I don't know the D750 but my with my D5 I can switch through the different display options with the multiselector up/down when in full image mode (not zoomed in or multiple pictures shown)

If it is not visible / selectable this way there is an option in the playback menu

thanks but ........

I did look to find the appropriate section of the manual ......... but frankly I hate looking there ....... everything is scattered about randomly with a hundred pages between different aspects of AF etc. ...... why I don't know ! .........

........ when anyone writes RTFM ........ I crouch down trembling, holding up my cross in fear and shielding my eyes with the other hand ........ normally I'm not religious .......... but like the drowning atheist ....... I prey for a floating straw nevertheless ..........

I'm grateful to you for asking the question and to the respondents for answering. I did not even know the D750 could do this. I have now set mine up also to show the focus point.

You can also see the focus point in NX Studio if you use that. As per the FM, it doesn't appear in the focus modes noted (AF-C/AF-A or without focus lock in AF-C)
