Windows 7: Box shows up in fullscreen mode

Box shows up in fullscreen mode

So this happens when I'm on YouTube and I think on Facebook. When I enter full screen mode, a box appears on the top of the screen telling me I'm in full screen mode (duh). The reason I post this question is because up until not too long ago, I never got that box, ever. Is there any way to keep it from appearing? Included is a picture of the offending box.

Does it not disappear after a few moments? This, I would think to be a You Tube poblem not Windows!

It appears whenever I first full screen a video on YouTube and it has done it, in the past with Facebook. It never used too. I really hate it. It's like "No duh it's full screen, I just full screened it!!!" lol It does it to my best friend on his Windows 8.1 machine also.

As I said it is nothing to do with Windows!!! I asked if it disappears after a few moments? Please reply. If it annoys you that much I suggest you contact You Tube!

I see it with Netflix videos. There's a FF addon to disable it, presumably that means you can disable it in other browsers too.

Thanks alpha. And yes mitchell it goes away after a few seconds but it's utterly pointless to have anyone.

Force fullscreen games to in window mode?
Hi, I have a few games that don't offer window mode in the options. Is there any way to force the games to play in window mode instead of fullscreen? Going to .exe's properties checking the compability doesn't help either. Any ideas on what I can do to fix this?

Black screen Errors on Fullscreen mode
When entering fullscreen mode, mostly when playing games, I land on a black screen. I can't exit it and I have to manually reboot the computer. I can still hear the noise from the game, it's just that the screen is black and it blinks every few seconds when on "black screen mode". Any advice?
