Minimize Theater View
« on: March 11, 2018, 03:10:16 pm »


Is it possible to minimize MC23 when in Theater View as opposed to having to close it? Recently upgraded from Win7/Windows Media Center to Win10/MC23, and it really annoys me that I can't minimize when in Theater View like I could with Windows Media Center.

I have a button on my keyboard that minimizes all open Windows.

Or Escape, Escape (which drops you back to Standard View), then click the Minimise button as normal.

Ctrl-1 also drops you into Standard View.

When you maximise again, Ctrl-4 changes to Theatre View.
