Description from extension meta

Changes fullscreen buttons to go into a popup. Works for every website that uses fullscreen, including Youtube, Vimeo, Netflix

Image from store Windowed - floating Youtube/every website
Description from store Changes fullscreen buttons so they will put a window around the fullscreen app. This allows you to put a Youtube video about a subject next to the paper you are writing or watch a show on Netflix while chatting. This extension will not reload the video you are watching, nor use some custom controls: it puts the website in its own fullscreen mode. Now also supports Picture-in-Picture mode when fullscreening a video, but this takes away the websites video controls. --- This extension requires "Read sites data" permission to function, but you can right-click the extension icon, click "This Can Read and Change Site Data" and enable it only for websites that you are comfortable with. Also the source is open, so you can read that no data is actually read or changed by this extension :) --- It will present you with a small menu when you click fullscreen, so you can choose to go fullscreen or windowed. Some of the website confirmed to work: - Youtube - Netflix - Twitch - Vimeo - NFL Gamepass - Facebook - Most other websites... Does not work on - Flash videos (these are outside of the scope of browser extensions, I tried) - Videos with native html controls (as they use native fullscreen, not javascript fullscreen) It is possible there are websites where this does not work, even though they are not flash. If you happen to find one, please let me know! :) Firefox extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/addon/windowed/ Source code: https://github.com/dralletje/windowed 🤨 🤩 🤤 🧛🏻‍♂️ 🦄 Michiel Dral

  • (2023-10-23) Danny: I'm only rating this so low becaue while on many sites it works fantastically, YOUTUBE of all sites seems to struggle to allow the WINDOWED option, much rather opting for Fullscreen even after MANUALLY picking Windowed.
  • (2023-10-18) Ian Harvey: Just what I needed to watch youtube my way, without all the accompanying nonsense. AKA full screen in a window.
  • (2023-10-17) ryanzeus31: This help me from youtube fullscreen framedrop/lag bug on chrome, maximize windowed is really help and now I get smooth 60fps and no more framedrop. btw, even I can hide win10 taskbar but the titlebar is still there 😂, so yeah this is the best work around for now, thank you.
  • (2023-10-14) Jay Dublin: Works great on most Sites, on some sites the windowed feature dosent work it just full screens, can anyone help with this. also in windowed something shows site assets behind or at the side of the video. is there a list of supported sites? will vote 5 stars if i cant fix this
  • (2023-10-11) Naru Hinn: this is the best, simple as that
  • (2023-10-08) Luc Nanquette: Perfect! Just what I was looking for. To be honest, this should be standard in Chrome.
  • (2023-09-16) Andras: this is acttually EXCELLENT !! Done really well and perfect for 49" widescren.
  • (2023-09-11) Gary: Works GREAT for making videos "full screen" on 4 windows at once on the same screen. I'm going have to get used to the extra click after a normal full screen double click but that's totally worth it.
  • (2023-08-22) Iriaxi Torres: This is exactly what I was looking for. A pop up that will stay on top of my other windows.
  • (2023-08-08) Matthew B: First one of many to actually fill a window with a video like advertised
  • (2023-07-26) jayca Chou: 非常好的一个插件,找了几十个终于找到一个可以有控制栏的小窗口插件,唯一唯一可惜的一点就是没有窗口置顶一键关闭开启功能,就差这一个啊
  • (2023-07-03) Tom CHEN: perfect app for ultrawide screen!!! You can use full screen for half screen now with this addin
  • (2023-07-01) Abhay Ranganath: Allows mutiple options to show fullscreen content. Works great
  • (2023-06-29) sonatine: Before I found this, I'd gone into a near manic episode trying to find a replacement for my old in-browser full screen addon, which stopped working. This is the only one I've found which is convenient and does exactly what I want it to do without too many additional UI/UX frills.
  • (2023-06-28) José Rafael da Silva Carnaúba: working
  • (2023-06-25) Jim Hendry: Does exactly what I needed. Used to be able to get video sites to use the whole window when using i3 but sway does not support not telling the window it is no longer fullscreened. This app gets videos to use the entire window without any status bars, comments, controls, etc. taking up space.
  • (2023-06-02) Tulio Gontijo: 100% funcional!!
  • (2023-06-01) Lucas Sequeira: Perfect extension!
  • (2023-05-30) Steven Olson: Works for most video sites, including YouTube, Twitch, and Vimeo. Doesn't work for Microsoft Build videos though unfortunately https://build.microsoft.com/en-US/sessions/.
  • (2023-05-09) sleepyhead: Very useful, i have been looking for this function for about a year.

  • (2023-04-13) 1hp: Thanks so much. This allows for window snapping a youtube video whereas all PiP extensions do not allow this functionality. You are incredible. Thank you a ton.
  • (2023-04-03) Stephen B: pretty sure this doesnt work anymore
  • (2023-03-18) K. Klein: Amazing solution for ultrawide screens to get multiple full screens!
  • (2023-03-14) Gustavo “Cretino” Ladeira: It keeps asking me "Fullscreen on <website> should always: Ask, Windowed, In-Window, Fullscreen; PiP (if possible)." There's no ok button, clicking Enter won't accept your choice... And nothing happens.
  • (2023-02-14) The Potato: It works but if we wanted a window extension, there's a very high chance that we will need "always on top" as well. I was hoping to find a one click alternative instead of copy pasting links to VLC everytime.
  • (2023-02-11) Geoff Atlanta: Absolutely excellent. I've been wanting this forever.
  • (2023-02-07) Justin Hernandez: Best extension for viewing videos! Windowed video and pip are the perfect options.
  • (2023-01-26) Able Goodman: EXACTLY what i wanted!!! Thanks
  • (2023-01-14) Richard Lievesley: Works everywhere even wcostream! I love this extension, especially how you can make any website allow you to use picture-in-picture
  • (2023-01-12) Kad: works perfectly on Udemy! Thanks dev!
  • (2023-01-11) Damien: You can just get Youtube app on Mincrosft store
  • (2022-12-26) Riccardo Gavotti: Works well
  • (2022-12-24) Jônatas Moreira: Testei diversos, mas esse foi o mais completo que encontrei. Parabéns! Gostaria que tivesse somente uma função para ficar perfeito. A opção de travar a janela no PiP para não ficar arrastando sempre que passo o Mouse sobre a janela. Seria possível adicionar essa função? Assim eu que poderia jogar e assistir algo sem ficar clicando na janela PiP todo instante. Eu usava uma outra extensão com essa função, mas ela parou de funcionar e não tenho encontrado outra semelhante.
  • (2022-12-22) Matt Alexander: One of my favorite extensions. It just works. Whereever you had a full screen key before, now you can 1. Fill the current screen with the video, 2. Create a new window and fill that, 3. Use the Picture-to-Picture feature (not sure why you'd need to) 4. Normal full screen.
  • (2022-12-13) Richard Sabo: Thanks so much. Tried many similar addons. Only this one allows for scrolling in "In window" mode.
  • (2022-12-10) Anthony Serrano: Literally been searching days for a solution like this. Have an ultra wide monitor but some video sites have a small player with the full screen option. I'm exclusively only using this for video content, which my browser hiccupped the other day and allowed a video to go full screen within the browser window. For the life of me I haven't been able to replicate it but I went searching since I knew it was possible... but this extension does exactly what I need. Full screen within browser window so it's not eating up my entire ultrawide monitor. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
  • (2022-10-13) Aquiles Esquivel Madrazo: Justo lo que buscaba. Me encantó. Puedo hacer mis trabajos y ver streamings a la vez sin tener que cambiar y cambiar de pestaña con el típico Alt+tab. Gracias!
  • (2022-09-29) Alwin Crasto: The capability this extension unlocks is great, however, it needs a few more configuration options to make for a convenient browsing experience. 1) We should be able to set what the default action for every website should be. Right now this decision is made for us and set to "Ask" and that's not what I want the normal behaviour to be for a new website that I visit, I want the default to be "Fullscreen". Having to make an extra click inside the Ask window is an inconvenience. 2) We really need the ability to set keyboard shortcuts for the 5 different target options. That way if I visit a new website and am about to play the video, I could first choose my target as "Windowed" by pressing a keyboard shortcut like "Ctrl+W" (which would have been configured by me in the extension's settings) and then I could play the video and double click inside it to have it open up in a dedicated window.
  • (2022-09-27) Christian Vos: Just what a needed to prevent fullscreen youtube taking over my 49" widescreen. Thanks !
  • (2022-09-21) Jawad Qureshi: Great extension since there are no alternatives to make a "windowed fullscreen" Sometimes chrome crashes with the error message "out of memory" because of this extenstions When you refresh the page the problem is usually solved If there is anyone having the same issue or an idea about how to solve this please let me know
  • (2022-09-19) Michaelan: Works very well on most popular websites (Youtube, Twitch), but recently on others it will cause constant extreme cpu usage under certain conditions (Ponopto with many videos embedded, Canvas with PDF files embedded). I spent hours tracking down why my CPU usage was extremely high when just browsing, it all came down to this extension. Sad that I will not be able to use it anymore, this was really a treat to use when it worked. Maybe this is an issue with chromium (version 105), maybe the extension, IDK.
  • (2022-09-12) Juan Manuel Flaherty: Wow, I didn't expect it to work so well. It's exactly what I was looking for.
  • (2022-03-15) AMO Productions Testing Facility: Honestly an amazing extension if you use cloud gaming websites (Stadia and Geforce Now as an example) Both forces games into a fullscreen you can't change, unless you got this extension and use window mode, it just makes what ya want, a resizable window witch allows you to do other stuff while playing :3
  • (2022-02-24) HRs: works flawlessly for the past years but now PIP doesn't work on windows 11
  • (2022-02-19) Ruth: Amazing! It works great when you want to have a split on your computer screen. I like having the function of 2 fullscreens on the Mac, and this basically gives that on Windows :)
  • (2022-02-06) daydreaming5: 잘 됩니다.
  • (2022-02-03) Rx Foo: good. but I suggest, you also put the navigation slider in it too. I cant move at any time that I like in the video.

  • (2023-11-15, v:28) Jon Erik Kvamme: cant get it to work
    Hi, just curious. After installing the plug in I'm just supposed to press F11, right? It just goes to normal full screen mode so not sure why its not working. Even YouTube. I'm using Chrome Version 119.0.6045.124 (Official Build) (64-bit) Thanks, Jon Erik
  • (2023-10-05, v:28) Heber Cruz: not working
    Everything was working fine yesterday, but today its not. Still works in firefox
  • (2023-08-13, v:28) Chris Mendoza: windowed mode not working correctly
    Hi, from viewing the preview on the web store, i was under the impression that when the extension is set to "in-window" the tabs and search bar shouldn't be visible. However, i am experiencing the opposite. Is this something I'm misinterpreting or is it a problem with my browser?
  • (2023-02-01, v:28) Victoria Besarab: "Windowed" Mode not working on YouTube
    on YouTube, if selecting "Windowed" - both ways, on native "full-screen" button of the player, or by clicking on the app's icon at the extension toolbar - the video is always launched standard full-screen anyway. Any other option - "In Window", "PiP" - works as expected. but "Windowed" - when you need the video to pop-out as a separate window - not working, it opens classic full-screen view.
  • (2022-11-27, v:28) ed vanderbie: screen flickering
    screen flickering when multiple windows running video - seems to apply to all websites / video - i see the issue when there is 1,2, or 3 windows or any number of windows - all monitors - main monitor it first appeared on, then second, then third ... not sure what it could be
  • (2022-07-08, v:28) Jan Mark: Caps Lock bug
    It doesn't work when Caps Lock is activated, and the extension is set to "Ask". The prompt to choose how the windows should display appears and dissapears instantaneously.
  • (2022-06-11, v:28) Aapo Ala-Kolu: PWA goes back to normal browser
    Hi, When I installed youtube as PWA and used any other mode than fullscreen when i come back from the video it opens normal in Chrome and not in the PWA.
  • (2022-05-31, v:28) Piotr Wallis: Problem with subtitles
    Hi when i am using Picture in Picture my subtitles ar staying on the original site, but they ar missing in the window.
