Resolved Question

Full Page Sizing

by soggypants7 / August 5, 2011 10:36 PM PDT

Is there any way that one can regulate the size of "FULL PAGE"? Instead of hunting for the little double arrow that is unseen in full page, is there some way to have it always showing? Thanks.

On applications that support Full Page,

the double arrow is always visible prior to going into full page.
If you want to enlarge the page manually, without going into full page, just grab hold of any corner of the window and the double arrow will appear and you can click and drag the window to whatever size you want.

I originally replied to you, mrmacfixit, but it seems to have been lost in cyberspace. My sincere apologies for not checking sooner.
I knew about dragging corners to enlarge a page, but was looking for a way to have Full Page while at the same time, having the double arrows showing while IN full page. Is that possible?
BTW, I'm using Mac OS X 10.7

I don't think that it is possible.

the double arrow icon is the method of getting into Full Page and once there, you don't need the double arrows.

Thanks, mrmacfixit. I guess I'll just have to live with it. It is too bad that the toolbar is hidden when in full page. Oh, well, that is life - ainsi va la vie.
Thanks again.

I just saw this and was messing around in Safari, Full Page, and found that if you put the cursor up to the top of the screen, the tool bar reappears! So does the Double Arrow!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
