You can open and close full-screen mode in Google Chrome using keyboard shortcuts or the browser controls. In full-screen mode, the browser controls are hidden, but the menu can be reactivated by hovering over the appropriate location on your computer. This helps when you're viewing movies, graphics and websites that make use of the entire browser area. Learning the shortcuts for entering and leaving full-screen mode can help you work more efficiently with Web pages.
