Full Screen Mode is also known as Presentation Mode

Full-Screen mode displays only the contents of the document

  • all other window decorations are not displayed in this mode
    • menus
    • sroll bars
    • status bar at bottom of screen

The mode is very useful when using a projector

  • enlarges displayed object somewhat
  • does not display extraneous window decorations

Essential navigation tools, PgUp, PgDn, mouse clicks continue having their usual effect in Full-Screen mode

Two means are often available for entering Prsentation Mode

  • click on the Presentation Mode icon
  • or access from the menu
-> View -> Presentation Mode 
  • alternatively some Apps use
-> Slide Show

The generally used method of exiting Full Screen Mode and returning to normal display is to press ESC key.

Many recent verions of Apps have Full-Screen Mode, including

  • LibreOffice
  • Firefox
  • PDF readers

Full-Screen Mode is at its most effective when the document has been prepared in Landscape orientation
