As Diodorus Siculus points out, that is the route.

You can Enable all the file types if you wish or which are required (don't forget to Apply and then OK afterwards) - it's worth downloading the WMP9 codecs pack from the WMP home page at microsoft.com, which also applies to WMP10.

Another useful codecs pack is the Standard version from click here which will cover the bulk of most peoples' needs.

i hope Im not sounding stupid.........

to get the tools menu, you press the little down arrow beside the minimise/maximise/close buttons at the top.

It took me about a week to figure out where those menus where. lol, there's a big "D" on my hat for a reason!

You've really stumped me there.

I've always click on Tools - and, I suspect, so have many, many, many thousands of others....:-)

that only applies in skin mode not full mode in which case you press the arrow to get access to the drop down menu with file, view, play, tools and help......As I implied it may seem a simple enough thing but it's not obvious and anyway the reply wasn't for your benefit!

Pooke.
