The second option is pressing Command-Control-F on your keyboard. This will also instantly take your page into full-screen mode without having you move your mouse or trackpad cursor around too much.

Finally, if neiher of those options work for you, try selecting “Enter Full Screen” from the “View” menu in Safari’s toolbar at the top of your computer screen. That should do the trick as well!

As you can see, getting rid of the split screen on Safari and returning it back to full-screen mode is quite easy! All you need is a few seconds and one of three methods availale for doing so—clicking the green button at left of its toolbar, pressing Command-Control-F on your keyboard, or selecting “Enter Full Screen” from the “View” menu in Safari’s toolbar—and then sit back and enjoy browsing in full-screen mode!

Split View is a feature of iPadOS that allows you to use two apps side-by-side at the same time.

To activate Split View, open two apps and drag the split-screen bar in the middle of the screen. You can also use gestures like holding down on an app icon and dragging it to the left or right edge of your screen.

Troubleshooting Safari Not Going Full Screen

It’s possible that your Safari isn’t going full screen because your System Preferences are set to close all windows when you quit an app. To make sure that Safari remains in full screen when you quit it, open System Preferences, select General, and uncheck the box next to “Close windows when quitting an app.” Once you’ve done this, Safari should remain in full screen when you close it and re-open it.
