How to use Mini View in Windows 10 Movies & TV app
Open the Movies & TV app and start playing a video. The Mini View feature is a small screen icon located next to the full-screen option. The icon looks like a frame inside a rectangle.
You still have all the video controls which appear when you hold the mouse over the window. Also, the window can be repositioned and resized as needed. To revert to the normal-sized window of the Movies & TV app you just need to click on the Mini button in the mini window.
This new feature can be quite useful, as we often need to multitask and it lets us do that while also watching a video or carrying a Skype conversation. Have you tried Mini View and how do you like it?
