    Windows media player getting out of full screen While working on a multiple monitor

    I utilize a laptop and an exterior Monitor at the similar time. On the exterior monitor I play a movie in the windows media player in full screen form w when I work on the other. Each time I click on the screen on which I am functioning, the windows media player on full screen lashes out of Full screen form. Extremely maddening this was not a trouble on Microsoft windows vista, why is this occurrence on windows 7 ultimate 64 bit? Anyone have any idea about this problem? If anyone get the solution for this then please provide to me.

    This activity may take place while a program utilizes Microsoft DirectX Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to toggle the screen resolution to a lesser size. While this takes place, the desktop from the main monitor may be relocated to the inferior monitor. Note that this indication disappears while you stop or minimize the program which caused the resolution change. I suggest you to ensure for the visualization settings on the windows media player.
    1. Unlock Windows media player.
    2. Push Tab key to observe the pop down menu, after that click on View- Plug-ins- Options.
    3. On Options window, click Plug-ins tab, below type select Visualizations.
    4. Click on the visualization you are utilizing, and after that click Properties.
    5. Click the screen size which matches the resolution of your main monitor.
    6. Apply modifies and start again the windows media player.

    Note: You may unable to modify some visualization. This activity may take place with any program which utilizes DirectX APIs to alter screen resolutions. Games normally display this behavior. Expect this information is helpful.

    I don't think it is a resolution problem, I think myself as a specialist level user. So I think you should consider my hesitation. Suppose you just have single screen like a typical home computer and you play a video in full screen form. Then click or twice click the mouse button on the screen anywhere, and the windows media player throw out of full screen form thinking that is what the user is intending to perform, the similar situation appears to be occurrence in my case with multiple screen space.

    I have an excellent instance of this effect. Suppose you are playing a YouTube flash video on the exterior monitor in full screen and you click on the further screen and unexpectedly it kick out of full screen. Since this is YouTube and flash movie I can understand the programming deficiency. In my case, this is windows media player, which utilized to execute perfectly on the windows vista and now does not on the windows 7. It must be is a programming incompleteness or the coder was not expecting a situation like mine. The programmer should split out the two screens as two dissimilar work spaces like on the windows vista.

    I have a laptop with Microsoft windows 7 and at any time I place a movie on or play video game, my screen is on full screen but it is not on full screen, the screen is setup vertically and down in its place of giving me the full screen. thus while I watch a movie I have to black screens on both sides surrounding the game and movie how do I toggle that back to getting a full screen? Any idea about this?

    I have few steps, which may be helpful in your case.
    1. Unlock window media player
    2. Go to option on performance tab below Video acceleration click on advanced
    3. Below DVD video check mark on: “Use video mixing renderer” and check mark on “Enable full screen mode switch”.
    It should be worked currently. So must try these steps. Good luck
