Summary0001403: No way to get the player out of full screen mode when only one monitor is connected

I tried the new full screen-mode of the player, now I have a black screen, and the only option I seem to have is to ALT-F4 out of the player. I guess we need ways to get out of these modes, e.g. by pressing ESC or something similar.

The only way to solve this for now seems to edit the player setup parameters in config.file. Or buy a second monitor ;-)

Does F11 work?

In WIN64, F11 brings back the desktop, and a small player window. However, no menu bar, and even that tiny window can not be moved, resized, etc., it just sits there small and black. Similar in OS X, the screen edges are darkened, but no menu bar. The good thing in OSX, it always comes up in normal mode after I CMD-Q the player and restart. In WIN64, the menuless state is sticky. It seems I can't get out without manually editing the config file.

What are the available config file options for player appearance, so I can play a little bit with it?

At least no issue anymore in OS X, F11 properly activates and deactivates full screen. Have to check 2.13.82 in WIN64.

F11 works for me in Windows now, too. Let me know if it doesn't for you!
