    Windows Media Player Q


    Hi, Is there a way to get WMP to open maximised when I double click a video file, instead of opening just the size of the video? Is this a setting within WMP, like play maximised, or is it a separate command?

    Normally if you maximise the WMP window the system remembers this and will open next time as a maximised window. I have just tried this on mine and it remembered the setting.

    Sorry, just checked again on some other videos and I see that if the native video size was smaller than full screen then it reverts back to a smaller size window. Mmm... may need to check a bit further.

    Yeah, this works sometimes if I double click on the program icon to open it, but if I open it by double clicking on a media file it doesn't

    Yes, I looked some more and agree it is not consistent - just edited my previous post.
