    I was just wondering.. is there any way to make WMP NOT show the control panel every time you move the mouse in full screen mode? I watch a lot of video in full screen, and I like WMP the best.. I just don't like that particular part. It's very annoying how just the slightest vibration of my desk disrupts my viewing by filling a fourth of the screen (or more) with a control panel.

    Thanks in advance. :D

    Use mplayer2.exe
    The rightclic on it and chose fullscreen.

    You can also download BSplayer for more feature.

    There's a way to completely remove the control panel from the full screen mode. Go to the options, under "performance". Uncheck the full screen control panel.

    The other way is to update to the last version of WMP 9. The only interesting new feature with it is the avi capability. Me, I don't like the new full screen and all the automatic screen adjustments made without your consent.
