Windows Media Player 10 problem

  1. Have a problem with Windows Media Player, what happen was I upgraded from WMP 9 to WMP 10 and it was fine for a while then it just stopped displaying on my desktop. I can open it fine but it sits on the Task bar and doesn't show on the desktop. If I click on it in the Task bar it goes off to the side of the screen but doesn't display. I can go through the Music folder and player music through WMP but I do not see the interface on the desktop.

    What has happened can you help?.

    I have removed WMP 10 and gone back to 9 but with no change. I have looked in properties of WMP and made sure it was the same as the other media players with no success.

    Please help as I am now using Winamp and don't like it as much.

    So its in the taskbar, and the program works, but its off the screen?

    Move it back on the screen then. Select that program in the taskbar, hit alt, then hit space, then hit m, and then play around with the arrow keys on your keyboard. That should allow you to move it back onto the screen.

    Thanks for that, it worked great. From now on I know what to do so I will not have that problem again.
