Maximizing screen real estate and immersing yourself in your current task or content can be easily achieved by using full screen mode on Google Chrome. But there may be instances where you need to exit full screen and return to regular viewing mode. This can be done in a few simple steps, which will be outlined in this tutorial.

Method 1: Using Keyboard Shortcuts

The simplest way to exit full screen mode in Google Chrome is by using a keyboard shortcut. On Windows and Linux, you can press F11 to toggle full screen mode on and off. On a Mac, you can press Control+Command+F.

Method 2: Using the Chrome Menu

If you prefer to use your mouse, you can also exit full screen mode through the Chrome menu.

  1. First, move your cursor to the top of your screen. The menu bar should appear.
  2. Next, click on the three-dot Chrome menu button located in the top right corner of the browser.
  3. In the drop-down menu that appears, look for the option that says “Zoom.”
  4. Hover over “Zoom,” and beside the zoom percentage, there should be a square icon. Click on this icon to exit full screen mode.

Method 3: Using the Escape Key

Another simple way to exit full screen mode in Chrome is by pressing the Escape key (ESC) on your keyboard. However, this does not always work, as some websites and applications disable the Escape key’s ability to exit full screen mode.


And that’s all there is to it! Whether you prefer keyboard shortcuts, mouse clicks, or the good old Escape key, exiting full screen mode in Google Chrome is a breeze. Now you can easily switch between full screen and regular viewing modes based on your needs and preferences.
