Use Google Chrome Full Screen

May 28, 2010 - 10 Comments

By hitting a simple keystroke you can put Google Chrome into full screen mode. No, it doesn’t just resize your window, it actually takes the currently active web page and resizes it to fit the entire screen surface – no titlebar, no address bar, nothing, just a web page.

To enter into Chromes full screen mode, hit Command+Shift+F

You can exit full screen mode by hitting the keystroke again.

      That’s because these are the commands for OS X…not Windows.

      For Windows, just press F11 to enter and exit fullscreen with your browsers.

    You can exit full screen by hitting command-shift-F…sort of. You get the chrome tabs and menu back, but you don’t get the Mac menu or icons on the bottom.

    Aha! After extensive research (looking at another article), I read that someone stumbled on the solution. Move the mouse up off the top of the screen, and the Mac menu appears. You can then hit the exit full screen icon at the right and you’re back in safe waters.
