I have seen my friends minimizing windows media player to run in the taskbar. Before that, I didn’t know how it was done. I looked through the options menu franticly for a way to do it. I gave up after a while thinking that it must have been a feature on a newer version of the software.
Then I realize how simple it was. To run windows media player in your taskbar, you will need to follow the steps below. This is how it looks like at first, when you minimize it before doing any changes.
Right click on the taskbar, select Toolbars and then Windows Media Player.
That is it. Minimize your windows media player now and you will see the player running in your taskbar as shown in the image below.
