how can I restore my browser size to normal? it suddenly went to full screen.

Posted

I have Vista and my browser screen suddenly has gone large so I can't see my address line. Is there an F-key I can use to make it go back to normal size? My browser screen takes up the whole monitor. I want it to go back to normal size. thanks.

I tried the F11 key to restore the browser size to normal and it didn't work. What else can I do?

More Information

When I take my cursor all the way to the top of my screen, I can see the address bar. But it does not stay that way when I move my mouse from the top of the screen. I need to see the address bar and want to change my screen size back to normal.

You may be in Full Screen Mode. The F11 key toggles Full Screen Mode on or off.
