Opera comes with a selection of different display modes to accommodate your hardware and your browsing habits.
Use Page Up and Page Down to switch slides.
Two of these display modes that are particularly useful for laptop users: fit to width and full-screen mode.
Fit to Width
Opera's rendering engine supports flexible reformatting of all Web pages. A lot of Web pages are made for specific screen resolutions and sizes. Fit to width adjusts the page size to the available screen space.
You can permanently enable fit to width in the Web pages preferences.
If you prefer to browse in normal display mode, simply hit Ctrl+F11 or go toto enter fit to width mode when you encounter a page that is too wide for your screen.
Full-screen mode allows you to use the entire computer screen for browsing. This removes all menus and toolbars from view, but you will of course still be able to use context menus, mouse gestures, and keyboard shortcuts.
To enter full-screen mode, press F11, select it from the Web page context menu, or go to. F11 and the context menu also let you return to normal screen view.
If a Web document is styled for the "projection" media type, switching to full-screen mode turns Opera into a presentation tool. Use Page Up and Page Down to switch slides.
Opera can be started with the command line switch /KioskMode. Kiosk mode takes advantage of the full-screen mode to present users with a limited version of the browser, for use for example in schools, libraries, or public information kiosks.
Small-screen mode, entered by pressing Shift+F11 or by going tolets you see how the current Web page would look if displayed on a mobile phone running Opera, a convenient feature for Web developers who want to make sure their design works across platforms.
You can also use small-screen mode on Web panels to ensure that they fit the available space.
Print preview mode lets you see how a Web page will appear if printed. Press Shift+P, or go toto switch screen modes.
