hi, i would like to know how i can get my laptop to display a dvd that i am watching in a reduced size window and be able to surf the internet at the same time . At the moment i can bring up the dvd window (reduced in size )on top of another page , however as soon as i navigate on the internet page the dvd window automatically reduces itself on to the task bar. Is there a program , tweak which will stop this from occurring ?It would be great to surf and watch at the same time! Any info greatly appreciated , geeks rock, jhon

Hi jhon108,

Welcome to Geeks to go! :)

I do apologize for the delay in responding.

You should be able to open WMP and your browser then minimize the windows to have them placed side by side as I do.

I don't use VLC so can't really advise.
