How to go fullscreen?

i’m fairly e-illiterate and am used to f11 being the key to toggle fullscreen, but it’s not what’s used here in ubuntu budgie. i tried to set something using the keyboard section under ‘settings’ (which is nice and quite simple, i easily set keyboard shortcuts for raising and lowering volume) but had no luck with setting a shortcut for fullscreen.
an unrelated subject is that i want to thank ubuntu budgie for existing; i tried installing a number of linices (i.e. linux distributions) and ubuntu budgie was the only one that connected this lenovo ideapad 130s 11igm to the internet.
thanks for the good work

This is odd. F11 operates as it should for me. Is this on all applications, or specific ones? Also, does your keyboard have a ‘fn’ key that toggles between “f key” functionality and say media keys?

Thank you.

I have the ‘fn’ toggle going on, but it looks like it can be switched in bios settings (HP Stream).
Fn+F11 works for full screening chromium.

When this business of re-using F-keys was introduced, someone must have felt a great disturbance in the world of computing.

problem solved, and that was about a quick a reply as i could imagine. if i just press f11 it dims the screen, but when i use the fn + f11 i get fullscreen.
thank you very very much


Glad that you are all sorted out. Have a great day.
