Finding WMP on a Two Screen Laptop

I have a laptop that I use for presentations with a projector. I set up
a PC screen/display that's visible on the projection screen with
whatever is showing on WMP. If I happen to turn off the projector and
turn off the PC, how do I gain access to WMP to manipulate it into the
single normal laptop screen after rebooting without the projector? Will
killing it and then firing it up again do it? I get the impression it
won't from experience with another machine with two screens/displays and
no projector use.

My experience is when Windows boots up, it will try to use the same
display as it used last time. Although if it isn't connected, Windows
will try another display to use instead. If you have it plugged into the
projector (even if it is powered off), Windows will likely see it as it
is there. Although unplugging the video cable from the machine, it
should see it isn't there and you should be fine.
