Windows 7: Everytime I play a MP3 WMP12 Opens Maximised.

Everytime I play a MP3 WMP12 Opens Maximised.

Hi everyone, basically as it say's in the title WMP12 now opens maximized every time I play a MP3 file. It used to always just play the song and be minimized. Its really annoying every time you click for a MP3 to play it goes back to this maximized window. I really cant figure this out, all and any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards

This is a VERY simple fix when you start WMP 12 it starts Maximised but you click play now screen it always started minimised well after searchin a lot of places trying to find an answer i found a very & i mean simple

Forcing a window to open maximized...

Hold down <Ctrl+Alt> while dragging the window to fill the screen,
do not release the keys, then close the window then release the keys. It may work on other application windows i have only done it on WMP 12
