Hello, I originally installed Silverlight 4 and it asked me to select if I wanted to enable the option that allows me to keep silverlight in Full Screen mode when i'm using other applications and I said NO. This was a mistake. I need to go back and tell is YES becuase I have a dual monitor setup and need my secondary monitor to continue playing a silverlight video in full screen mode while I work on other applications on my primary monitor.

I have tried uninstalling the entire silverlight application and re-installing it but when I re-installed it, it didnt ask me the question again, it just installed it. I am running this in a 32-bit Windows XP Pro machine.

I would appreciate the help.

Thank you

serg2626--The simplest solution is to click the F11 key.
If you originally installed Silverlight 4 quite recently, you could use System Restore to a date before you installed it.  Then reinstall.
Otherwise

serg2626--I think my suggestions were quite "clear".  Of course, they may not have worked for you.  Did you try them?  Especially
