Opera Mail: How to disable "Press ESC to exit Full Screen mode" notification?

  • I find working in full screen with Opera Mail very useful at times, especially with long emails. But I often have to switch back and forth in and out of Full Screen mode. Seeing this pointless notification is irritating. Is there any way of getting rid of it? Preferences in Opera Mail are mighty scant!

    I've no idea whether that exists in Opera Mail too (it is only a cut down version of the full browser) but you could give it a try.

  • Just did that yesterday for the browser. Looks like they are separate.
    There is something called "Chromeless DOM Fullscreen". Anybody know what this is?

  • I've no idea whether that exists in Opera Mail

    I would try putting:

    Show Fullscreen Exit Information=0

    under [User Prefs] in operaprefs.ini for Opera Mail while Opera Mail is closed. If it's still supported, that should do the trick.
