I made this a few days ago while brushing up on my UI/Photoshop skills. I wasn't going to post it anywhere until a friend mentioned it might be of interest to other Spotify users.
The idea came about, after I kept maximising and minimising Spotify just to see my play queue and sometimes jump down a few . This is my solution making it a less obtrusive way of seeing what's coming up and track jumping.
I'm sure there are lots of limitations as to why this can't be made into a real working taskbar item, but any feedback is still much appreciated.
The image is still awaiting approval so it might not be showing up for some. You can view it online here: http://forr.st/~UMb

To all Spotify desktop users out there:
There should be collapse buttons on main/apps and collection just like on the playlists. This would make it easier to choose what you want higlighted. It is also a problem on laptop and other monitors with a 16/9 ratio where there is limited vertical resolution.

Android, Desktop (Windows 7 and 8), Squezzebox, XBMC all connected.
I want to be able to adjust the fontsize of the windows spotify client, so i can use it on my mediacenter without binoculars. On a 42" tv it is just not readable unless you are right in front of it. That is not the idea of a mediacenter. So I don't use spotify on it.
I just recently started using Windows Media Center a lot and am loving it more and more now... I know there is already a post for Windows Media Center DLNA support or whatever that is called but that is not what this is about...
Spotify is alot like the Netflix of music, and Netflix has a plugin for Windows Media Center that places them under the "Movies" selection... would it be impossible to ask for a plugin from Spotify that goes under the "Music" category in place of the actual Spotify application? This would be great for someone like me that never disconnects the computer from their television.
I think it also would be possible also maybe to allow a visualization play with the music, and add an option to allow the Spotify plugin to download album art and use it as the screensaver on Windows Media Center.
For those who haven't tried it, try listening to NIN Ghosts album with some white noise of the rain... really keeps you focues and all outside noise away (when working in a public area like an office).
Please bear in mind that the Community is not an official Spotify support service. It's a place where we all help each other, whether we work for Spotify or not. So please use your discretion when using the forum.
