Full screen mode I can't escape from!

I've obviously pressed something...I can't get rid of the full screen. Pressed escape etc. Help!

Hmm, sounds like you're describing the Inspector. Did you perhaps undock it then somehow maximize that, or at least make it as big as your monitor? Can you try simply resizing its window? If not, can you post a screenshot?

Also, if it is the Inspector, pressing F8 will close it. Then maybe Help / Revert to Factory Settings.

Not sure if you figured it out but I had the same issue, googled it, found your thread. And then started playing around. I’m on a 13” Mac laptop. It seems if you hove the cursor up near the very top of the screen, the MuseScore menu appears. Click on View (one of the menu buttons), click on “Exit Full Screen” all the way at the bottom of the list of options. Let me know if that worked for you.

I just had this same exasperating problem. I didn't see the answer in the previous responses. I stumbled upon the solution in MS4 when I happened to move the cursor to the top left of the screen, and then the menu bar reappeared and I was able to see the View menu and "Exit Full Screen".
