Shortcut Information

Use this shortcut to set any application or video window to fullscreen automatically.

Works with AppleScript locally or via SSH when remote away from the Mac – works well if you’re watching a YouTube video and want to make it fullscreen without touching the keyboard.

Note: On a Mac with a Globe or Fn key, this keyboard shortcut uses that instead of Control – however I haven’t found how to simulate holding down the key, which uses key code 63: https: or or eastmanreference.com or complete-list-of-applescript-key-codes
