iTunes 10 Album Art controller always on top Apps
I love the new feature of iTunes 10 to use album art as a mini-player (if you click on the album art preview in the bottom left, the album art that pops up now has hover controls to change tracks); but what if you want this to always be visible when working in other applications?

In iTunes, go to Preferences » Advanced and check the box 'Keep movie window on top of all other windows.' Now the album art controller will always be visible. I like to make it super small and tuck it into a corner. Works great!

[crarko adds: It tested this in 10.6.4. This is a followup to this earlier hint. I'd expect it should work in both 10.5 and 10.6, just like that one did.]

What if you don't want it to show at all? The dang thing pops open every time I click on a track to play it, and if I close it, iTunes stops playing the track! The only thing I've been able to do so far is hide/minimize it into the Dock.

Oh, and how do you make it "super small"? Mine won't shrink any smaller than about 1/12-th of my 13" screen.

I'm guessing the hint submitter has one or more rather large monitors if he can afford to just "tuck it away" in a corner of his screen.
