WMP11 Fullscreen Double-Click not working

by Wizzzzzard / August 26, 2011 2:11 PM PDT

When I play a video in XP WMP11 and double-click it to enter fullscreen mode nothing happens, the problem was present in WMP10 so I upgraded to WMP11 but the problem still remained, the problem is only associated with avi's or mpg's, wmv files fullscreen on double-click without a problem, double-click to exit fullscreen works fine.

I have been stuck with this problem for a few years now and would like to find a solution if possible, perhaps there's a corrupt registry key or something that can be repaired.

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

I can use the right click full screen but I would like to try and fix the double click method!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
