    Is there any way to resize the window for the lyrics in
    Windows Media Player 10? I can only see 6 lines at a
    time.:(

    If you're still keen on it, try below:

    run "regedit.exe" from start menu. (open Registry Editor)
    -> select
    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Player\Tasks\NowPlaying"
    key.
    -> change "CaptionHeight" entry shown in right pane to the height you want.
    -> open Windows Media Player.

    Mind that lyrics are shown in video caption region, so that
    if you take too much region for lyrics, video size will be reduced.

  3. I tried this and could not get the change in Caption Height to save.

    Didn't help me.

  4. I tried again and needed to hit the F5 button to update and this saved it.

    Also, maximum increase to 199. Thanks Niff!

    Still not what I want, but better than only 4 lines of text.

    Thanks a lot for this tip I was also looking for.
    For me (WMP 11 under Win XP SP3),
    the key works well for enlarging the lyrics zone instead of vizualisations :
    I put the CaptionHeight value at 500 in DECIMAL (seems no more possible),
    and lyrics songs take now almost the whole window for reading :)
