Microsoft Changed the Full-Screen Shortcut for Apps in Windows 10
Microsoft has made a significant change in the full-screen shortcut for apps in Windows 10. Previously, users could enter full-screen mode by pressing the F11 key. However, Microsoft has recently announced that they will be changing this shortcut to Windows key + Shift + Enter.
This may take some getting used to for users who are used to the old F11 shortcut, but Microsoft says that this change was made to make things more consistent across their platforms. This new shortcut will be used for all Microsoft apps, including Office and Edge, and will be consistent across Windows, Mac, and mobile devices.
The Windows key + Shift + Enter shortcut is not a completely new one, as it has been used for full-screen mode in Microsoft’s Edge browser on Windows 10 for some time. However, this change will now make it the universal shortcut across all apps.
In addition to consistency across platforms, this change also means that users won’t accidentally enter full-screen mode when trying to access the F11 function key for other purposes. This could be especially useful for users who frequently switch between using multiple apps simultaneously.
While some users may find this change frustrating at first, it’s important to remember that Microsoft is constantly working to improve their systems and streamline processes. This change may seem minor, but it’s just one of the many updates and improvements that Microsoft is making to improve their user experience.
