Windows 10: Unable to Get Edge Back to Full Screen

    Unable to Get Edge Back to Full Screen

    Just installed the major update for windows 10.
    I was playing around with the 'Set these tabs aside'. Now there is a large section (I'm assuming it's a tab preview) at the top that I can't close.
    The address bar is now a quarter of the way down the screen.

    Any way to get Edge back to full screen??
    I been messing a round for a half hour trying to fix this.

    Reset Microsoft Edge to Default in Windows 10

    Restart the computer ?

    Worst case scenario, reset Edge. Probably a simpler fix that I know not.

    Done that.
    Also, cleaned everything form Edge.

    Sounds as if you have the same issue than OP in this thread: Edge Layout - Windows 10 Forums

    If so, post #2 shows how to fix it.

    That did the trick,
    Problem is I can't see the icon with the Dark Theme!
    I can see the x and +. Even when I hovered over it, didn't appear.
    Never knew it was there

    Thanks much,
