Help with Windows Media Player

Whenever I open a video file to view with the media player it opes in a very small screen. Is there a way to get it to open in full screen? Thanks

With the problem window open right click on the Quick Launch Tray and then click on Show Windows Stacked. This might do the trick . . . but I am not certain.

When you'll open a video in it, maximize it and close WMP. Then try to play some of your video files, it should stay maximized. It works for me

Perhaps it opens with 50% resolution. Right click on the WMP window, go to Videos, check the option fit player to video, and set the resolution to 200% (as shown in the screenshot).
But if your desktop's resolution is bigger than the movie's resolution, it wount be opened in full screen till. Then you have to prace the maximize window button on the top right corner of the WMP window
