When you enter full screen mode there are two options to return to normal view mode. You can press the power button and choose Toggle Title Bar, or you can choose the Restore Down button on the top right of the screen.

If you wish to hide the Restore Down button follow these steps:

  1. Select the blue drop down Menu.
  2. Select Setup.
  3. Select Setup Menu.
  4. Select Interface Features.
  5. Select Title Bar Tab.
  6. Make sure the box next to Show Modify button is empty. We do not want to show the Modify button.
  7. Select OK to exit out of this menu.
  8. Select System Settings.
  9. Select Full Screen mode by placing an 'X' in the box next to Full Screen Mode.
  10. Select OK to exit out of all of the menus. The Restore Down button will now be hidden.

Now the only way to exit full screen mode is to press the power button and toggle the title bar.

NOTE: Once you enter the menus you must travel back to System Settings before exiting or the Restore Down button will appear again.

The other option is to run the Make Closed upgrade, to restrict access to the Windows desktop. This will keep the restore tab (at the upper right corner) from appearing.
