View full screen in power bi desktop

Hi, I am using Power BI desktop on a Surface Pro 4.  I want to demo some dashboards in full screen. I cannot find how this is supposed to be done. I want literally just my dashboard and nothing else. The surface has a beautiful display and I want to maximise the wow factor for my customers. Showing design menus is just visual clutter. Please help!

 

Thanks

 

Jamie

Hi @PrescribingInfo

 

The best you will get is by minimising the 'fields' and 'visualisation' panes, and clicking the little icon in the in the corner next to sign in (see image below).

 

Also ensure the 'view' on your report is set to 'fit to page' or 'fit to width'.

 

Let me know how you get on.

 

Cheers

Hiya Shebr,

 

That is way better, especially if I hide the ribbon. I would still rather the Fields and Visualisations panes could be got rid of entirely - but this is close enough! Thank you.

Having the June 2018 version, I do not see that drop-down arrow next to Sign in. Any reason why this is?

HI @Anonymous ,

 

The latest power BI verison is Feb 2019. You can update your Power BI desktop.
As I can see arrow in Feb-2019 Power BI desktop version.
You can try Ctrl+F1  to see to see full screen in Power BI desktop.


Also, see my screenshot below.

As a footnote - an alternative method is to download the Power BI Mobile App, which will allow a full screen view.
