    So who knew that windows has a built in media player other than WMP? I clicked on "Media Player 2" in Windows in a Box and up popped a small media player! It's not listed in "Accessories", what's the deal?

    Haha i know what you're talking about CTPhil. My school's administrator will take away student's Windows media player if a teacher asks them to, but I highly doubt he blocks that one as well. Ive found many neat things about windows out of necessity because of how much the PC's are locked down at my school. We dont have taskbar notification icons, and we cant right click our taskbar >_>'

    It would be nice but: it appears like its meant to work only if your operating system drive is C:.
    Myne is not and this cute little utility does not seem to be able to find its way out of the c drive letter. Maybe im doing something wrong?

    Just send an email to the developer "loreto.re" at "gmail.com" and tell him your concern. Perhaps it would be an easy correction. For example using the variable SystemRoot, instead of a default C:\ as the assumed drive. (If that is the issue.)
