When working in the full-screen mode, the browser interprets the [Esc] key as a trigger to close the full screen.
Only the first item in this list below which recognizes the keyboard shortcut, will perform an action linked to it.
- Operating system (OS).
- The window in focus (the browser),
- Parallels Secure Workspace.
This is why some shortcuts get picked up before they reach the Parallels Secure Workspace input.
- If the application can run on a single screen: open the web browser and navigate to the Workspace.
The trick is to use the [F11] keyboard button. In most common browsers this will put the browser in "kiosk" mode (full screen without any browser toolbars; it will also be in front of the end-user device's Microsoft Windows task bar).
Pressing it again will exit the kiosk mode.
Important: [F11] will NOT work as long as the input is recorded into an application session.
To exit this browser kiosk mode, put the focus on a browser element outside the session.
For instance: click on the (collapsed) sidebar before pressing [F11] (or click the button to show the sidebar again if it's hidden).
- Go to System Settings > Manage > Applications. Look for the application. Press the [Shortcut buttons] button.
Create a button that will emulate the Escape-button.
The name can be anything, the keyboard combination should be set to esc .
When opening the application in the Workspace, enable the shortcut tool bar to use this button instead of pressing [Esc] in the application. Do so by clicking the polygon and choosing the keyboard button (see red arrow).
