Windows 7: Windows Media Player Taskbar

Windows Media Player Taskbar

Hi. I'm really sad that Windows Media Player 12 in Windows 7 don't have the "classic" preview in taskbar. When I minimize WMP and I want to change to another song, I can't view the name of the song because the taskbar preview is too small to read the letters. I don't wanted to downgrade do WMP11, and I've downloaded the usual minibar of WMP11 to WMP12 but it sucks, because is not of the same height of the Windows 7 taskbar. So, I downloaded this gadget (Download Media Player Vista Gadget 1.2 - This gadget allows you to search the WMP libarary straight from your desktop - Softpedia) and it's really awesome. I can see what I want, and I can view the library in that little left arrow. It's really great. But, it's a gadget. And everytime I want to listen some music I need to open the Gadgets Menu, and select this gadget. It's really boring. And, besides, I can't minimize it (because it's a gadget). So, I'm wondering if it's something similiar to this gadget but to put in the taskbar, or if it's possible to put the gadget in that WMP preview...

Waiting for an anwser, and sorry for my english.
