    When you have the player minimized and the toolbar showing whenever a song
    switches or when you mouse over the toolbar a notification box pops up
    displaying what song is playing.
    Is there a way to disable that notification or to move where it pops up at?

    I'm using WMP11 with Win XP SP3.

    Yes - you can disable the toolbar itself (for starters) as it sounds
    (sic) like this isn't something you want at all.

    In a blank part of the taskbar, to the left of the click - right
    click, and from the menu shown select Toolbars, then uncheck the
    "Windows media player toolbar"

    This feature was removed anyway in windows 7 / WMP12 so it won't
    bother you any more if you update from XP.

    If you want the toolbar player but *not* the popup, ZachD's site
    indicates some changes you can (carefully) make to the Windows
    registry using regedit : http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html#deskband

    "Can I change the timeout for the pop-up (toast) window in the taskbar
    player? " : Set the value to 0x0 as shown, to prevent the flyout/popup

    HTH
