Suppress F8 Function in IE8?

Discussion in 'Windows 7' started by Agent_C, Jan 24, 2010.

    In IE8 when you hit the F8 key, it causes the browser to go into
    full-screen mode.

    Any way to suppress this behavior?

    Use Firefox, Opera or Chrome. Internet Exploder is not a recommended
    thing to use if you want to keep your computer safe.

    Oh, so you're going to continue to use Internet Exploder, eh? It's your
    computer so do what you like but don't whine later that you weren't warned.

    What does that have to do with his request to prevent the browser from being
    in full screen mode.? The F11 key does the same thing in Firefox as well.

    Actually that's the F11 key. But why are you hitting it anyway while in IE?
    Wouldn't simply not hitting that key while browsing be better anyway?

    As I stated, it has to do with security. And, he was talking about the
    F8 key that does *nothing* in Internet Exploder.

    Depending on the version of Win7 you're running, you can disable it in Group
    Policy, IINM.

    Its not false, ubuntard.
    I use IE exclusively in Windows ... never a problem.
    Never.
    But I'm sure you can find a link to a few morons who have had a problem.

    Sorry , Group Policy is not available in the Home versions.

    I'm not on my Win7 PC right now, but will be later. I'll look on it and see
    if there's anything else I can find that might help.
