Applies styles to an element when in fullscreen mode.

  • Use the :fullscreen CSS pseudo-element selector to select and style an element that is displayed in fullscreen mode.
  • Use a <button> and Element.requestFullscreen() to create a button that makes the element fullscreen for the purposes of previewing the style.
<div class="container">
  <p><em>Click the button below to enter the element into fullscreen mode. </em></p>
  <div class="element" id="element"><p>I change color in fullscreen mode!</p></div>
  <br />
  <button onclick="var el = document.getElementById('element'); el.requestFullscreen();">
    Go Full Screen!
.container {
  margin: 40px auto;
  max-width: 700px;

.element {
  padding: 20px;
  height: 300px;
  width: 100%;
  background-color: skyblue;
  box-sizing: border-box;

.element p {
  text-align: center;

  font-size: 3em;

.element:-ms-fullscreen p {
