When you have media player in full window and click the minimise button , the media player will then sit on the bottom taskbar.When I used to hover over it , a small black window appeared over the top of the controls showing information relating to the track that was currently playing and it does not do this any more.Also the minimised player has 9 buttons in all , you could play , stop , next track , previous track as 4 of the 9 buttons but these 4 are now greyed oud and nothing happens when I click them !

Running XP? Which version of WMP?

Go into Program Files\Windows Media Player\, run setup_wm.exe - ignore any `newer version already installed` - it ought to reset the configuration.

You might of disabled this feature..... To enable:

Right-click the "Taskbar" and select "Toolbars->Windows Media Player". You will notice a little "tick" next to this option if you right-click again.

You may need to close WMP while doing this.

Tried your suggestions but they didn't work.I tried then to update via the taskbar in Media Player but it said I had the latest version.I then went onto Microsoft web site and downloaded the same version on top of my current one at this has now solved the problem , thanks all that helped !
