Controlling the new Zune player from the Windows 7 Taskbar Preview

  • Comments 2

The latest Zune player has been reviewed in great depth elsewhere so I’m not going to go into it in huge depth here, other than to say it’s not just a pleasure to use but is very, very cool and aesthetically pleasing too.

But I did want to point out a tiny feature that I really like when you’re running it on Windows 7: The preview icon in the toolbar has controls that you can use right from the preview itself, such as play/pause, skipping tracks and marking as a favorite. This kind of little touch makes using it a pleasure, and is the kind of things that demonstrates the level of thought that’s gone into the product.

 

Oh yeah, and no adverse comments about my musical tastes please.
