Windows 7: 'function' key to toggle large screen/normal screen ?

'function' key to toggle large screen/normal screen ?


A neighbor's Vista-run desktop allows for an 'F' key (possibly F10) toggling of screen sizes (with/without toolbars).

Is our newly acquired laptop (Windoiws 7 Pro) capable of same?

If so, how to go about it?

Thank you

F11 toggles full screen view which hides tool bars etc.
