Hi there,

What do you mean by "view full mode" ?

If it is a full screen mode (when only editor area is visible and takes full screen) then it is not currently available in PhpStorm (except, maybe, native MacOS Lion mode). I think (although unsure about this) that it was present in one  of the versions (somewhere in v2 I believe) but there were some issues  with that and it was removed (see comment here:,

In any case:

If you just want to maximize editor area, so it takes as much space as possible, then uncheck the following:

  • View | Toolbar
  • View | Tool Buttons
  • View | Status Bar
  • View | Navigation Bar

Thank you so much. I love phpstorm.
