do a spotlight search on the remote mac with the string "mission control". Works on Yosemite at least
I know this might not be what you actually want to hear, however... Fullscreen/Menus is an either/or You can have one or the other. That's the whole idea, like it or not. The workaround is to learn the key commands. Once you do, you'll wonder what the menus were ever for. BTW, your two scenarios are mutually exclusive & simply require more accurate ...
You could use an AppleScript like that to do it. tell application "Safari" to activate delay 3 --adjust to your needs tell application "System Events" tell process "Safari" tell menu bar 1 tell menu bar item "View" tell menu "View" click menu item "Hide Toolbar" end tell ...
@Wladimir Palant has a great solution over at http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/157274/92712, using BetterTouchTool to reassign the role of the green button. Works for me! (Note: @Wladimir's answer actually solves this question, not the one he posted in)
I found that BetterTouchTool solves this problem nicely. The Preferences aren't quite intuitive: Select "Other" category at the top of the window. Make sure that "Global" is selected at the left side. Click "Configure New Trigger" button in the bottom part of the window. Select "Leftclick Green Window Button" as trigger.

I use TotalSpaces for this. It gives you an unlimited number of virtual desktops (each can be multi-monitor) and easy keyboard and visual navigation between them. It basically does gracefully what Mission Control fails to do (I've had Mission Control disabled for a long time thanks to TotalSpaces).

Solved - I'd misread ^-CMD-F as SHIFT-CMD-F rather than CTRL-CMD-F
Here's my workaround: right click on the 1/4-screen video and, if you're using Flash 15.0.0.xxx, you should see a Stretching is <type> item in the options list. Click on that and the video will fill the screen. Keep repeating until you get back to the 'Stretching is none' setting, unless you prefer something else. I have the same issue when using ...
ShiftIt is a free app that does a similar job to some of the others mentioned here: CMD + ALT + CTRL + F gives you full-screen. It also does quarter screen, center, and move to next screen if you have multiple monitors. It requires XQuartz which does rather dwarf its <1Mb download. Hadn't come across Spectacle before; it may offer a more complete feature ...
