    Follow these steps to configure your session(s) to run in full screen mode. These steps will allow you to hide the Start Bar, Application Menu, tool bar and Keybars



    Screen real estate is expensive on typical 1/4 VGA terminals. To retain additional rows of screen space, you can hide the Windows CE / Windows Mobile Start Bar. You can also hide the CETerm application menu and any toolbar and Keybars. Doing so will give you up to three additional rows of screen real estate. It will also prevent mavrick users from being able to change the configuration settings on the terminal thus minimizing downtime.
    Follow these steps to set up your session in full screen mode:

    • Go to [Session] -> [Configure] -> [Display] -> [Advanced] -> [Hide / Show] tab
    • Enable the checkbox settings:
      • Hide Menu Bar

    • Go to [Session] -> [Configure] -> [Options] -> [Advanced] -> [Access] tab
    • Enable the checkbox settings:
      • Hide Start Bar
      • Hide Start Menu
    • If you would like to hide the vertical and horizontal scroll bars as well, you can do do from the [Session] -> [Configure] -> [Display] dialog
