Switch between fullscreen and windowed mode

I just installed PMC on an old Mac Mini running Ubuntu 12.10 x64. The first couple of times I ran PMC it worked fine, but now it always starts in windowed mode, for some reason.

 

Is there a way to switch between windowed and fullscreen mode?

 

How do I force PMC to start up in fullscreen mode?

 

Any help is greatly appreaciated!

    its the "\" key to switch. or in Prefs>system>video.  it should stay that way after a it relaunches. if not i would think it is not saving the pref file correctly. I unfortunately don't know where that pref file would be

    Thank you. "\" worked perfectly. Plex remembers the setting, so no problems now.

  • Where would I enter "\" to make this work?? My 3D (technically all) movies are starting in windowed mode and I need them to be fullscreen. This really doesn't affect playback of 2D movies, but screws up the overlay of HSBS and TAB 3D files.

    Running PMS on a Windows 7 PC, streaming to a Zeki Media Box connected to my Vizio 3d tv thru HDMI.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    that is the \ key on your keyboard when you are using Plex Media Center or Plex Home Theater on Windows, OS X or Linux. From what i can tell a  Zeki Media Box is an Android based system in which case ask in the Android section of forums. Cuz that is a completely different client.

    That would be great if it worked but it doesn't.
