    Browse Fullscreen

    I somehow managed to put my IE6 browser in some sort of alternate full screen mode. See the screen shot below.

    a) What is this called?

    Look at View/Fullscreen. F11 will switch between full screen and normal.

    That does it. Thanks. I was hitting some keys by accident - not the F11 - to get into full screen mode. Oh well.

    ..to answer question a) it's called Kiosk Mode.
    Useful on occasion if you have a 3-row deep task-bar, as I do.

    Ah, Kiosk Mode. I'll tuck that away between two seldom fired synapses.

    Then use F10 and the arrow keys to get the menus items to show up without dropping the main menu. Woody did a thing on keyboard shortcuts a while back and I've been experimenting ever since. Doesn't take much to amuse some people <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Well, you just put it wherever you like, my boy. However, the name is used on occasion by MS etc. and it might be as well to know what they're on about when they do.

    ...according to my way of judging the cyber world, its occupants are as old as their userpics. Smilies are merely a reflection of a temporary mood. I was feeling a little grey last night...

    ...you cheeky young whelp!! Dinosaurs didn't come into it until 200million years after me. I'm a carnivorous amphibian with a bit of primitive reptile mixed in - and with a temperament to match. And it's only 'cos England just beat Denmark out of sight to get to the World Cup Quarter Finals that I'm letting you off lightly. I don't always live up to my nic...
