    Using WMP 11, Vista 64 bit. A week ago, the WMP icon started appearing in my bottom screen toolbar when I launch it. I can get a mini player on the toolbar if I double click on the icon. But I can no longer maximize WMP to full screen. I've tried "restore", "mamimize", etc., but nothing works. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Try Ctrl+Tab to open it, so first open WMP 11 then ctrl+tab!

    Right-click on WMP on the taskbar and click Move. If Move is greyed out click Restore first.

    Then use the right or left arrows to bring the window into view. The window is probably off the screen either to the right or left.

    Thank you to both of you for your help. It turned out the Move command worked and the window was offscreen for some reason. I would never have figured that out on my own.
