How to toggle fullscreen in Buzz

Michael Pillar

I don't seem to have a fullscreen button in my version of Buzz. On our school's provided Chromebook, when a lesson is selected, it opens in the center of the screen. However one third of the screen above it is occupied by the Buzz app UI/menu and the bottom third of the screen is occupied by the "objectives" information. We are using two article slider bars on one screen - one within the other. This makes viewing the lesson as intended impossible. The lesson is contained within only 2 inches of vertical space within a total of 6 or 7 inches of possible usable space.

To illustrate this problem - cover the top and bottom of your screens horizontally with a full width of duct tape and try to work while only utilizing the center third of your screen. Its impossible. Its poorly designed as is this very page I'm submitting this question to now. The box in which I'm describing my problems (labeled "Details") only allows for three lines of viewable text. Why not make this box much larger so a person can see what they've typed?

I can open up a little bit of screen space by going fullscreen in Chrome which eliminates the web address bar and bookmarks bar but this still is not sufficient.

We are using the FLVS curriculum
angular 9.0.2
Buzz 3.0.193
Chrome 85.0.4183.102
xli 2020.09.09.4938

We are on iPads and do see the Fullscreen button, however, I am wondering if there is a keystroke combination that we can use to toggle it. I have a blind student and his screenreader does not see the button.

We are using the Lincoln Learning Curriculum with Schools PLP.

Any help would be very appreciated.
