Chrome Full Screen: How To Enable And Disable The Mode
Usually, when you use the Google Chrome web browser, you will see a few important bars above the web page you’re viewing. While these bars are important for major tasks, they can take up a part of your viewing space. To overcome this problem, video streaming services always offer a full-screen mode that lets you view content on the entire display instead of just a part. The good news is, there is a similar mode in Google Chrome, which is often known as Chrome full screen.
In the web browser, you can eliminate distractions as you are browsing the internet by hiding all the other programs currently running. The mode also hides the taskbar and dock at the bottom of the screen, which means you cannot open the programs once you are in the full-screen mode.
In this post, we will show you how to activate this mode in the Google Chrome browser.
