As the title says, my windows media player won't go into fullscreen mode. When I try to, it juss goes to a black screen for a few seconds and then it goes back to the normal size. This juss started happening recently. Anyone know what I should do?

Make sure your screen saver isn't kicking you out of full-screen mode. Also, turning of the Enable full-screen mode switch feature might solve the problem. In Windows Media Player 9 Series or later, do the following:
On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Performance tab.
Click Advanced.

Clear the Enable full-screen mode switch check box.

oh im sorry i read that wrong, i thought u meant to make sure Enable Full Screen Mode Switch is checked, not cleared. And sure enough it was checked so thanks it now works.
