Turn on full-screen mode and closed captions in videos on the Windows website

Full-screen mode enlarges a video to fill your entire computer screen. This can make the video easier to see.

Closed captions let you read the words that are spoken in a video. To watch a video with closed captions, you’ll first need to turn on full-screen mode.
