I'm trapped in a party!

Is there a hotkey to recover normal rhythbox window mode (instead of whole-fullscreen)?

Or how to locate a config file of rhythmbox?

Have you tried pressing the F11 key?

A hotkey for switching between party mode is F11.

I had to terminate the rhythmbox process from gnome-system-monitor, then it started fullscreen - yet not covering Unity bar, launcher and window options. I was fine from there.

I've posted multiple answers today to find other folks also answered at more-or-less the same time. – K7AAY Jan 7 '14 at 23:23
Yeah... I don't mind anyway ;-) – Wilf Jan 7 '14 at 23:23

Hold down {Alt} to click and drag the window. When you see the menu bar, choose View and unclick Party Mode. If it is not set on, set it on, then unclick it.

Thanks. Too bad pressing Alt does not open Rhythmbox window options, but it opens Unity command field (window-related I guess). Alt holding doesn't make anything there, yet it works fine for other windows. I handled it another way. – Esamo Jan 7 '14 at 23:15
How? Inquiring minds want to know. – K7AAY Jan 7 '14 at 23:17
