# Getting rid of the little (+) buttons for a clean window

I wanted to have a second window (with a 3D View) totally clean for projection.

Anyone have any idea how to get rid of the little (+) buttons on the side, the ones that show up when you press T or N key to hide the side toolbars?

Editing the code and compiling Blender again, I guess. Could some one help me or point me the way.

• You mean the Toggle Window Fullscreen in the menu. – João Oliveira Oct 11 '18 at 19:39
• You still can not get rid of the (+) at the side – João Oliveira Oct 11 '18 at 19:41
• Your totally right . – João Oliveira Oct 14 '18 at 6:14
• I was trying in blender 2.8 and did't do anything. – João Oliveira Oct 14 '18 at 6:14
• In 2.8 is Ctrl-Alt-Spacebar. Many thanks – João Oliveira Oct 14 '18 at 6:18

2.79

1. Duplicate the area into a new window.
View ‣ Duplicate Area into new Window
OR
Duplicate a window with ⎈ Ctrl⎇ AltW
Info area ‣ Window ‣ Duplicate Window
2. Then, Toggle Area Fullscreen ⎇ AltF10. View ‣ Toggle Fullscreen Area
3. Eliminiate additional 3D View icons in the User Preferences ⎈ Ctrl⎇ AltU under InterfaceDisplay (on the left)

2.8

Although the manual says the same as in 2.79. The Toggle Fullscreen Area is somewhere else in 2.8 (2018-10-12).

3D View Menu: View ‣ Area ‣ Toggle Fullscreen Area. ⎈ Ctrl⎇ AltSpace

• The hotkey tooltip says something about ActionZone, which I don't understand though. – Leander Oct 14 '18 at 8:28
• in 2.8 still not totally clean, on the bottom left, the Last Operator thing is still there. – João Oliveira Oct 15 '18 at 9:57
• @Joao Selection doesn't toggle the Last Operator thing. A simple A keyboard press will remove it. – Leander Oct 15 '18 at 10:03
