Hi.

Just decided to install Linux Lite to replace xubutu on an older laptop. During live-cd session (yes, need to backup some stuff before I go ahead on install) I have used Terminal / rsync in order to backup some files. However I stumbled over this really stupid issue. I made terminal fullscreen, but cannot get the way out, so to speak.

Found some Linux forums various places on the internet where people have asked similar question using some variant of Ubuntu, where hotkeys like F11, Ctrl+Alt+Enter was mentioned as solution. However none of those works in Linux Lite terminal window.

Therefore - my question: How do I get out of full screen terminal window - whitout exit?


Thanks

I won't let an old, but fully functional computer die just because some company tell me that they won't make no more security updates to their OS. Thanks Linux :)
