Hello,

I've set my workspace to fullscreen and can't reverse it back to default.

I've tried Ctrl + Alt + F; Shift + F and a few other random combinations and nothing works.

I can't properly exit the program or access the top menu bar and when I restart the program it's in Fullscreen mode from the start.

My Lightroom is up to date, I'm running it on Windows 10, Surface 4 laptop.

Has anyone had similar issue?

If you hover the mouse slowly right new the top edge, does the menu bar temporarily unhide?  If so, try the menu command Window > Screen Mode > Normal.

 

Otherwise, try resetting LR's preferences:

LR sometimes soils its preferences file, and resetting it can fix all sorts of wonky behavior. That article explains how to restore the old preferences if resetting doesn't help.
