    WMP-Disabling Visualizations

    How do I stop visualizations--not for just one song. I use the player minimized at work and each time a new song starts (CD) the annoying visualization window unfurls. There seems to be no choice under the list for "None" (duh).

    Re: WMP-Disabling Visualizations

    Thank you sir. And I am awed that you refrained from rubbing it in by saying anything infantile, like "duh."

    (I can't believe I overlooked this--haven't checked it on my company computer, where the problem is. It strikes me I may not have the newest version there--I'll update it if not.)

    We actually have a special smiley here in the lounge that's just perfect for such "infantile" usage. It's the "RTFM" smiley <img src=/S/rtfm.gif border=0 alt=rtfm width=24 height=23>, an acronym I'll leave you to look up if you haven't heard of it. Unlike his nym suggests, Rebel appears to be of the refined/ refrained genre. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    You're quite welcome Tal. As I keep telling my kids, "No question is a stupid question if you don't know the answer".

    I'm sure it's just the hockey team that are "Rebels" and not the coach. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> Your avitar belies your nom de plume.

    Re: WMP-Disabling Visualizations

    There is a choice for "No Visualizations" on the main viewer. It has a bullet (selection symbol) by it. But if I change to Skin Mode, the darn mini-window with visualations comes up and the menu no longer allows me to kill the darn things. Otherwise I like my teensy stairstep shaped skin! I can tuck it anywhere.

    Re: WMP-Disabling Visualizations

    Have tried to do this also in skin mode and cant find a way - I cant find a setting anywhere. However another way to do away with visualisation when minimised is to simply toggle the little arrow just above the "restore button" see attachment

    Re: WMP-Disabling Visualizations

    Hi Tal,
    Sorry for not responding before now. It looks like you are right. I can't find any way to turn off the visualisations in skin mode either. Maybe someone else has a solution?

    Re: WMP-Disabling Visualizations

    The only way I have found to do without visualizations in skin mode is to use a skin such as Classic, Compact or Corporate (there are a few more).

    Re: WMP-Disabling Visualizations

    See this: WMP Mini-FAQ. Apparently you need a null visualization and can not really turn visualizations off in skins mode.
