    Default Fullscreen window in Gnome

    I'm trying out Gnome at the moment. One thing that worked well in KDE was making windows fullscreen. There's an option on the panel: advanced->fullscreen, however there doesn't appear to be that option in Gnome.

    Can a Gnome expert help me out here? I work a lot from home thru VNC and I like to have it in fullscreen mode.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I am reluctant to call myself a gnome expert ... but I have used it daily for many years. I am not aware of such a feature existing independent of specific applications (such as firefox and VMWare) that implement it. If I remember correctly, the default VNC client on OpenSUSE's gnome has a fullscreen option. I think it is in a "connection settings" section or something similar.


    Have fun!

    Yeah, I saw that as well. I tried it out, but it doesn't work... well it works on the firefox window, but not on any other window. Strange!

    Also, in the control center "Personal->Keyboard Shortcuts" there is no option for fullscreen. Btw, "System->Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts" doesn't exist which makes me believe that the instructions are for an older version of gnome.
