Media player changes Wave volume control

I am using Windows XP and every time I play a video in Windows Media
Player, it changes Wave Volume Control, not the main volume, wave
volume. At first I could not figure out why the volume on my computer
was so low even when the main volume was set high. Not until I double
clicked on speaker icon on taskbar, I noticed wave volume was very
low.
Every time I play a movie, wave volume gets changed back to very low.
I could understand it adjusting main volume for loud movies, but why
wave, not main volume? How do I prevent Media Player from changing it?
And Windows Media Player is the only one that does it, Winamp or
iTunes does not change it.

This is likely not the group where you're going to get an answer to that 
kind of question, but I'd wonder if media player isn't just changing the 
main volume with it's own control and not putting it back. That would be 
easy enough to check (you could look at the volume control while changing it 
in media player.  I'd guess there is no way to override that except perhaps 
to get a later version of media player and see if it works differently.

Out of control listbox height setting
I have a listbox on an Access 2007 form with a height setting of two inches. In form view the listbox displayed is four or five inches in height.

Media player queuing
I have (now) windows xp home, because windows blew up and I had to re-install my operating system. Before, I played audio tracks with my choice media player, Media Monkey. I could right-click an audio track in my comp and in the box that popped up, I could see these options : play next, play last (and more). I could queue several tracks in the player. Well, I've read every line of every catagory and sub-catagory in the player and can't figure out how to do that again!

preventing changes to document
How can I protect a Publisher document so no changes can be made Nothing you can do will stop someone from making changes if they want. To stop most people, convert it to a .pdf file. But remember - there are several .pdf editors out there and some of them are inexpensive enough for casual users. You don't need to spend a couple of hundred dollars these days. -- JoAnn Paules MVP Microsoft [Publisher] ~~~~~ How to ask a question http://support.microsoft.com/KB/555375 "sleek881" <sleek881@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:C8710942-CDC6-4F54-8F67-C...

MRU list
The Recently Used Files list in Office apps is behaving oddly. The number of items in the list fluctuates from day to day. Yesterday several files were opened in Excel, but today there are no files in the list even though it's still set at the default to display 4. I know the settings can be different depending on which product you are in and what the MRU is set at for that product, but this is within the same office product with no changes to the MRU setting. I've had a couple of staff report this issue but haven't found a resolution. We are using office xp SP3. Ellen...

Changing background on part of a dialog
What I want to do is have a white rectangle on a dialog, on which will be various controls (currenly only checkboxes). I tried handling the OnPaint() for the dialog, and doing a CDC::FillSolidRect() but the background on the checkboxes stayed grey. The obvious solution was to just do the same thing w/the checkboxes. That is, I tried making a class out of a CButton, then handled the OnPaint for that. Unfortunately, the mere handling on the OnPaint() for that made the checkbox go away. This has nothing to do with the white rectangle painting over the checkbox, because the control would disapp...
