How does safari open in full screen?

When I open safari, the page doesn't open in full screen, so I have to scroll sideways the entire time. How do change the page settings, so that safari automatically opens in full screen? Help!

You'll find a solution here (from savage-henry), at least it worked for me.

  • Window does not open to full screen???

    This one has me stumped. I recently installed / upgraded to CS5.1, set up all my preferences, keyboard shortcuts, presets, plugins. All worked fine, day in - day out,  for the last three weeks.
    About three days ago this anomaly appeared...
    When I zoom in (cmd +/), the window will resize, but only part way. The window will move over flush right on the monitor, but leave about one inch of space between the window and the left side of the monitor, and increase in size until it fits aprox 2/3rds of the monitor / screen. It stops enlarging and leaves about 3 inches of space between the window and the bottom of the screen. At that point I get scroll bars. So I end up with a much smaller window to work in.
    I can grab the bottom right corner of the window, pull it open to fill the screen, but as soon as I go to zoom in or out, the window jumps back to the smaller size with the gap on the left side and bottom.
    It's driving me crazy!! having to work in such a small window.
    Option bar is "Standard Screen Mode"
    All my pallets are on a separate monitor, so nothing else is on my main monitor that would limit the size of my window as I zoom in.
    My preferences are set to:
    • Zoom Resizes Windows
    • Enable Flick Panning (works fine)
    • Animated Zoom
    OS 10.5x
    10GB ram
    I don't know if I inadvertently changed something to cause this. So I'm hoping someone here can solve this issue.
    Thanks in advance!

    Grant,
    upon further investigation, the "application frame" yields other unwanted effects.
    That setting gives me tabbed viewing (which I don't want), even though I have that turned off in preferences. When I open multiple documents they open not as individual windows, but as a tab in the one open window. When I go into the options bar and set the "arrange documents" to "float in windows", I get the individual windows, but then I get the same problem of the windows not zooming to the full screen, as stated in my original posting.
    Also, just saw that even with the "application frame" checked, when I open a smart object layer, that window still has the same zoom issue.
    So the problem still exists.
    Any other ideas?
    fyi: here is a screen capture of the original screen / zoom issue.
    You can see the gray space on the left and bottom. The scroll bars are showing and the window will not get any larger.
    Thanks JeffN

  • How can I get my safari screen to open in full screen mode

    My Safari screen open with a small window, can I set it to open in full screen every time I click on Safari

    You need to enable the program to resume what it was doing. so go to:
    System Preferences > General > Uncheck "Close windows when quitting an application".
    then go to safari, size the window how you want it, in your case put it in full screen, and then quit the program. when you open up safari again it should be in full screen view.
    Hope that helps!

  • How to have new Safari windows open in full screen?

    Hello,
    I am wondering if it is possible to have new Safari windows take up the full screen. For example, if I click on a link that opens a new window, I would like that new window to take on the fully maximized setting of the window it came from. So even if the website code says the window has to be 50% screen real estate, I would like to be 100% every time automatically.
    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums!
    Yet another great thing that Glims can do!
    If you want to fix your Google search to a specific Google location, I recommend that you download and install the free plug-in Glims:
    http://www.machangout.com/
    which not only does that but much more equally useful stuff! (Such as automatically deleting Flash cookies, enabling Safari to run full-screen, and more.)
    (It adds items to Safari Preferences).
    Not only does it already list a number of search engines and regions, but you can also add any other search engine not already listed in Glims by using the method described here:
    http://www.machangout.com/tutorials/addsearchengine
    Just enter the name you give the search engine in the name field, and the URL for it in the Query URL field.
    When you have it, the setting is in Glims Preferences/General

    Mountain Lion is set up to close windows when you quit a program instead of saving them. To change this, put Safari in full-screen mode, move the cursor to the top, open Safari menu while holding Option key and close Safari from the menu.
    If you want to do it automatically with all programmes, open System Preferences > General, and deactivate "Close windows when quitting an application"

  • Safari opens with a small screen, how to I make it full screen?

    need help with making safari open in full screen

    Using command-control-F only works once for me. The next time Safari is opened, it goes right back to a small window in the upper right of the screen; so small that it's unusable. Deleting ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db also makes no difference.
    For me, the solution was to:
    1.) Open Safari.
    2.) Click on the green button.
    3.) Quit Safari.
    4.) Open Safari and the window will be maximized.
    If you do anything in Safari after clicking the green button (step two above) then this fix will not work. This fix will not cause Safari to open to full screen mode (i.e., the result that you'll get by clicking the two arrows in the upper right of a windo in Safari). It causes Safari to open in the largest possible window for your display.

  • When Safari is in full screen, the window slides off screen to the right after a short period of time.  How do I fix this?

    When Safari is in full screen, window slides off screen to the right after a few seconds.  Does not happen if Safari is not full screen.  How do I fix this?

    You are probably inadvertently swiping to another full-screen app. Are you using a magic trackpad? Does this happen without you touching anything?

  • When I open iTunes it will automatically go to full screen mode. I can't work out how to turn this off. Only iTunes opens to full screen mode.

    When I open iTunes it will automatically go to full screen mode. I can't work out how to turn this off. Only iTunes opens to full screen mode.

    Go to System Preferences (under the Apple logo in the menu bar).  Choose "General".  Click "Always close windows when quitting an application".
    That should fix it.

  • Safari will not open in full screen mode

    After installing the 3-1-14 update from the Apps Store, Safari will not open in full screen mode when I click the double arrow in the upper right corner of the screen. If I try the View>Enter Full Screen it still will not open full screen. Prior to this update, everything was fine. I know the info on the update says it deals with iTunes and iBooks, but after installing it my problems began.
    I am running the Mavericks (all updates installed) on an Mac mini (late 2013 edition), 16GB RAM.
    Any suggestions?

    Please disregard my question. The issue disappeared after a cold boot. Thanks.

    I just tested that since I hardly ever use full screen mode, this was the first time since I upgraded to Mountain Lion, and it worked fine for me.
    Try shutting Safari down and see if that changes anything.
    If that doesn't change anything, try shutting down and then rebooting.

    Move your cursor way over to the right side of the window. There should be a thin bar. when you hover over the left side of the thin bar, the cursor will change to a vertical bar with an arrow sticking out the left. Click and drag to the left.
