Docking WMP

Have MS removed the ability to dock wmp into the taskbar like you could with vista? I thought that was rather nice feature.

It should be automatically docked upon installation.

+1 on that!!!
Also rather annoying is the fact when you minimize media player and launch another music file from a folder for example, media player jumps back into view on the desktop rather than stay minimized.....humph!!!

Maybe that is the new docking method because you can pause, forward and rewind with it.
