Fullscreen mode allows Terminal to use the entire screen.
This mode is useful if you have a device with limited screen space and intend to work in Terminal for a long duration, or are working with long lines of terminal output. It temporarily hides the window decoration, allowing you to view more on the screen.
To enable fullscreen mode:
Press the menu button in the top-right corner of the window and select Full Screen, or press F11.
The menubar will still be visible in fullscreen mode unless you have hidden it.
If you have more than one Terminal tab open, the tab bar will be visible in the fullscreen mode.
To disable fullscreen mode:
Right click and select Leave Full Screen. Alternatively, press F11.
