Windows 7: W7 Pro OS - Media Player - Playlists - Custom Navigation Pane Problems

W7 Pro OS - Media Player - Playlists - Custom Navigation Pane Problems

I have enjoyed continued use of Windows Media Player through several OS updates.


Now, though I can manipulate virtually any aspect of my desktop appearance, WMP generates a Playlists Custom Navigation Pane that drops down below the bottom of the desktop: no tool, skill or work-around that I am familiar with has allowed me to shrink this pane sufficiently to get to the 'OK/CANCEL' button at the very bottom. I very much want to work with the appearance of my playlist group: any advice?



Many thanks and glad to have found this W7 forum for future need. - D/Minnesota

Just an idea that I have seen work in similar situations before. Hit the F11 key to collapse the Navigation Pane, then select the edge of the collapsed Navigation Pane and drag it to the right and down. This will hopefully fill the screen and show you the OK/CANCEL button you require.

I hope this helps!
