Windows 7: Any way to add Windows Media icon to system tray please?

Add Windows Media icon to system tray please? SORTED

Not important in the vastness of all things Windows 7 but an irritation that has me baffled .... how do/can I get the Windows Media icon to appear in my system/task tray please?

I have Windows Media Centre selected to show icon and notifications but that only shows when updating.

I would like to have easy access to my DVD and CD music playing and so thought that having Windows Media icon in the tray would be the way to go?

All and any help most gratefully received please. :)

Start Windows Media Center and right click icon on task bar, pin to taskbar. Hopefully you will like this? Then you can start WMC with a single click.
