1. Toggle Full Screen Mode

This tutorial is only intended for users running the Internet Explorer 9 Web browser on Windows operating systems.

IE9 gives you the ability to view Web pages in full screen mode, hiding all elements other than the main browser window itself. This includes tabs and toolbars among other items. Full screen mode can be toggled on and off in just a few easy steps.

First, open your IE9 browser. Click on the "gear" icon, located in the upper right hand corner of your browser window. When the drop-down menu appears, select the option labeled File. When the sub-menu appears, click on Full screen.

Please note that you can use the following keyboard shortcut in lieu of clicking the aforementioned menu item: F11. Your browser should now be in full screen mode, as shown in the example above. To disable full screen mode and return to your standard IE9 window, simply press the F11 key.
