WMP Default Player Size Changed

No clue what happened, but WMP used to automatically open in a small player, but the other day it started opening in a massive window & now I can't get it to change back to opening in a small window by default

Can't find anything online that tells you how to change the default player size for WMP, so no clue how the change happened to me or how to go about changing it back


Thanks

Ah, got it. But I've never had the skin look or menu shown before, so there has to be a way that I was doing it before?

That I cannot answer. Probably those gremlins that we all get, LOL.

Thanks for getting me that far. Tried holding ctrl while closing WMP & it worked (didn't work the first time I tried it though, so who knows)
