How To Enable Full Screen View When Using Putty

It can be useful to have full screen SSH sessions when using Putty to manage remote systems.

To do this :

1. Open Putty and select “Session” and simply load the profile of remote system which needs to be connected to.

3. Now connect to the remote system as per the profile selected and hit Alt+Enter. The result will be a full screen view (very retro DOS like screen). To exit full screen, hit Alt+Enter again.

Happy SSH-ing.
