I have had this happen 3 times now to 3 different people. The problem is this: in windows XP the windows media player somehow gets stuck in compact mode. when i try to right click and go to full mode, the full mode option is greyed out. The first time i ran into the problem, i fixed it by deleting the registry settings for windows media player. However, in the next two cases, i did the same thing, and it didn't work. I've tried removing and then reinstalling WMP, i've tried upgrading it, nothing works. Has anyone ran into this problem, and if so, how did they fix it short of wiping the whole system?
