Toggle Full Screen and Hide Menu Bar

<10kB. Updated 2016-09-20. Only supports Anki 2.0.

This is a modified version of the "Toggle Full Screen" add-on by Damien Elmes. Please uninstall the other version of the add-on before installing this one. In addition to setting the window to full-screen, this add-on also hides the menu-bar to create a distraction-free learning environment. Please note that there is no menu entry in this version. You have to use F11 to toggle the window state.


The add-on author has not uploaded a version of this add-on compatible with Anki 2.1. Old add-ons for Anki 2.0 can be downloaded from the archive.

Here is a simple cure for those of you, guys, who cannot make it show the menu back. Edit the addon file, adding these lines (in the appropriate places):

def showMenu():
returnMyMenu = QAction("Show Menu", mw)
mw.connect(returnMyMenu, SIGNAL("triggered()"), showMenu)

The code could be prettified, but I've made it in one minute just to make it work with the another one hotkey. Don't know why the original toggle (if/else construct) doesn't work.

It didn't return the menu bar. I need to restart anki to delete this add-on.

Disables hotkeys like Ctrl+Z (as mentioned below) but not hotkeys like D to return to decks screen. Upon returning to deck and exiting fullscreen mode it didn't return the menu bar either.

Would be perfect if it didn't disable hotkeys like Ctrl+Z, which in my opinion is essential.
