    As the tittle suggests I'm having problems with windows media player 11 staying in full screen mode. Every time I'm playing a video file off of a playlist and I hit the next button, or when a file finishes playing it drops out of full screen mode.

    So far I've tried messing with the advanced options in the performance tab, and that hasn't changed anything. I know I can lock the player into full screen mode using that little lock icon on the lower right hand corner of the console, but entering a stupid pin number when I want to look something up real quick gets pretty annoying, since I switch between the player and my browser fairly often.

    Any way to get this frustrating program to perform as advertised?

    My WMP9 is the same.
    However, I can use VLC, and have no such issues.

    WMP isn't a very good media player anyway, never was.
