Stuck in full screen

@leocg I do not know which page it was. I looked through history but couldn't decide. But here is what I found (and most likely cause).
Opera version 75.0.3969.149
- Go to twitter.com (logged in)
- F11 to go to full screen.
- ESC does not work.
- Right context menu does show Exit Full screen as an option, but not everywhere.
if I can reproduce it (find the page where exit menu entry was not available) I will update.

@friendshipseeker just in case anyone encounters this problem, the solution I did was to delete my opera gx browser on my windows laptop and downloaded it immediately again. When the browser opened after I re-installed it, the speed dial is not in full screen anymore. Hope this helps

I created a new problem, and gave my work-around because the original thread is locked and I cannot add.
As for when it happens, I am not sure. I touched something, maybe F11, and it went into full screen. I assumed that Esc would get me out, it didn't. I had to 'Alt-Tab' and go to a different window and google in Firefox, and came across that forum entry above, with no solution. I killed Opera, relaunched, still stuck, and no 'Exit full screen' etc. option anywhere. I went into settings because it was possible and there I see the 'Exit... ' in context menu.
Just implement 'Esc' or add 'Exit Full Screen' in the context menu, please.
Yes indeed -- tablet mode forces your computer to work like an iPad, where everything is always full screen. Some people only use Windows if it acts like an iPad.

to exit fullscreen, right click on the mouse button to get the options screen, it's that easy.

what I did typed alt+p to get to settings them went to shortcuts setting and changed toggle fullscreen to something that wasn't used unlike f11 (which changes brightness for me) and once I changed the shortcut I put the new full screen command in and I was out of full screen
