How do I hide the Dell Power DVD control panels while watching a DVD?

  1. I am using a Dell Inspiron 1000 Laptop with Windows XP SP 2 very basic! I have Windows Media Player Zoom Player and VLC and some movies play on all these players and some dont play without issues and I dont have the full versions of Zoom Player or Nero ShowTime so if anyone can shoot me over the full versions of those programs it will help, but in the mean time if I have to use Power DVD to watch some movies from Netflix that come from Independent distributors that dont play on my Sylvania DVD player and are not always encrypted to play on every single DVD player out there expect for the ones with firmware and progressive scan and things like that to get past it. How do I close the window with the controls for play,fast forward,rewind ect. It should collapse completely off the screen on its own so that all I see is the LetterBox or Fullscreen ratio of the film but it doesn't! Is this just a wack program to use for movies or I just dont know it well enough?

    I just click on another part of the screen and the control panel disappears.

    Do you know what version number of PowerDVD you are using?
