How to Disable Full-Screen Mode for Microsoft Edge in Windows

Many people prefer to use their browser’s full-screen mode, while others dislike it. It can be aggravating at times if you mistakenly switch from normal to full-screen mode on the browser.

The full-screen approach displays the webpage portion of the screen while hiding some browser features, such as the page controls. A Maximized Mode is also available, which keeps the page control visible.

If you dislike the full-screen mode on the browser, there is a way to stop it entirely in the Microsoft Edge browser on the Windows operating system. We will teach you how to disable full-screen mode in Microsoft Edge on Windows OS in this step-by-step instruction.

How to disable Full-Screen Mode in Microsoft Edge

Step 1: On your computer, open the Run window by hitting the Windows + R buttons on your keyboard.

Step 2: When the Run prompt appears, type “regedit” into the input field and hit the Enter key.

Step 3: In the Registry Editor that opens, navigate to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftEdge

Step 5: Rename the newly created key as “Edge” and then double-click on it. On the right-side, right-click anywhere in the empty area and then select New > DWORD (320-bit) value.
