Cycle through Screen Modes with F key in Illustrator

At the bottom of the Illustrator Toolbar is a button that contains 4 modes.

The last 3 of these modes, that can be cycled through using the F key, are…

  • Normal Screen Mode
  • Full Screen Mode with Menu Bar
  • Full Screen Mode

The 4th mode, Presentation Mode, can be accessed from the View menu and also via the keyboard shortcut Shift + F. This mode completely blacks out the screen around the image and does not display any artwork that extends beyond the artboard boundary. The Escape key will exit from Presentation Mode.
