Zoom Player Help?

Chiyo-chan's fully recovered from her bout with the sniffles, but I need some help.  Zoom Player is my primary media program, I'm quite fond of it, but after reinstalling it everything starts up at 640 x (whatever) resolution.

How in the world do I make Zoom Player start playing a video at its native resolution???  I know there's a way to do it, I just can't find the right combination of thingies to make it happen and it's driving me crazy!

Okay, crazier.

1 I don't know either, and I've used Zoom Player for years.  Alt-2 sets it to native size for the currently playing video, but I'm not sure how to get it to do that automatically.

2 That's something they changed in V7. It no longer automatically switches tto the native resolution when a video starts playing. You have to hit ALT-2.

3 Or at least that's my experience. I haven't figured out a way to make it do  that automatically.

4 Advanced Options - Interface - Position&Size - Auto-Size User Interface to fit Source Video Resolution (on load)?

5 pxcasey, after following your instructions, I discovered that there is no "Auto-Size User Interface" option.  Which version are you using?

Steven, I've got V5; I hoped downloading an earlier version would give me what I wanted... no sign of it.  ALT-2 works, though.

Following a hint as given above, I just opened the options panel. Under Interface there's a "position and size" choice. One of the check boxes says "Auto-Size User Interface to fit Source Video Resolution (on load)".

When I checked that, it did size itself to the next file I tried to play. (V7)

7 That's for V7. V5 I think had it too.. might be in Interface instead of in Position?
