How to Enable or Disable Microsoft Edge Full-Screen Mode

Written by Thirumalraj

In this post, you’ll see two ways to enable or disable full-screen mode on the Microsoft Edge browser. Pick the one you like.

I’m using a Windows 11 PC here. Let’s start.

How to Enable or Disable Edge Full-Screen Mode using Registry Editor

To disable it, follow these steps:

Open Registry Editor. I suggest a Registry backup before proceeding.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft > Edge.

If you don’t see the Edge key mentioned above, you need to create it, and here’s how: Right-click on the Microsoft key and select New > Key. Type Edge and then press the Enter key.

Right-click on the blank space in the right pane.

Select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Type FullscreenAllowed and then hit the Enter key.

That’s it.

Note: To enable, replace 0 with 1 in the Value data field of the DWORD and then hit the OK button. Or delete the DWORD you created earlier.

How to Enable or Disable Edge Full-Screen Mode using Local Group Policy Editor

Launch local group policy editor.

Navigate to the Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge.

Then double-click “Allow full screen mode” in the right pane.

Select Enabled or Not Configured if you want to enable full-screen mode. To disable full-screen mode, choose Disabled.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.

Thanks for reading.
