if you just leave it in the middle of the screen, the screen will expand to full screen without the menus etc and then a few seconds later the mouse curser should go too. Otherwise yeah, just shove it off the right or bottom.

*Leans back and sighs*



I love now having two massive (17" and 19") monitors in a rediculously high resolution. That means i can put G-Force sh-it hot visualisation on the 19" i screen, full screen it, and write stuff or browse HOP on the smaller monitor!!!!!



G-Force main website



Its properly :drool:



and why would i be posting about it not disapearing in full screen mode if it does it automatically??? Do you think I wiggle the mouse around all the way through a two hour film???? ubblol



oh...and I can also remember when all this was fields.

Windows media player can be annoying at times in full screen mode, sometimes it does that to me and the only way to get it working is to close it and reopen. Mine is currently in a really annoying mode which I can't get rid of.

Multiple monitors are the way forward. I've had 3 machines with 20", 19" and 17" crts on my desk whilst at uni. Gonna move to 3 (possibly 4) 17" tfts soon, when (if) I get a job smile The price has dropped big time recently, 4 17" tfts cost a grand if you shop around, much better use of money than getting a car smile

Jon it wouldn't surprise me if you did spend two hours wiggling your mouse (or whatever you've called it this week) through a two hour film, getting custard all over the place!! wink

so in full screen mode you hover the curosr over the movie playing and teh screen should expand fill teh screen and rmove the cursor, if not scroll teh mouse over to the middle of the right side of the screen and it will go into the dead space of teh screen, and then its gone!
