    When I connect my projector to my laptop and project a video on a screen using windows media player 11, the projector projects the image in full screen. I don't want the projection into full screen mode because I am projecting on an interactive white board and would like to pause and stop the video from the board rather than always going back to the laptop.

    Is there a way to project a video on a screen using windows media player 11 and still see the window with all the controls (not in full screen mode)?

    I found a solution...access the setting on the video driver and deselect "Full screen video" mode.
