    Shortcut key combination for 'Full Screen' button in Store Apps?


    In Apps downloaded from the Windows Store (such as Words With Friends or a million other apps - not regular 'Windows Applications' such as Photoshop or something), they run in a special 'shell' that is obviously controlled by the OS. There are now 4 buttons in the top right (Close | Max/Restore | Minimize | Full Screen - from right to left). All the normal windows shortcuts work for all the known buttons but none of the possible/expected key combinations work for the 'Full Screen' button (such as ALT+ENTER or WINDOWS+UP several times). The button looks like two arrows pointing outward at a 45 angle. If you ARE in full screen, they look the same but the arrows point inward.

    I don't know if I can post a link but here's the button I'm talking about https://i.imgur.com/YQc083l.png (just an Imgur link to YQc083l.png).

    Unfortunately it's impossible to Google a search phrase that includes 'Windows' 'Shortcut key' 'Full Screen' or the like without returning a flood of pages that are just the normal shortcut keys that I already know. If I knew what to call that 'shell' that Apps from the Store run in, I might be able to narrow it down but they appear to be exe files and don't fire up a separate process when they launch. Any info on what that process is called that runs Windows Apps from the Windows Store may assist in my Google-foo. Of course, MS may not have any shortcut key for that 'Full Screen' function - there doesn't appear to be any 'tooltip text' when you mouse over the button in the image I posted originally.
