How to get back to normal. F11 doesn't work. Don't have menu bar or dock.

I went to fulls screen. Now I can't get back to normal screen size. I don't have tool bar, menu or dock. Can't click on anything. F11 doesn't seem to work with Mac Snow Leopard.

On Mac you should be able to toggle full screen mode via command+Shift+F.

You may have discovered this by now, but sliding the mouse pointer all the way to the top of the screen should make the window title bar reappear along with the minimize/maximize/close buttons. On Windows, you can right-click and a small menu appears that allows you to exit full screen mode. (On Mac, maybe it's a long press??)

There are two of us who use the Mac. We each have our own name and password. After my husband signed in and then logged off...I went on. Everything went back to normal. Maybe it was just a glitch. But I'm glad it's over! Thank you for the time you spent replying to my post.
