Provided you are using Firefox web browser the top left of the screen icons minimize - partial screen - full screen - x out.
Similar to what windows has. Here is a handy reference for Ubuntu : https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/index.html
Look under desktop on the link, this will explain in detail. Hope this helps.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
I'm still having the issue so I suppose there has to be a setting for the monitor that I haven't been able to find yet.
The monitor I'm using is actually a tv monitor, not a computer one so my guess is I'll have to dig a little deeper.
As soon as I find the solution, I'll post it up here.
Thanks once again.

Back again!
I managed to find a way out of it. At first I had chosen 1920x1080 resolution which led me to face this issue. Now I chose 1600x900 resolution and set my picture format to "wide screen" through my tv monitor's settings. Not 16:9 format because images got stretched out. At least this was the case with my Philips tv monitor. So, now I have a full desktop scale view with images shown at the correct size.
Thanks once again for your time.
