How to Obtain a Full Screen Window on a Web Browser


Running your browser in full-screen mode is a great way to save screen-space and operate in an uncluttered environment. Modern browsers can enable full-screen mode with a simple hot-key press.

PC Browsers

  • Identify which browser you are using. Popular browsers include Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Mozilla's Firefox and Opera Software's Opera.

  • Press F11 in your browser to enable full screen mode.

  • Alternatively, you may go to the "view" menu and select "Full Screen" mode.

Mac Browsers

  • Command+click on the Safari icon and select "Show Contents."

  • Click "Add Item" and add a string that sasy "application UI presentation mode" and set its value to"all suppressed."

  • Add a bookmarklet with this Javascript javascript:self.resizeTo(screen.availWidth,screen.availHeight). This will be your "zooming" bookmarklet and you can title it as such.

  • Add another bookmarklet with this Javascript: javascript:self.resizeTo(900,600);window.moveTo(200,200). This will be your "re-sizing" bookmarklet and you can title it as such.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you are using dual monitors, you can run a full-screen window in one monitor and a regular window in another.
  • Full-screen mode is a great way to maximize screen space on smaller netbooks.
  • Some Firefox and Opera extensions and themes will not run in full-screen mode. Consult the documentation for details.
  • Full-screen mode is excellent for running presentations on a projector, as it hides your taskbar.
