"Full Screen" in IE7 is not really full screen

    When you press F11 to go to full screen mode (or any other way of going to
    full screen), the status bar and scroll bar still shows. There should really
    be an option to hide these (yes, including the scroll bar) in full screen
    mode. When you press "Full Screen", you expect the webpage to fill the whole
    screen _without_ any disturbing elements, like the mentioned status and
    scroll bars. Check out the way the Opera browser did this. There, "Full
    Screen" means just that - full screen.

    And by the way, it might be an idea to make the "Advanced" part of the
    Internet Options a bit more easy-to-understand, it looks a little "cluttery"
    at the moment (like with IE6, it looks quite the same).

    Actually if you wait about 2 seconds you'll see the bars at the top autohide.
    It's pretty cool if you ask me.

    Then if you put the mouse up there they fly back down.

    No. The bottom and right side scroll do not disappear even if the image is
    well within the bounds of the screen. This is NOT full screen and this is NOT
    good especially for people that work with a ton of pictures for their
    business and or personal like me. If it's not fixed in final I will
    definitely go back to IE6 or use another browser.

    I did not mention the top bar. I was only speaking of the scroll bar (to the
    right) and status bar (bottom, if you have enabled it). ;-)

    The autohide works great on the primary monitor. If iexplorer is running on
    the 2ndary monitor the top toolbar will not re-show after autohide.

    3rd party toolbars (i.e. google) aren't shown in autohide mode either.
