I have been using Google Music ever since I was able to get an account. I have already synced all the my music to it. It works great in my browser. I have one issue though. This:
It becomes just another tab in my browser. It could even be just another tab in just another instance of Chrome. This is a pain. A song I don’t like comes up and I want to go to the next or my phone rings and I need to pause the song. It is a firstworldproblem, but annoying nonetheless.
I wanted to make it more of an app. It should have its own spot in my taskbar. Because I run Windows 7 it should pinned as well so it is always there.
Chrome to the rescue
Google Chrome makes this easy. Navigate to your Google Music page http://music.google.com. Click the little wrench > Tools > Create application shortcuts. You should get a window that pops up letting you choose where to put the shortcut.
It will now work just like any other application and have its own spot in your taskbar.
