In this post, you’ll see two ways to enable or disable full-screen mode on the Microsoft Edge browser. Pick the one you like.
I’m using Windows 11 PC here. Let’s start.
How to Enable or Disable Edge Full-Screen Mode using Local Group Policy Editor
Launch local group policy editor.
Navigate to the Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge.
Then double-click “Allow full screen mode” in the right pane.
Select Enabled or Not Configured if you want to enable full-screen mode. To disable the full-screen mode, choose Disabled.
Hit the OK button.
How to Enable or Disable Edge Full-Screen Mode using Registry Editor
To disable, follow these steps:
Open Registry Editor. I suggest a Registry backup before proceeding.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft > Edge.
If you don’t see the Edge key mentioned above, you need to create it, and here’s how: Right-click on the Microsoft key and select New > Key. Type Edge and then press Enter key.
Right-click on the blank space in the right pane.
Select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Type FullscreenAllowed and then hit the Enter key.
Note: To enable, replace 0 with 1 in the Value data field of the DWORD and then hit the OK button. Or delete the DWORD you created earlier.
Thanks for reading.
