This article explains how to use full-screen mode on Google Chrome for Windows and macOS.
Enable and Disable Chrome Full-Screen Mode in macOS
For Chrome on macOS, in the upper-left corner of Chrome, select the green circle to go to full-screen mode, and select it again to return to the full-size screen.
There are two other options to activate full-screen mode:
- From the menu bar, select View > Enter Full Screen .
- Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Command + F .
To exit full-screen mode, repeat this process.
Enable and Disable Full-Screen Mode in Chrome for Windows
The quickest way to get Chrome in full-screen mode in Windows is to press F11 on the keyboard. The other way is through the Chrome menu:
In the upper-right corner of Chrome, select the menu (three-dot) icon.
In the Zoom section, select the square icon on the right.
To return to the standard view, press F11 or hover near the top of the screen and select the X button that appears.
Google Chrome full-screen mode hides distractions on your desktop, including the bookmarks bar, menu buttons, open tabs, and the operating system clock and taskbar. When you use full-screen mode, Chrome occupies all the space on the screen.
How to Zoom In and Out in Chrome
Full-screen mode displays more of the page, but it doesn't make the text larger. To make text larger, use the Zoom setting.
Go to Zoom and select + to enlarge the page contents or select - to reduce the size.
Alternatively, use keyboard shortcuts to modify the size of the page contents. Hold down the Ctrl key (or the Command key on a Mac) and press the plus or minus keys on the keyboard to zoom in and out, respectively.
If you want more screen space using the Chrome browser on an iPad, swipe up from the bottom of the page; this causes the toolbar to disappear, giving you more screen real estate. If you swipe down on the screen, the toolbar will reappear, and your screen will revert out of full-screen mode.
To clear the cache in Google Chrome , use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Del (Windows) or Command + Shift + Delete (Mac). Or, select Chrome's menu (three vertical dots) from the top-right and choose Settings > Advanced > Clear Browsing Data . Check Cached images and files and select Clear Data .
Favorites are called Bookmarks in Google Chrome. To bookmark a web page, go to the web page and select the Star in the address bar. Or, select menu (three dots) > Bookmarks > Bookmark This Tab .

Put chrome in presentation Mode, but not maximized
I'd like to put one window of chrome into "presentation mode" (no ui elements, omnibox, etc), but not maximized. Is that possible, and if, so, how? Chrome on Win 7 Pro.
- Is this for Google Slides? Other applications? – rahi Apr 22, 2015 at 10:48
- Actually for Pandora, but I've often wanted it for other applications. – Marc Apr 22, 2015 at 13:25
The Picture in Picture Viewer Google Chrome extension might do the job for you.
- Go to chrome://flags/#enable-panels and enable panels
- Relaunch Chrome
Assuming the web application you're using has an option to go full screen, or go into presentation mode
Navigate to a website of your choice
Activate the Picture in Picture Viewer extension
- This should open the website in a panel
From within the panel, toggle the presentation mode for the website you're on
(Optional) Resize the panel to suit your needs
- It still has the title bar, and f11 (presenttion mode) doens't appear to do anything, but it's 95% of what I wanted. Thanks!!! – Marc Apr 22, 2015 at 16:25
- Glad to hear, and you're right. The title bar persists and the F11 doesn't do anything. This extension works well for websites that have some option to trigger the full screen from the page itself. – rahi Apr 22, 2015 at 16:34

How to Use the Presenter View in Google Slides
Google Slides, like PowerPoint, has different presentation modes that can come in handy when you’re presenting and you want your slideshow to look smooth. Whether you’re looking for slides only, speaker notes or the Q&A feature, in this new Google Slides tutorial, you’ll learn about these and their respective settings. Ready? Then let’s explore the presenter view!
Types of presentation modes in Google Slides
Presenter view, start from beginning, present on another screen.
There are three presentation modes in Google Slides.
If you click the “Slideshow” button or press Ctrl/Cmd + F5, your presentation will start directly without any speaker notes. This is the most widely used and the simplest option.
Next to the “Slideshow” button, there’s a drop-down arrow. Click on it to see the different presentation modes:
In this mode, you’ll be able to see the speaker notes, check the timer and adjust other settings, such as questions from the audience. For more information about the speaker notes, please refer to this Google Slides tutorial .
To view the different tools, after clicking “Presenter View”, move your mouse to the lower left-hand corner of the screen. You’ll see the slide number, previous and next slide arrows and three dots. Click on the dots and here are your options:
Open speaker notes
This enables the speaker notes and makes them visible. If you click this button, you might exit fullscreen mode. To go back to fullscreen, press Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + F or click the “Fullscreen” button. For more information, please refer to this Google Slides tutorial .
Turn on the laser pointer
You’ll see a red dot on the screen, which you can move around to point out any element from your presentation.
Click this button (or press Ctrl+Shift+F) to enter or exit fullscreen mode.
Click this button to finish the presentation or just press Esc.
If you click on “Auto-play,” more options will appear: Click “Play” and the slides will advance automatically (by default, every two seconds, but there are other options available. You can also choose to play the slideshow on a loop).
If you have a mic set up, you can enable captions. Click the drop-down arrow to adjust the size of the text and its position on the screen.
If you click on “more”, you can enable the Audience Q&A panel by clicking on the first option that appears. For more information, please refer to this Google Slides tutorial .
More: Downloads, printing, info and options
Under the “More” tab, you can also choose different download formats for your slideshow or print it out. This tab also contains a handy list of keyboard shortcuts (if you prefer handling keys to using your mouse) and the possibility to report problems.
Your presentation will begin from the first slide (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + F5).
Your presentation will be shown on a different screen via a media display device, such as Chromecast. This option will be available only if there’s another screen available.
Now you’ve mastered the presenter view in Google Slides, which, with a bit of practice, will be a game-changer! Not only will it make you look like a presentation pro, but it will also streamline the process of nailing those crucial talking points. So go out there and strut your stuff – with presenter view on your side, you are unstoppable! And if you’ve found this tutorial helpful, check out more of them on our blog !
