How do I permanently embed Windows Media Player in my taskbar?


Guess that sums it up.  I'd like to have it ALWAYS in the taskbar, not only when I open it and minimize it.  I'm on XP, I have wmp v. 9 at work, and wmp v.10 at home.  If this can be done, is it doable on both versions?

Thanks alot,

Right click your task bare and select toolbars quick launch and make sure windows media player is checked.

Thanks for the reply Joe, but unfortunatly that only enables an already opened wmp to be minimized to the taskbar.  I was thinking of something that will always be there when I start up the computer, without me having to open it, and then minimize it.  Thanks though...
yall are talking about two different things,,,, joe is talking about the quick lauch, and imwmt is talking about having the program already running whenever you log on/start your computer.  imwmt, if you want the program to run everytime you log in, all you have to do is drop it (or a shortcut to it) in the start>programs>startup folder.  the contents of this folder are run whenver you log in.

I had figured it out before I got your post.  Put a shortcut in the startup folder, and selected it to start minimized so it's always in the taskbar.  Thanks...
