    Windows 8 exits from full screen on anything hp


    Hello,
    When watching videos on you tube in full screen, it will leave to normal screen in one min. My drivers are up to date and system do not show any notifications for updates. This problem occurs irrespective of any browser and full screen exits on anything. If anyone could help that would be awesome and I highly appreciate their support.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Hi ravs, Welcome to Eight fr orums.

    First thing I would check, is keyboard. Sometimes a key could be this issue. It might remain stuck and when you press some other key it might automatically exits full screen. Try another keyboard and check if issue persists.

    Second, check for any program that might be running in background and auto updating itself. Such programs can cause auto exit from full screen.

    For this you can run MSCONFIG.

    1. Select Run under Programs.
    2.
    Type MSCONFIG, then click OK. The System Configuration Utility window opens.
    3.
    Check the box for Selective Startup.
    4. Click OK.
    5. Uncheck Load Startup Items.
    6. Click Apply, then Close.

    Reboot the PC and then check.

    Keep us posted.
