For those of you running Windows, it can be very annoying to have to stop what you are doing to go and deal with your music. Although not all of us are graced by keyboards with media player buttons, you can still master control over your music. If you are using iTunes as your media player of choice, this small tweak can make a huge difference in over all music control. This tweak will put a small iTunes taskbar player in place that you can use. First, open up iTunes and click on the "Edit" menu, then click on "Preferences". Next, navigate to the "Advanced" tab and uncheck the box labeled "Minimize iTunes windows to system tray". Next, go down to the taskbar and right click on it, go to "Toolbars", and then click iTunes. Congrats, your done! Now when ever you minimize your iTunes application, the media player controller will show up in your taskbar. Although limited, it does provided enough options for most users. This is a great alternative to using RainMeter since it does not take up as much RAM, and it is still using one program instead of two. This is a nifty little tweak, and I hope it serves you well.
