Windows Media Player - Black Bar on Bottom

by fwhagen Sat, 12 April 2008

I have looked this up 3 times now, so I am posting it here. 

Every once in awhile, WMP will add a black bar at the bottom of the display area.  This is not the letter-boxing of video, as it is normal in full-screen mode and also appears while playing audio files.  The bar is the Subtitle Area.  To disable, Right-Click the display area, select "Lyrics, Captions and Subtitles", and choose "Off".  It's gone.

Some key press activates it for me accidentally.  I doubt it's the default Ctrl-Shirt-C combo; that would be awfully hard to oops. Now we know.
