Windows Media Player Control Fade Out Delay

    Question

  • Is there a way to have the controls (pause/play/slider) fade out faster?  It takes about 6 seconds for 'em to disappear.  I want to make it more like 1 or 2 seconds.

  • What I ended up doing is:

    1. Use TweakMP so when I'm watching in fullscreen.
    2. Use Skin Mode (Corporate skin) in non-fullscreen because the controls are at the bottom of the vid.  Out of the way.  I would have preferred the normal skin, but, oh well.

  • Hi eddiexvf,

    Do you mean when you click Play/Pause, it reacts slowly?

    When did this issue happen?

    Where's your Library location? Local or network?

    If you installed any add-ons or plug-ins, please temoprarily disable them then check if it works.

    If not work, please perform a Clean Boot in case of any third-party service conflicts.

    Regards,

    Miya

  • Miya, no, it doesn't react slowly, the controls disappears slowly.  For example, when I play a vid, I want the controls to go away faster instead of lingering for about 6 seconds.  They get in the way of watching the vid.

    Here's an example of the controls:

  • You should be able to change that timeout with the TweakMP powertoy.

  • Thanks, Tim, however, it (TweakMP) only does it Fullscreen.
