F11 to enlarge on line page

Until a recent hard disk reformat, if I pressed F11, the bars at the top & bottom of screen would minimise and the Favourites column to the left would recede gracefully. Now, the Favourites column won't go away.
Please can someone tell me how to get back to the old set up.
Apologies if this has appeared twice. I entered it (or thought I had) a few days ago, but now can find no trace.

Have you clicked on the favourites at the top? (the star)

Thanks, Madboy. Certainly I can get rid of the favourites column by closing it, but I promise you it used to disappear all on its own when I pressed F11. Pressing F11 again would bring back all the bars at top & bottom plus the favourites.

Yep, mine works, but I didn't know you could do that until this thread.I know it doesn't solve your problem but thanks. Have you tried a system file scan? Start/ Run/Type sfc /scannow you will need your OS disc. Good luck.

What browser are you using?

right click an empty part of the toolbar and click 'auto-hide'

move your mouse to the top of the screen and it will appear again so long as you hover the mouse over that area.

Nobody figured it out yet? I tried yesterday with no joy. You have to do this in Fullscreen mode. With the favourites or folders showing, press F11 to go into fullscreen mode. click here to see the icon you need to press to autohide the favourites/folders panel. Although you can right-click on the TOOLBAR to autohide it, you cannot do this with the favourites panel, and the autohide button is not available unless you are in fullscreen mode.

Thanks everyone.
Tim, I use Internet Explorer.
Huggy71, Right clicking empty part of toolbar didn't produce autohide. As Pesala pointed out, you must be in full screen mode to see it.
Pesala, Your first suggestion clears all the toolbars etc., but the Favourites column still remains on the left. Your "click here" produces an "autohide" item but clicking on that has no effect at all. I've probably missed something ?

Rawprawn, Sorry, I didn't acknowledge your idea. System File Scan sounds a bit complicated to me, a rather elderly chap flirting with the 21st century. I can't help thinking that there's just a simple adjustment reqd. to get me back to where I was before my virus driven reformat.

Pesala is correct. However, you need to click the icon then click elsewhere on the webpage and the favourites will move off screen.

If you just click the button and wait, nothing will happen.
