Watching Amazon Prime video using PC and the video control bar won’t go away? Move cursor to top of screen.

I rented a movie on Amazon Prime, connected my PC to a flat screen TV using an HDMI cable, then watched the first portion of the movie with bottom sixth the of the screen obscured by the progress bar.

After several Google searches I was finally able to find this tip (apparently this functionality is intuitive and requires no documentation?):

I had the same problem and it was driving me crazy. I thought I was moving my mouse out of the way by moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen. Then I tried moving it to the top of the screen and that did the trick.
