I took your advice, however, now, when it opens, it opens to, I believe, 12:9
aspect ratio. Additionally, the right-click that used to reveal properties
is no longer enabled. If you right click nothing happens; if you try to
resize it closes and you start over from the beginning.
Pause, mute, aspect ratio, are among features that I miss. I think I would
almost prefer going through the steps of choosing the 16:9 aspect ratio than
have it open on a single click. I like to be able to pause to refresh myself
or mute if someone calls on the telephone. If I want to stop or quiet a
movie, I have to turn it off and start over. I do like how it jumps into a
movie though. That method of configuration is a no nonsense opening of a
movie. If it just had the 16:9 aspect ratio, I believe I wouldn't mind
losing the other features so much.
By the way, where did you find the 'monitoraspect choice'? Did you just make
it up and the computer understood? I would like to know how to do that.
