Once the mini-player opens, it will be in your taskbar with the icon of your browser. If you create a desktop shortcut, you can give it a different icon so that it will always be easy to get to. Enjoy.
The best part about the web app is that the top bar actually shows the artist and song info, which is not part of the desktop player. You can then resize the app down to just the bar, making it effectively a status bar, which I leave sitting just under my browser window.
You could combine with the mini-banner to get tools to make a more complete mini-player, if you're into that kind of thing. I mostly just want song info at the ready.
Hello there. Thanks for the solution. But in my "mini player" there is only one buttom play/pause. Am I doing something wrong. Is there another setting to configure or this feature was change and you can no longer skip track with it?
Thank you. If I am paying for an app, I demand a mini player. Can't believe Spotify is so obtuse on this matter. I can understand on the free version with the advertising but if I pay I want it my way!!
This was working for me yesterday using the Win+R and typing the command. However, now that I've tried to do the chrome shortcut and the batch file, and even going back to using the Win+R command, the player that comes up is missing the button. Is anyone else seeing this? I don't know why this isn't just a function of their desktop player...
