not until then, because otherwise, well -- why should it? |
MVP as an added Toolbar does offer extra "control-from-the-icon" features as options. I suppose it might be desirable to some users.
I THINK (and I am really guessing here) what you may want, for whatever reason, is for WMP to show up in the SystemTray/Clock area as opposed to the Taskbar area, am I right? So then maybe you want to run WMP "as a Service" (questionable choice, IMHO), so that may be a direction you want to "investigate" (i.e.: adding WMP as a service, if that is even possible)...
I'm not even gonna try it here on my system, thank you -- just can't see an advantage. But, if successful, maybe let us in on what that is supposed to offer, 'cause we may be missing out on some remarkable feature.
Personally, I try to avoid WMP, so convince me... I promise to evaluate your assessment/objective without prejudice (albeit with some skepticism), I really will. Enlighten us. I find this intriguing.
