Easily Navigate In And Out Of Full-Screen Mode In OS X

Maybe you love Mac OS X Lion's new full-screen mode or maybe you hate it. Either way, you'll be better off knowing this little shortcut, because it can get you in and out of full-screen mode faster — whether you want to be in it or not.

All you have to do is press Control+Command+F and any full-screen app will toggle the way it's displayed. This is much faster than moving your mouse to the top of the screen wand waiting for the menu bar to show up just so you can get back to your desktop. For a demo, check out the video above.


    Or you can use something like Better Touch Tool to make a custom gesture to toggle between full-screen mode and normal.

    I use a four finger swipe down to switch between the two modes.
