    i remember way back, windows player had a nice clipboard like screen where you can pull out the side to make it bigger. I like watching my videos that way.. Now i'm stuck with a crappy LARGE Media like window where the video is very small and i can't pull it out or nothing..

    I want to see a Big Picture of the video.. how do i convert it back to regular or to watch it big (i don't mean full screen) How do you watch your videos? thanks!!

    Well Hi!,
    that's not what I was trying to say but, hey...YOU picked that name! :D


    I suppose you have a recent version of MP. As far as I know you are stuck with the zoom 200% or full screen (ALT-ENTER) as your large choices.

    That is the reason why I always leave a copy of MP6.4. on one of my PCs, Expand the windows to any size - open 10 windows at once - sometimes simple is better!

    I just fired up WMP 7.1 and went to compact mode with it. I haven't loaded the bloated and buggy WMP 9, and I don't intend to.
