How do I Turn Off Caption and Taskbar While Running A particular App?

Hi Folks:

My apologies if this is a double post. Mod, please remove this if it is.

Until an hour ago I was able to start up my favorite video game, World of Tanks, full screen, with no caption taking room at the top and no task bar taking room at the bottom, and no frame. Just video game corner to corner.

If I want to get out of the video game temporarily, I hit and I have my desktop.

Now, probably after I hit a key or mouse button I shouldn't have, the video game has an annoying border, with caption and task bar distracting me and taking space for no purpose.

Captions for each window are handy when multiple applications occupy the screen, and the task bar, are good things, but there are times I don't need to see them.

How do I turn the captions and task bars and window frame off while running a particular application?

Thanks Larry

Thanks MechKB:

That was an option for the game, as you said.

I thought it was a Windows thing, because I know I didn't go into the Menu-Settings-Graphics menu item to change that check box.

It's working as I want now.

Odd, because I don't see any reference to a keyboard shortcut to change the windowing.

I appreciate your assistance.
