Minimize Media Player To System Tray, And Other Power Toys

Microsoft has some good Power Toys for Windows Media Player, the most essential of which (for many people) would be the Tray Control Power Toy, which allows you to minimize the player to the system tray and control common tasks from there. Convenient as all heck.

The other Power Toys:

  • Media Library Management Wizard
  • Playlist Import to Excel Wizard
  • PowerToys Skin
  • Windows Media Player Skin Importer

The last one lets you change Winamp skins into WMP skins. I’m going to try it out, see how well it works.

I think it bears mentioning that these are not necessarilly new, just useful. They may be sitting on your system without you having ever used them (they are on mine). Check under Start>Programs>Windows Media Bonus Pack for Windows XP.
