    I use the web browse Lynx on Mac OS X. The Terminal window is small, and although I know I can increase the size with Command+ I was wondering if there was a way to bring the window full screen?

    Howdy. Click on the green button in the upper left corner. It should expand to (almost) full screen. If it isn’t part of the full working area after clicking the green button, you can expand it manually, then it should remember that position. However, that would still leave the menubar across the top (hence, not full screen). Unless the web browser itself supports full screen (I don’t think any Mac browsers do), this will be as good as it gets.

    Actually both Firefox and Chrome does (haven't tried it in Safari, so not sure).

    I think I'll just have to continue to manually expand it, oh well :(

    Thanks anyway.

    Interesting, I seldom work in full screen and had not notice that Firefox and Chrome have that feature. Just checked, and Opera does as well.

    So with my new Imac 21.5 using the built in browser Safari, will I not get full screen with normal web pages such as Yahoo or the CNN.com as far as the width is concerned, ( I did try the zoom feature but still have blank spaces on the sides ) until I do try those other browsers, Firefox or Chrome ? thanks.

    Firefox and Chrome allow fullscreen via F11 (for Fn-F11). As far as I know the Terminal does not support full screen. I remember trying to get Terminal to go full screen a while back but never found away. I'm fairly sure it's not officially supported. I believe there are third-party terminal applications that do support this though. Perhaps look into them.
