How to change chrome browser to full screen

When using the Chrome browser or other browsers as an app, especially when you don’t want to show the URL, changing it to full screen is probably the basic thing as a finished app.

The following is how to change the Chrome browser to full screen.

  1. Press the F11 key on your keyboard to go to full screen right away.
  2. Click the 3 dots at the top right end of the browser to bring up the options menu. Click the square icon in the middle to change to full screen.
  3. You can change to full screen without doing #1 and #2 above with the java script below.

    <script>

    function myFullFunction() {

    var docElm = document.documentElement;
    if (docElm.requestFullscreen) {
    docElm.requestFullscreen();
    }
    else if (docElm.mozRequestFullScreen) {
    docElm.mozRequestFullScreen();
    }
    else if (docElm.webkitRequestFullScreen) {

    docElm.webkitRequestFullScreen();
    }

    }

    </script>

<body onload=”myFullFunction()”>

 

However, the code above can be problematic for tablelets, phones, or Chromebooks.

“Failed to execute ‘requestFullScreen’ on ‘Element’: API can only be initiated by a user gesture.”

This is because any event can only work properly by creating it.

I haven’t found another way in particular yet, but I can walk around it in the following way, but I don’t recommend it.

 

function toggleFullScreen() {
if (!document.fullscreenElement) {
document.documentElement.requestFullscreen();
} else {
if (document.exitFullscreen) {
document.exitFullscreen();
}
}
}

document.addEventListener(“keypress”, function(e) {
if (e.keyCode === 13) {
toggleFullScreen();
}
}, false);

That is, you have to click the Enter key or the Return key again.

To return to normal mode from full screen like this, do #1 or #2 above, or click the X mark to return to normal mode by moving the mouse cursor to the top of the browser screen.

How to remove ask.com search new tab from google browser


Ask.com is sneaking around to install its main page to chrome browser so that it can be the default new tab page or default search engine. This video wil show you how to remove it.

Many people start with  Google search page of chrome from in many different places such as desktop system,

android smart phone, tablet, and so on.  What I meant is  you are expected to see the google search   page based on opening new tab or chrome browser.

However, it might be a virus or something you have committed to install ask.com as a default page while you are installing a software to your device.

In order to remove it, you have to uninstall it from the control panel.

1. start menu -> control panel -> Programs ( uninstall) : You will see the ask.com from the installed programs and select it and click the uninstall.

2. it might not uninstall it easily, since the Chrome processes are running in the background.  In this case, you have to go task manager and find all chrome names and stop the processes. 

3. then go to the tools from the Chrome browse and open the extensions. If there is any ask.com existed, then remove it too.
