When you view an episode in the Flash player on a Windows tablet, and don't have a mouse or keyboard available, it's pretty hard to leave the fullscreen view. Especially after the episode ends and you get suggestions for things to watch next.

Two suggestions to make the Flash player UI more usable on touch-only devices:

1. Have the video status bar permanently visible when video is paused. That makes it easier to hit the buttons, otherwise you can't be sure where to tap since the bar disappears very quickly.

2. Add a "leave fullscreen" button to the end-screen.

A completely different alternative would be an app for Windows 10

Either one would be fine with me. I've found it exceedingly annoying.

Crunchyroll really should add this. A button makes the most sense since it supports touch devices and mouse. Another alternative would be double-click to exit fullscreen, but that only makes sense for mouse, not as much for touch input.

After an episode ends, it's annoying to have to hit the Escape button on the keyboard to regain control of my computer. Yes, it is extra work to get the keyboard when I am sitting on my couch, using Crunchyroll on my living room PC, and the keyboard is not always sitting directly in front of me.

A non-solution is clicking a random show on the recommendations list, or hitting the Replay button in order to get the video playing (and therefore a clickable fullscreen button), since those actions mess with my watch history.
