Tip: Exiting Full-screen in the Web Browser When in Tablet Mode on ChromeOS

Beginning with ChromeOS 70.x, Google has enhanced the tablet mode abilities of the operating system. It’s not coincidental that this renewed focus comes as part of the announcement of the company’s first ChromeOS-based tablet. We noted recently how similar ChromeOS tablet functionality is now to what Windows 8 was when it first released.

One thing that does work differently is how to exit out of full-screen mode in the Chrome web browser. If you’re streaming video or reading content, exiting full-screen is actually a pretty simple procedure where most have begun just closing the browser altogether. Most video streaming sites offer their own controls for minimizing the full-screen video, but the ChromeOS function makes it even easier and works for any site.

[1] To exit full-screen mode, use your finger to tap and hold the screen until a close button (‘x’) displays.

[2] Tap the ‘x’ to exit full-screen. The web browser won’t close completely, just take you back to a browser-sized window.
