Hide UI Per Window



  • Currently, you can have a per-window fullscreen. However if you choose to hide the UI (via Ctrl+F11) this is global across all windows, which is sometimes not desirable



  • To avoid any confusion, I assume that you speak about CTRL+F11 😉

    I add this precision because I have seen people thinking about different things when talking about UI or fullscreen mode, especially because "hide the UI" is accessible only by keyboard shortcut if I'm not mistaken (so only a few people are familiar with it).

    I'd like it to be for all parts of UI.
    e.g. In one window I want to hide the Status Bar - but still have it in another window.
    Same for Tab Bar, URL Bar etc. Each element/bar hide should be active only for the invoking Window.

    Same when I have a mix of "normal" windows and "private" windows.



  • Ok, so your request is more generic than I thought. But anyway, imho CTRL+F11 should also be windows specific, and can be included in what you say.



  • I join the request ... I want and I need at least something like what advertising does when it opens a window without icons, without tabs, only with the address bar "blocked" .. even something like that would be useful or if You can start a separate window.
    For example: "vivaldi-stable --new-window --no-ui-tab https://forum.vivaldi.net" tell me how I do it,

    because I suppose that if the pages of advertising and other sites that can do it in the form of a pop-up window, it means that this is already implemented in the browser.



  • This would be pretty cool. I didn't even know that shortcut and feature existed. I did notice that opening web panels was a bit sluggish in this view, compared to normal. So maybe that could use some attention in general.

    Tab Thumbnails should also be visible per window.



  • @Pesala I am upvoting this feature request, It is very similar to mine...
    Full-screen and Toggle UI settings should be on a per-window basis, not affect all windows
    Thanks @Pesala for marking this as a duplicate, although my FR is slightly different in that I want per-window settings not just for toggleUI (ctrl+F11) but ALSO FOR FULLSCREEN MODE (F11). Unfortunately my original FR is now locked so I am unable to clarify the difference there, hopefully the devs reading this post will get that my request is for BOTH features to be on a per-window basis.
    FWIW @Pesala I appreciate the guidance on how to search the forum, and sorry if it seemed like i didn't bother searching first, as it happens, i'm not a noob, and actually i did search the forum under the keyword 'Fullscreen' and didn't find any relevant results, hence the post you marked as a duplicate...

    when I go Fullscreen in any window by pressing F11, the other windows go UI-less and have the small grey bar at the top,
    it seems i am unable to have one window in full-screen occupying the full real-estate on monitor 1, while having the full browser UI in the window on monitor 2.

    What I would like best is fully independent control over both features, on a per-window basis

    Things have changed since this thread was started.

    • Hide UI on my primary monitor sets the other window on my secondary monitor to fullscreen
    • Fullscreen on my primary monitor sets the other window to fullscreen too
    • Hide UI on my secondary monitor sets the window on the primary monitor to Hide UI
    • Fullscreen on my secondary monitor sets the window on the primary monitor to Hide UI

    In brief, the feature is buggy. Fully independent control to show/hide UI elements (toolbars, panels, title bar) is needed.



  • @Pesala Agreed 🙂 plus a million !



  • I just tried "hide UI" in the latest snapshot. It hid the UI in the window I wanted and left the other alone. To that end, my initial request had been met.
