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:

Fullscreen Menu Item

Full Screen Menu Item

This switches Eclipse into full screen mode:

Eclipse in Full Screen Mode

Eclipse in 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 :-)
