Windows Media Player 9 Minimizing to Tray

bisleyboy asked
Last Modified: 2008-03-06
I have recently re-installed my copy of Windows XP on my machine and like with the old install i upgraded WMP to version 9.

On the old install if i were to minimize media player then it would put itself just to the left of the icons on the taskbar and give me the basic controls (play, pause, volume control etc...). Since the reinstall it has simply minimized to the tray as if it were a normal app. Microsoft are awful at tech support so I decided to come here for help. I have even checked on systems at work and they all seem to have no problem with it.
