When I view a video in Elements 11, how do I show the video in full screen, rather than the teeny, weeny picture?

I can hit F11 on photos to use Full Screen, but this does not work for videos.

Any suggestions?

Hello Cliff,
Select your video in the Elements organizer, then select from the View menu select Full screen. This will play the video in the full screen. When playing the video you will see a Gear settings icon. There is a check box in the settings dialog box that allows you video to resize. I am using a mac as I was able to use the scroll wheel to zoom in and out of the video.
Thanks

Scot,

Thanks for the tip. While it only goes to about 3/4 size of the full screen, it is a lot better.
When I use the scroll wheel, it says it is going to 300%, but it then goes back to the beginning of the video at 3/4 screen size.
