Google Chrome gives you the ability to view Web pages in full screen mode, hiding all elements other than the main browser window itself. This includes tabs, toolbars, bookmarks bars, and the download/status bar. Full screen mode can be toggled on and off in just a few easy steps.
First, open your Google Chrome browser.
Click on the Chrome "wrench" icon, located in the upper right hand corner of your browser window. When the drop-down menu appears, select the choice labeled Full Screen.
Please note that you can use the following keyboard shortcut in lieu of clicking the aforementioned menu item: F11
Your browser should now be in full screen mode, as shown in the example above. To disable full screen mode and return to your standard Chrome window, simply press the F11 key.
Full screen mode and compact controls
If you've ever wanted more room to work in one of your documents, you can now free up some space by viewing them in full screen or compact controls mode. Here's how:
For compact controls, click the Hide the menus button on the right side of the toolbar. You can also go to the Viewmenu and select Compact controls or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+F.
For full screen mode, go to the View menu and select Full screen.
If you're in full screen mode, you can return to regular viewing mode by hitting the Esc or Escape key.
Google Docs will remember the view settings you've selected for your documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and drawings. For example, if you change your view setting to "Full screen" while working on a document and to "Compact controls" while working on a presentation, the next time you open or create a document or presentation, it will open in that app's most recent view mode ("Full screen" and "Compact controls," respectively).
Spreadsheets will remain in compact controls mode between sessions, but not in full screen mode.
