projecting Windows Media Player, quick help...

hey, i need to do a presentation for a class and i'm using a friend's laptop and projector.

I have some videos that i want to project with Windows Media Player but i wanted only to project the video part, i don't want the mouse/player controls to be visible.

Which options/preferences do i have to use for this?

thanks in advance, sorry if it's the wrong forum

Just switch to full screen mode (press "Alt + Enter"). The mouse and controls will be visible for a few seconds but will then disappear.

Can your laptop do a separate monitor instead of mirroring mode? If you can set that up, you should be able to have your mouse and menu stuff on the laptop screen and the video on the external projector.
