Hi,

Some computers use F11 or other F-keys primarily for other purposes. So if you are in a full screen mode and you just directly press F11, you will still stay in full screen mode. But it may depend on PC brand, operating system, keyboard layout or other regional settings.

Microsoft Edge works a bit different than Chrome, but you can easily exit full screen mode in case of both web browsers, because there are several ways how to do it.

Microsoft Edge

1. Move mouse to the top of the screen, to show the menu bar. Click on the three dots and then click on the Arrows in Zoom section:

2. Other option is to check, if you have the Function key on the bottom left side on your keyboard (Fn). If yes, press Fn + F11

Chrome

1. Check if you have the Function key on the bottom left side on your keyboard (Fn). If yes, press Fn + F11

2. Other option is to press Alt key, to show the menu bar. Click on the three dots and then click on the Frame in Zoom section.
