Taskbar Mousover Controls Gone

When I mouse over the winamp icon in my task bar, there used to be back, pause and forward buttons underneath the little preview window so that you can pause and switch songs quickly. I really liked this feature and used it a lot - but it seems to be gone now. I don't know if this is a bug or a deliberate removal or if the feature never actually existed and I've been hallucinating all along, but I want it back. How do I get it back?

assuming win7 you either need to re-enable Aero or simply quit/restart winamp.

it is possible however you have a 3rd party non-Unicode plugin gumming up your works.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

Hi Rikeus,

I also suggest you give the Win7 Taskbar plug-in a try (link below), if you are using Windows 7. It lets you control what is shown in the preview window, add more playback controls, and more.


There is also a discussion thread for this plug-in.

Thanks for the help. Restarting didn't work, but as soon as I installed that plugin it was back to normal
