Place the player in the toolbar area

Post by frogsag » Tue Aug 21, 2007 9:00 am

I've just started using MM and find it a great improvement over iTunes. However, i don't feel i need the Player and Now Playing windows open. So is there any way for the player controls (Play/Pause, Previous Track, Next Track, Time and Song Name) to be placed in the toolbar area, as in iTunes?

I can't find it in the toolbar options, but when I went to Tools>Options>Player and chose the Winamp player, the thing that I was looking for appeared in the toolbar! But it didn't work, and I don't want to open Winamp everytime I'm going to play a song. Can anybody help me?

MM3 has a mini player - menu top right next to minimize button.

Tools -> Options -> General -> Minimization Settings -> Minimize to MicroPlayer

So that whenever you minimize MM3, it will jump down to the MicroPlayer.
Additionally, just below the Minimization setting is a checkbox for 'Close to tray', if you check that in addition to 'Minimize to MicroPlayer' then whenever you close MM3 it will also go to the MicroPlayer.

Just to chip in......
You may need to right click on the Windows Toolbar and then select 'Toolbars' from the pop-up menu, then make sure you tick the 'MediaMonkey Player' option so that it will be allowed by Windows to be displayed in the toolbar.
