We all like a little more real estate when working on a computer, especially when browsing the web. Why? Because scrolling…well isn’t efficient. One problem, chrome decided I should never leave Full Screen mode! That creates a real problem as everything but the page content is “above the fold” so to speak. Rather than discontinue using chrome I took a few minutes and found a fix.
rm -rf ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Preferences
You could make a backup copy (I did) or edit the file, but I found no loss of “preference” so decided to post the easy version. Once I was done I started Chrome back up and it was back to me having control of my Full Screen experience. Perhaps Google is trying to build in some AI to guess which mode we want, let’s hope not.
