    Popup for pause/volume controls in Metro music apps

    Not sure if this belongs here or in Software and Apps

    I want the volume popup bar with the track title information for Windows Media Player, does anyone know if this is possible, perhaps with a registry edit?
    I mainly notice it in gMusic app and I've seen the Pandora app have it as well (Whenever I hit the pause button, it will pop up with album art, artist and track info as well as a volume slider)

    I mainly use Windows Media Player for music though so I'd like this cool feature for that program, it would be very handy when I'm playing a game and I don't want to alt+tab out just to see what song is playing

    i don't think a registry edit will change the way WMP was written/created to perform
