Up until last week, I could hover my mouse over the Windows Media Player icon on my task bar, and after a second or two, a play/pause button appeared (and I think a skip forward and skip back button too). Now it's gone, so I need to fully open the WMP window then click the pause button within that.
How can I bring back those buttons when hovering over the task bar icon?
It should look like this (when paused, that is. When playing, there's a pause button instead of the play button):
The installed version of WMP is 12.0.7601.17514
