Questions tagged [fullscreen]

"Full screen view" enables a computer user to see the contents of a file, video or web content without tool bars, menu bars and the status bar. In most videos on the web, there is a button to select "full-screen" and when this mode is selected the video plays over the monitor fully with no tool bars or menu bars, even the system tray will not be visible. Mostly, to leave the "full-screen", Escape key is used.
