F11 key won't enlarge to a full screen

I was always able to use the F11 key to get a full screen then I had some problems and my Verizon technical service fixed the problem but I don't know what they did and now when I use the F11 key, the screen gets a little larger but it is not a full screen.

Can you place your mouse on an open area of the screen you would like to enlarge, right click the mouse and see if Lock toolbars has a check mark next to it...If it does, remove the check mark. Then go to View and click on Full Screen...Hopefully that will enlarge the screen.

If it does, click on the F11 button and see if it then shrinks the screen and click on F11 again to see if it enlarges it...Providing it does both, your problem could now be resolved...Either way, post back here and let us know.

Make screen bigger


To zoom in on a website in your favorite browser, making the website appear bigger, follow these steps:

Using the keyboard and a mouse with a scroll wheel:
  • Hold down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and roll the mouse wheel up to zoom in, or down to zoom out.
Using only the keyboard:
  • Hold down the "Ctrl" key and press the "+" key to zoom in, or the "-" key to zoom out.
To make the browser full-screen, taking up the whole screen on your computer, press the "F11" key. Press the "F11" key again to exit full-screen mode.

I hope that helps you!

F11 doesn't work as fullscreen toggle for Windows 8


Have you tried the fn key (bottom left, next to ctrl key)?

On my HP laptop running Windows 8.1, pressing f11 mutes the speaker (as per the logo on the key top) and fn+f11 in IE & Firefox toggles full screen.

My f11 keys doesn't work and can't turn on my wireless.


i suspect your f11 key does work, try opening a web browser and while it is open press the f11 key if your browser goes full screen the f11 key works just press f11 again to return it to normal. Try pressing and holding the fn key and then press f11 that will switch your wireless on and off

How do I adjust web page to fit display screen


There is the Zoom option in the View menu if you are using IE. You can set it to 100%. With IE8 you can use F11 to set it to display on full screen. Unless you need to set the screen resolution, width and height for your monitor, those should work for you. Pressing Ctrl key and scrolling your mouse will adjust the zoom of web page too, quicker way.

What happens when you press the F11 key

Monitor is enlarged, wont return to normal size


You may have hit the "F11" key which takes the open window to fullscreen. "F11" toggles large, small... If not that, beboot. If that doesn't clear it up, then the display settings have gotten altered. Right click on the desktop, select "settings" and increase the resolution. Windows should prompt you to keep or reject the change. Select yes or no when prompted.
