TaskBar menu?

Hello

As an avid fan of Winamp, I can't live without it. But I also like to keep my desktop as free of clutter as possible. The Winshade on the MMC3 skin (than makes it a thin bar) was great. I was wondering if there was a similar plugin that would minimise Winamp or control it at least from the taskbar: ie, a combobox or something that allows yuou to select the track that permanently resides out of the way. Like the Google Deskbar.

Is there anything like this or do I head to the wishlist forum?

Go to Prefrences (ctrl+p) and then @ the very bottom left Click on "General Purpose" @ the bottom of the list on the right that shows (or near it) should be a plugin called "Nullsoft Tray Control"

Click once on it, then click on "configure selected plugin" Click on whatever buttons you want veiwed, then clcik OK.

Next minimize winamp and use the buttons that are now in the taskbar

OR

use a classic skin and use it's winshade mode.

Hmm, the winshade mode of the modern skin isn't too dissimilar to that of mmd3.

The Tray Control plugin (included with Winamp) places the controls in the systray, but there are also plenty of plugins available which place the controls in the taskbar.
