Roll FB2K in Win7

So you have Windows 7. Now to play all your music you could either use Windows Media Player, iTunes or maybe you were already planning on using Foobar2000. Well even if you were this is something you don’t want to miss out on. I’m going to link a few components and show you how to customize this program like it was meant to be!

Here’s my pack that is packed with 7Zip and is completely portable.

<< Download >>  Foobar2000 1.0 with Components

Just extract that to a folder that won’t get moved and create a shortcut by right clicking foobar2000.exe and clicking create shortcut. Then drag the shortcut to the desktop or the superbar or that start menu and use that to run the program.

Now to configure the music library. Click File/Preferences in Foobar. Click Media Library on the left and then remove the two folders that I had monitored [Unless by some freaky coincidence those happen to be where your music is stored] and add the folders that hold your music. Then that’s it. Now Foobar will have taskbar progress, a nice layout, tango buttons, and hover over the superbar icon of Foobar and see the album art, previous, play/pause, stop and next buttons.

Got a customization tip? Let me hear then!
