The first method which we can try out to make Kodi Full screen is using a keyboard shortcut. With the Kodi software open, press the following keys on your Keyboard. Hold ALT in the bottom left of your keyboard, then press ENTER. This should make your Kodi full screen, hiding the bottom task bar and top menu bar. You can use this keyboard shortcut on most other software, allowing it to go full screen. If this method didn’t work, try the one below.

So if the above method didn’t work with the keyboard shortcut, Kodi has an implemented feature that will allow you to choose between Windowed and Full Screen. These steps are for the Estuary skin, which is the default skin that comes with Kodi Krypton (V17).

  1. Open Kodi, and open System Settings by pressing the cog icon in the top centre of your home screen.
  2. Choose “System Settings”, found in the middle row towards the far right.
  3. Ensure your on the display section on the left. On the right, look for “Display Mode”
