Make your web browser go to full-screen mode

This article first appeared on October 31st, 2012.


One of the great things about surfing the web on an iPad or an Android tablet is that you can look at your favourite websites in full screen. The good news, if you use Windows, is you can do the same thing on your desktop PC.


Just press the “F11” key and you’ll notice your web browser switches automatically to full-screen. When you want your computer to go back to normal, press “F11” again.


The best thing about this trick is that it will work regardless of whether you use Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer as your web browser.
