Quick Tip: Full Screen Mode in Chrome

It may be helpful to view apps, presentations, videos, or other items using the full screen (no tabs, menu bars, etc.). This can be especially helpful when working on a smaller screen, where every pixel has high visual value. It may also be helpful when presenting a website, document, or other content through an interactive board, projector, or large monitor. The below options will engage or exit full screen mode in Google's Chrome browser.

To engage full screen mode:
  • Press F11 (PC), located on the top row of the keyboard.
  • Press the 3 dots below the x in the upper right corner.
  • Choose the full screen icon, located at the right end of the Zoom options.
  • Press the Full Screen Key (Chromebook), located on the top row of the keyboard.

To exit full screen mode:
  • Press the Escape key (top left corner of the keyboard).
  • Move cursor to top of screen, go to View, choose Exit Full screen.
  • Press the Full Screen Key (Chromebook), located on the top row of the keyboard.
  • Press F11 (PC), located on the top row on the keyboard.
  • Alternate-F4 (PC). Note that this will actually close the Chrome window completely.
