Webcams are great tools to use for communication and security purposes. At times, you may want to have your view of your webcam fill your screen. This can help you view the content, especially when you are not sitting at your computer. The way you expand your webcam to your full screen depends on how you access the content. Some webcams require special software while others can be viewed through a browser or media player.

Skill level:


    Webcam Software

  1. 1

    Launch your webcam software.

    Open your webcam feed.

  3. 3

    Find the full screen mode control icon. If available, it is contained in the application's control panel. Without clicking a button, move your mouse over each button, because most applications will display the function of the button in a small caption. The icon typically is a monitor or two arrows going in opposite directions.

  4. 4

    Click the full screen icon. The view will expand fully in your screen. To exit the view, click the "Esc" key on your keyboard.

    Browser or Media Player Feed

  1. 1

    Launch your browser or media player and log into your webcam.

  2. 2

    Press the "F11" key on your computer. This will expand the view to your full screen.
