Stuck in Full Screen

Ignotus
Casual Listener

Hello,

 

A while ago, Spotify decided that it should be in Full-Screen (taskbar not visible anymore) and I cannot figure out how to undo this. I tried F11 and Alt-Enter, but nothing seems to work.

 

Can anyone help me with this annoyance please? Thank you very much in advance.

Install wmctrl if you don't have it.

 

Then pause the music and run "wmctrl -r spotify -b toggle,fullscreen" while spotify is running.

In my case, wmctrl solved. However, you have to give it the name of the window you want to toggle fullscreen. You can see the name of the screen by using:

 

wmctrl -l

In my case, it listed Spotify as "Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird". Then I did:

 

wmctrl -r "Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird" -b toggle,fullscreen

And it solved it.
