Windows 7: Media Player Window Size

Media Player Window Size

Since upgrading to Windows 7, Windows Media Player hasn't been saving my window size after closing. I have "Fit Player to Video" deselected yet every time I open a video file the Media Player window opens in the dimensions of the video file as if it were, instead of resizing to the size of the window before the last time I closed it. If I just open Windows Media Player though it remembers the size of the window and opens to those dimensions. I didn't have this problem in Vista. Does anyone know how to fix this so that when I open a video file it opens to the size of the window before the last time I closed Media Player?

Hi soccastar001,
