Saving screenshots as maximized screen

I am trying to record a video of a screen capture of some Google Jamboards and when I play the saved version it appears in a minimized screen. I can manually maximise the screen but I want it to open by default as maximized. I have previously done this but do not know what has changed so it now opens as minimized. I can’t find a setting for this or any help about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    @Barry Hancill I'm not sure what you mean by "minimized" and "maximized" - would it possible for you to post a picture of your final result?

  • In the attached document the first picture is a screen shot of how the video plays by default.

    The second image is if you click the maximise button on the top right. I want it to play by default in this maximised format. Earlier videos I created played by default like this, not sure why they don't any more or how to change it. Let me know if you need any more information.

    Many thanks for your help.

    I checked with our team, but there isn't currently a way to make a video open directly into a fullscreen (maximized) mode within your browser. I think that internet browsers mostly require a user interaction (clicking a button, selecting F11 on the keyboard) before letting the video go fullscreen.

    If you download a copy of your video, the controls will not appear when you open it. Also, it is possible to embed a video into a webpage and not have the controls appear (and you can control the size of the player on the page.)
