This is the first very rough draft of a neat little idea I had.
Look in the upper right hand corner of the graphic.
into your scripts folder. Then open up the script manager and add "QuarkAmp". Now you should have the player buttons in a very little window. If you use "Always on top" like I do, you can keep this on no matter what skin you're using and turn off the main window when you don't need it.
I'm going to add a button or two (or more) still. One for opening closing the main window, maybe one to drop down a text bar with the cuirrently playing song; what else should be in there? I can change the graphics, but I kinda feel that the defaults are the best choice for this: anyone who wants to can send me some nice (tiny) unobtrusive buttons and I'll use them instead.
This isn't a winshade replacement...more of a really simple "remote control" kinda utility.
And technically, there isn't even a script, yet. But, no worries, I've got some plans that will require a script, I just want some reactions.
