    You know how sometimes when you watch something, half of the screen is taken by the black areas at the top and bottom. Is there a way to get rid of it? so the video would be full screen.

    Are you talking about watching movies on your PC, or is the screen like that all the time?

    If you're watching movies, what are you using as your player?
