    Help stuck in MSE! 8th Oct 17 at 11:10 AM
    The cat has been on the keyboard

    I am on MSE site and its filling up the whole page, no toolbar showing at the top or bottom of screen.

    I know there will be a shortcut key for this but don't know what it is. I can't google it as can't get out of this screen.

    Thanks

    Try tapping the F11 key or the "esc" key.
    If that doesn't work, use the windows key:

    and get to Internet explorer or other web browser from there.

    Thank you I had already tried "esc"

    F11 worked

    I should have pressed windows key and googled, I didn't think of that

    Yes, it's called kiosk mode.
    It's used for terminals (kiosks) for example in McDonald's where you order your food.

    For the poster above, yes I suppose It can be described as full screen mode, if you like I can link to a Microsoft article calling it kiosk mode, but then I'd just be being a smart !!! wouldn't I

    I've tried finding references to 'kiosk mode' / F11, but it I've found so far is full screen/F11 and kiosk mode / -k
