Windows 7: New skin for WMP's Now Playing mode disappears after flipping to Lib.

New skin for WMP's Now Playing mode disappears after flipping to Lib.

When I go to 'Library' then back to 'Now Playing' my snazzy new skin is gone, replaced with the original.

I wanted a smaller skin for WMP 'Now Playing' mode.
I got a few I found acceptable. (Zen Garden & also Stealth, from here: Skins for Windows Media Player - Microsoft Windows ) Nothing too fancy, just something small and simple. No manga or unicorns. Problem is, when I inevitably switch to 'Library' or 'Full Mode' and then back, the skin reverts to standard version. A trifling problem, but still irritating. I have to download the preferred skin and install it all over again. Every time.

When I go to Organize>Options>Plug-Ins>Now Playing there's nothing
in the empty box. Not sure if this is relevant or not? But, is there any
way to 'lock' the new skin as the only Now Playing skin?


These are 'Now Playing' skins I'm DL'ing, right?

Anyways, thanks for any help getting me sorted here!
