I am using Ubuntu 12.04. My Skype window became full screen and I can't find any way to re-size it.

Here is a link for how my deskTop look like (this is the full desktop) I can't see anything just this :(

Did you try the Esc button on the keyboard? –  user68186 Jan 9 '13 at 19:16
Yes, didn't solve it, –  amr osama Jan 9 '13 at 19:52
Try moving the mouse. It should reveal various button at the bottom of the screen. The one on the far right should be to toggle full screen mode. –  user68186 Jan 9 '13 at 20:09
the mouse is always in the normal point even when I go to the edges –  amr osama Jan 10 '13 at 6:23
