    WMP Toolbar

    How can I Re-Enable this? I aquired the dll file from my Windows Vista copy. I can't seem to find any tutorials for W10 and I really miss this feature.

    I followed all the instructions for regsvr32 and all that crap and it registered the DLL but it refuses to show under the toolbars.

    There's a tutorial on SevenForums, it may work in Windows 10 as well (no promises though).
    SevenForums | How to Add Windows Media Player Taskbar Toolbar in Windows 7 and Windows 8

    Edit: @RECONBunny, there's a Tip at the end of the tutorial about what to try if it keeps disappearing.

    That trick to get WMP on Windows 10 was started by one of the users of a site and if I put a link to it on TenForums it will get deleted in seconds I am not even going to chance PM'ing you the link.

    With that said I think there is a site dedicated to everything about WMP and similar programs and the devices used to receive TV on your computer called " The Green Room " try there.

    Long story short now, As far as I know that trick has not worked for at least two or three month's I was going to see if it gets fixed somehow after the next major update to Windows which is near the end of next month if i'm not mistaken.
