Eclipse Full Screen Mode Plugin
The great thing with blogging is: I receive great comments, questions and ideas. The great thing with Eclipse/CodeWarrior is that the extensions are almost unlimited . For my earlier post on hiding the toolbar I received a tip for another way which even is better: a plugin to switch Eclipse into full screen mode. Here is how to install it and how it looks…
The plugin is available from http://code.google.com/p/eclipse-fullscreen/. Download the zip file. The zip file has the cn.pande.eclipsex.fullscreen_<version>.jar file. Copy that file inside the CodeWarrrior or Eclipse eclipse\plugins folder.
After launching Eclipse there is new entry in the Window menu:
This switches Eclipse into full screen mode:
This hides the toolbar, menu and status bar, and I have more space available for what matters
How to get out of full screen mode:
- Press ESC key to exit full screen mode.
- Ctrl+Alt+z is the default shortcut to toggle between ‘normal’ and ‘full screen’ mode.
Happy Full Screening
