When Google does things, they do it in such a way that you will instantly love it. Google Desktop is one good example. It makes life easier by enabling your PC to perform the way you want it to perform. Of course there are several issues about Google Desktop, including the space it takes on your C Drive when it index your files. But that is some space I am willing to give Google Desktop for making search on my desktop easier.
As I was searching for Google Gadgets that would enable me to make my PC more useful, i stumbled upon their music gadget. It is a plugin that indexes music files and bring them together on your desktop so that it is easy for you to search and play songs as you are on the move.
There are several limitations to many of the music players that are available today. One thing is that they are incapable of searching your files out and bring it for you when you need them. If you have too many files on your system and that too in different places, it is difficult for you to locate them. The Music Player by Google Desktop automatically adds all your music files to the library and all that you got to do is type in the song you want and presto, it is there for you.
As you see in the image, it categorizes songs Artist, Album and Track wise. You can add the song of your choice to the play list. Or the album of your choice to your playlist. Or the artist of your choice to your playlist.
What I like the most about this gadget is that you have one button less on your taskbar!
