    I’ve been using NoMachine to display MacOS 11.5.1 in a window that’s about 3/4 the maximum size of the client desktop – also a Mac.
    The VM’s display is 1920 x 1080 and the client Mac’s main display is also 1920 x 1080.

    Now I would like to try having NoMachine display it as the Mac’s full-screen mode does for an application – no menubar at the top, no dock, and completely filling the screen. The key commands to typically do this do not seem to work with a NoMachine window. Just a beep.

    Is this a NoMachine limitation or something in my screen sizing settings? I kinda get lost with all that the resizing options do.

    Hi dlfuller,

    This is a known issue. We suggest you enter full-screen mode by pressing Control+Option+F.

    We have a high priority feature request open to solve this limitation: Integrating the NoMachine window fullscreen mode with macOS Spaces management.

    Thanks for the helpful reply @Carlin.

    I had been using the Mac standard Control+Command+F for full-screen mode and was only getting beeps.  Per your tip, instead that Control+Option+F does what I need for now until the feature request is addressed.

    Thanks again.

    Curiosity question: That key combination doesn’t show on any Apple listings I have seen.  Did I miss it, is it a NoMachine hack, or what?

    Thanks again @Carin.  That Knowledge Base article is immensely helpful.  RTM possibly since I had no idea those keyboard shortcuts were available until you referenced it.
