We are working on a touch screen booth. Thanks in advance 0 Ivan JP November 29, 2017 03:43 Press ctrl+alt+break 0 mcgeneroso November 29, 2017 04:16 Press ctrl+alt+break Not working 0 mcgeneroso November 29, 2017 04:19 I think the best solution to this is extended monitor 0 Ivan JP November 29, 2017 06:18 Are you pressing them all the same time? Well, ctrl+alt+break works for me. Either esc or F11 does not. 0 mcgeneroso November 29, 2017 06:29 Yes Ivan JP 0 Ewa H April 25, 2018 06:21 Hello, I have a problem with a full screen, after using the F11 a thin frame appears around which sets the size of the monitor, did you have such a problem? 1 BGBI July 22, 2020 18:59 I also got stuck in fullscreen mode in Windows 10. None of the suggestions here did the trick. I eventually was able to exit with Windows Key + Down Arrow (minimize app). If you don't have the ability to move the window with the title bar, try entering full screen again and use that key combo again. Hope that helps. Please sign in to leave a comment.
