About

Full-screen mode is a feature by which supported apps can present a window that takes up the whole screen, with no Dock or Menu Bar visible.

Full-Screen Apps is a feature (added to OS X in 10.7) by which supported applications can present a window that takes up the whole screen. Activating the mode on an app window creates a new Desktop (see ), moves the window there, and suppresses the Menu Bar and Dock, giving the window the entire screen to present itself.

Good candidates for this tag include questions about how general or specific applications behave while in full-screen mode, or potential bugs and other difficulties encountered while working with full-screen mode.
