    A suggestion if you really want full-screen function

    • Right click on the Edge icon on your taskbar
    • Click on the option to 'unpin from taskbar'
    • Go to Start menu►Windows accessories►Internet Explorer and right click 'pin to taskbar'
    • Go to Settings►System►Default Apps►Web Browser
    • Change the default browser from Edge to Internet Explorer

    Hi again WhyMe,

    I appreciate your suggestion. However, since Windows 10 is supposed to be Microsoft's Browser of the future I guess I had better learn it. But I am still hoping Microsoft will bring back some of the tools they didn't think many of us used.

    Thanks and regards,

    I think you meant Microsoft's Edge being the Browser on Windows.

    As for the screen part, there's a difference between Maximized and Full Screen.

    On my Win10, checking my Edge shows it can be Maximized but the F11 key function useful for toggling Full Screen on or off doesn't work on Edge like it still does with Internet Explorer, Firefox and SeaMonkey browsers.
