    Guys,

    I really like Winamp's features and functionality even better than Windows Media Player. My question is that when I minimize Winamp, it doesn't show in the Taskbar the way all other programs do. Is this design by default? I had to go into the Start Menu to launch Winamp and put a shortcut on my desktop to close out of the Media Content that is playing. Can I change the behavior of Winamp 5 so that it shows minimized on the task bar? My computer is all up-to-date and there is no evidence of any viruses or malware. I update and run malware removal software very religiously.

    Personally, I like it to minimize to the system tray, the taskbar gets too cluttered anyway. ;)
