Default Minor Win 7 / WMP issue

I like the new WMP in Windows 7. But as a widescreen user that moved the taskbar to the left side, I noticed that when double clicking on movie files from Explorer the WMP window starts below the taskbar. It doesn't save the position so if I move the window, close it and try again it starts below the taskbar again.

don't have the taskbar on the left...

but if you must be weird you can try a program called "zmover" and it should do what you're wanting it to

Taskbar on the left is great if you have a widescreen.

It's just a minor and annoying issue.

I still like both the new taskbar and WMP. Being able to download a Apple HD trailer (H264) from http://www.hd-trailers.net and play it directly in WMP was great. No need for Apple Quicktime software (not that I had it before either, but anyway).

i have the same problem

just for me I moved the bar to top, and almost everytime WMP opens it opens behind the bar and can't get to the close/minimize buttons.

Close is easy enough, the minimize is the tough one

My taskbar is also on the top. To close, just mouse over the WMP icon and then click the x and voila
