Description from extension meta

Adds a simple fullscreen button, plus toggle via the context menu.

Image from store Toggle Fullscreen
Description from store Add a full screen ⛶ button, plus a toggle within the (right-click) context menu, so that the window state may be changed (without resorting to the keyboard, i.e. F11, or the built-in Ⓧ broken dropdown button in the current GUI). This extension provides the additional benefit of properly preserving the window's prior state upon exiting full-screen mode. 2017 Update: Chrome officially added their own context menu item that reads "Exit full screen ... F11", once already in full-screen mode. Ironically, their official update still does not function properly, as it does not restore the window state to the state it was in prior to entering full-screen mode. Therefore, please take care to distinguish between the two. The correct button to use, in order for this extension to provide the expected behavior, is the one that reads "⛶ ⊤oggle Fullscreen", (i.e. the context menu item that this extension creates).

  • (2022-06-14) Gareth: Needs fullscreen to window feature.
  • (2022-02-18) Азамат Таршхоев: Калич какой-то! Полноэкранный режим без кнопок/жестов навигации. Для навигации нужно возвращаться в обычный. Так при обратном переходе еще и сам хром на пол экрана становится.
  • (2022-02-09) EiriksvinZ: Simple, elegant, useful. The 3 best qualities of any extension. Now I've got one click to fullscreen my Chrome. This one will be staying.
  • (2022-01-17) bloodys spammers: Not working on YANDEX MOBILE (Chromium). Please test and fix so bottom bars are hidden. ❤️
  • (2021-11-16) Abdullah Ba’essa: Amazing extension but there is a small thing should be fixed .. whenever I exit the fullscreen the entire window becomes minimized and I have to maximize everytime.
  • (2021-05-14) Michael: When you exit full-screen, the window is resized from its previous position
  • (2020-12-21) ASMR Retrofilm: it's work for me! I'm using a Chrome browser on my MacBook. It's good app!
  • (2020-11-27) Dexter Morgen: It does full screen but: Problem: after (F11) it does minimise the window. It´s annoying to maximise the window again. I want hide the frame of window and bookmark bar without to use my keyboard (it´s a compact one: need to wake it up first then press "fn+F11"). There is another app, which does full screen but does´t minimise the window after.
  • (2020-09-16) Rishaan kotian: I love this extension. On some sites where fullscreen doesn't work it makes it work and to exit fullscreen, you can eighter click ESC or right-click then click exit fullscreen.
  • (2020-09-04) Bill Davis: I thought this would be the answer because I like to put my keyboard aside and read long stories in html, and it's a hassle to have to pick up my keyboard to go to full screen. I would read long pages in html and when the story got toward the middle and lower end of the story, whenever I used it it would lose my place. I'd engage full screen and it would change, but after a second the screen would split and I'd be looking at place farther down in my story. If I was far down enough the screen would simply go all the way to the bottom of the page. Then I'd have to try and remember some word phrase to search for to find my way back. The stories were usually made with Calibre, reading with Brave browser on a Windows 7 PC. I'm going to uninstall it.
  • (2020-08-28) A O: simple and does what it says, coo
  • (2020-01-01) Josh Chappell: It works, and that's important. Better than Chromes inbuilt full-screen exit button, as others have noted in their reviews. I wanted a full-screen option in Chrome which didn't rely upon f-11, because on my PC I have to toggle between using f keys as usual or using them as their context markers show (most important is that sound controls and full-screen controls need an extra keyboard shortcut to toggle between, which isn't ideal).
  • (2019-11-23) Robert Perry: Perfect. Does exactly what it claims to do and nothing more: "Adds a simple fullscreen button, plus toggle via the context menu".
  • (2018-12-26) aione: 喜欢
  • (2018-12-23) John Thimakis: Works well... EXCEPT when your window is maximised and you toggle [ ] the fullscreen button it goes into fullscreen ok but when you toggle it again (by pressing F11 or the X when pushing the mouse to the top of the screen) in order to return to the maximised window, it sends it to the RESTORE state and not the maximised window state that it started from. So it doesn't exactly replicate the F11 function key operation. I just wanted a clickable on screen button that would exactly simulate the F11 key.
  • (2018-11-07) John: Excellent, simple, and does not access personal information.
  • (2018-11-05) Sebastian Mocny: Exactly what I've needed for years! My chromebook's fullscreen button has been broken, and the main reason I stopped using it. Thank you for the utility!
  • (2018-08-23) Aaron Wood: Exactly what I was looking for. Just wanted a button to add to my tool bar. No ads, no "fancy" features and no special permissions. Does what I want and nothing that I don't.
  • (2018-06-28) Anita Nikolic (Ana): Works as described! I am satisfied! ♥
  • (2018-03-22) Star Hopes: not what i was looking for at all. and makes my screen look strange.
  • (2018-03-17) George Coulouris: Outstanding! Thank you for resolving this problem which is even more evident on the chromebooks that convert to tablet format (making the keyboard unavailable).
  • (2018-01-08) Fábio Inácio Bernardo: ★★★★★ This is just perfect! The context menu button rocks! ★★★★★
  • (2017-12-30) Oleg Pavlov: то что искал. нажал кнопку и фуллскрин.потом правая мыши и там строка как вернуться ...всё выполняется одной мышкой. Благодарю!
  • (2017-12-25) радужница радужница: СУПЕР! СПАСИБО! SUPER! THANK YOU!
  • (2017-07-09) Robo Kop: 3/5 Stars because while this extension works, once full screen mode is reverted back to maximized, the entire browser size becomes less than maximized. Any way to stop that from happening?
  • (2017-04-07) Diogo Casado: This is useful for pages that won't override the context menu functionality. For Amazon Kindle web reader for example, this just won't work since they override it.
  • (2017-04-05) Дмитрий Голик: Всё замечательно, кроме одного - дичайше выбешивает псевдографика на месте буквы Т.
  • (2017-01-25) P. Emanuel Martins: Excellent, very useful!
  • (2017-01-14) Belo Sol: Nice and light, no bloat, at 16.67KiB. It does what I want, no need for more options. @Sebastian (your message lacks a reply link ..??) There is no button to exit fullscreen mode. You have to open (right-click) the Context Menu, then select '[ ] Toggle Fullscreen', then left-click.
  • (2016-10-03) Harshath JR: This fixes a bug in chrome as of today - it is impossible to exit Fullscreen unless you have a keyboard - something lacking in touchscreen devices (or even regular laptops running in laptop mode)
  • (2016-09-21) Ugur: I am waiting this very simple but super useful extension for long time Thanks :)
  • (2016-08-29) Robbie Smith: Better than similar extensions in the web store.
  • (2016-08-07) Steve Revier: Finally! A toggle fullscreen option in the context (right click) menu! Thanks!
  • (2016-08-04) Anuj Jain: Nice, saw your link on the chromium forum. Love the extension. Its great for my tablet.
  • (2016-08-03) Stephen S: Exactly what I was looking for... thanks for updating and fixing bug. 5 stars!
  • (2016-07-30) Hugo Moors: excellent extension for Surface Pro tablets!
  • (2016-07-26) Jon Brown: Life saver! I have a laptop (that came with Chrome OS) that does not have an F11 key - so without this extension I cannot exit fullscreen mode. Thanks! Come on Google, fix the real problem - just add Exit Fullscreen as a right-mouse click option.
  • (2016-07-06) John Hüttmann: Tiny and useful extension. But when i close chrome and restart it, the option in the context menu isn't available anymore.
