I posted this in the computer tricks thread, but honestly thought alot of you would want to take advantage of this in case you don't see the other thread. I have wanted a mini player for iTunes forever and just randomly found out a way to get one. Right click on your taskbar, click 'toolbars', then check iTunes.
You don't even need to have iTunes running and it will automatically play whatever playlist you recently had open. I'll throw a pic on for you guys. enjoy
