Thread: IE6 shortcuts

    Sometimes when I type quickly in forums I make typos and hit *something* that causes the IE window to lose the file/edit/view/etc bars and goes into a full screen kind of mode.

    I know this sounds silly but I don't know which keys to hit in order to make IE go back to normal. :cry:

    See picture below - this is what the top of IE looks like once I've pressed the mystery keys.

    Looks like the Full Screen mode to me - try F11

    Agreed. F11 should take care of your problem. I've hit it before by accident and it looks exactly like your picture.

    Yeps its the top of the screen thats relevant.. in the full screen mode there's nothing on the rest of the screen apart from the webpage. I didn't really want the dial-up guys to have to download the whole thing ;)

    when you make typos...how come you hit F11? :?:
    I mean Fn keys are quite far away from the keys you might be using to write text...how come you hit them?
    there isn't another shortcut to "Full Screen", right?

    Holding the Alt key then typing V then F will take you to Full Screen mode too.

    But I too am curious as to the layout of this keyboard:laugh:
    :confused:

    is there a shortcut to putting IE in kiosk mode - or is that even similar to full screen:?:
    i know you can start IE in kiosk mode, but not sure if you can do it midstream

    I think I might hit F11 shortly after typos whilst aiming for the backspace key :cool:

    What's kiosk mode?

    Is there a mod to swap the position of the backspace and space keys.........'cause that would be real handy for me too?:rolleyes:
