How to Start Windows Media Player in Full Screen


Windows Media Player is a video and music player capable of playing back plenty of file formats, including MP3, MP4, WMA and WMV. If you want to view your media in in its largest form, then you will want to enable the full-screen capability of Windows Media Player. Enabling this option is simple and easy, and you'll be able to view your content in the biggest way possible.

  • Open Windows media player and then select the file you want to play back by using Windows Media Player's "Open" function.

  • Scroll to the bottom of the program and find the button that looks like a box with an arrow pointing to the left. This is the "Full Screen" button. Click on this button, and the window will automatically fill the screen.

  • Click on the thumbtack button. This button will ensure that playback controls are always visible during full-screen presentations and will save the full-screen format as the default playback size.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have decided that you don't want to use a full-screen display anymore, simply press the "Esc" button to restore the window to regular size.
