    Hey guys...

    Just foolin around with shortcut toolbars for my task bar, when I noticed a taskbar "Audio Player" ... I enabled it and suddenly I had a taskbar mp3 player by my system tray. What the hell? It's called "Zaxxon" and I have no idea where it came from - maybe I downloaded it? Any ideas? :) Guess I could do a search on Google for it - anyway I don't remember downloading anythig like that, so is it just a standard WinXP feature? I searched the forum but couldn't find any posts about it. I am playing with it now, and it would be AWESOME if only it would play more than half of my 700 song collection. Stupid Zaxxon Audio Player. lol

    Anyway, here is a screenshot...


    edit: ok here's a better screenshot, complete with hot Japanese race car poster girls... :) enjoy

    so it's the powertoys media player? Lame that it doesn't actually play my damn MP3s, WMP seems to play them just fine... :( oh well. Thanks man.

    As far as my wallpaper, here ya go: hot mac babe :)


    edit: oh yeah, credit for that wallpaper goes to genesis and one other guy at deviantart.com, I simply extracted the girl and redid the aqua-texture background, so it would match my theme... :)

    how do u guys do to get those big icons in the desktop?are they tiles?i can only get icons like that in the windows explorer.

    yeah the shell player only plays *.wma's or cd audio tracks, not mp3 - it doesn't have the mp3 support
