Windows Media Player off screen - HELP

Somehow I managed to get WMP12 off the right of the screen. I've tried disabling / re-enabling it and can't find help elsewhere and even changing resolutions, but I can't get it back on-screen. There's no 'Move' function (on the taskbar) like there is in XP and Vista.
