when you in the full screen mode, you can move the mouse to the top of the screen and it will drop down the top bar.

If F11 doesn't work on it's own, then maybe that key doesn't work. There is no reason for it not to, unless there is another key that needs to be pressed. Does the colour of the key F11 different to the a-zs?

What is the make/name of the keyboard if you know?

The Fn (function key) is lower left between the left ctrl key and the windows key.

The Microsoft media keyboard has the Fn key on the lower right aside of the Alt key.

If you are on a laptop, simply press the F11 key along the top row. To get the title and search back, press F11 again.
If You read my last statement, I found the problem....just a word to let anyone who reads this, not everyone has the same keyboard setups. I know that FN is usually on laptops and I mentioned that I am using a desktop with a keyboard that is well over 12 years old...no FN key. Thank you.

My keyboard, attached to a 2009 desktop computer, is from the 1990's. The keyboard that came with the 2009 computer, was black so it is in storage. Does it not have a row of function keys across the top?

I just checked. I have 9 keyboards: brands like Dell, Logitech, Gateway and emachine as well as no name junkers. Some of these are quite old. (pre 2009) Most are PS/2 but 2 or 3 are USB. All have a row of function keys above the numbers.
Mine is similar to this except it says QuietKey aside of the Dell logo.

Hold down an Alt key and press Spacebar, then press R key to Restore the current window size to default, or press X key to maXimize the window size.

Is this the site?

https://www.mlb.com/scores/2021-05-09

If not, can you give us the URL to the site so we can test it?
Yes, was that the first site you see when u opened it? Mine opens up with all the video highlites of various games and when I want to get to that very site you showed me, is prior to it I get that message about expanding the screen and when i eventually do succeed in expanding it, i do not get that particular site, whereas in the past I had no probllems.

Actually, this was the first page I went to:

https://www.mlb.com/starting-lineups

Then I clicked on "Scores" as you mentioned to get the one I linked to above.

I didn't have any message such as the one you got though.

Do you sign in to the site or just view it as a visitor?

Its been quite a few years since i started viewing this site. I am constantly getting in my email a notice that its available. So I just enter the site without signing in. Do you think that makes a difference? How else would they get my email address? I checked my Firefox log ins and password and there is none shown for this site. Incidentally, that is the same url that I arrive at when I click on the email link. Only a week ago, I would scroll down to read the listed scores and then click on anyone of them and a site opens up that says at the top 'scores' and the dates of forthcoming games. Like I said in my OP, clicking on one of the scores in that scroll down list, opens video highlites of that particular game that I chose.

You probably just signed up for their newsletter which is how they would get your email address.

Can you post a screenshot of the page your on and the message you get?

I did 2 captures the first one i get when i click on the email, is the one saved as CaptureSnip. I don't show it here, but on that one, I scroll down and i see a list of all the games played the day/night before. I click on any one of those scores and i get the following site, saved as Cap2. The one score i clicked on shows a video of the highlites of that particular game. Hope this helps.

I deleted the second image because it shows your email address.

It looks to me like you're logged in there so you're seeing things we can't when we don't have an account.

I would have liked to see a screenshot showing the message asking you to expand the screen though if you can. That might help.

OK, please do post it when you can as it might help the troubleshooting unless others have more ideas in the meantime.
