When I set WMP 10 to View Full Screen, it still leaves bars at top and bottom which obscure part of the titles when running Photo Story 3. How can I force WPM 10 to use the whole screen?

If you keep the mouse still the bars and the mouse should disappear.

Many thanks - it WAS the mouse pointer causing the problem!

It's not a problem as such, just the means to be able to get at the various controls.

Most similar programs, including TV card displays, do the same thing; if you "hide" the cursor offscreen it will stop the reappearence of the bars.
