    Improve screen size

    Hi All,

    This is my first post. I have just update a dell tablet to win 10. I would like to increase the screen viewing area and have auto hidden the task bar.

    My question is about the 2 top bars, ( not sure of the correct names ). Can either of these bars be hidden/removed/disabled and so increase the screen size.

    I know how to go full screen when I reach my target page, its just in the general viewing scenario that I wish a larger viewing size.

    Thanks all.

    Can you post a screen capture of the window showing the bars you want to remove?

    Use Internet Explorer instead of Microsoft Edge - F11 toggles full screen mode - not yet implemented in Microsoft Edge

    Which bar is it

    Hi Ztruker,

    I am not on that device at the moment so cannot do a screen shot. However in a attempt to clarify on win 7 (and other OS ) its the same position as the menu bar.

    I thought it would just be right click and un-tick a box and its gone. That option I cannot find, perhaps it does not exist.

    I have found the option for the task bar to auto hide that so at least that has improved the screen size.

    Comments on this query welcomed from all readers.
