HELP! How to ESCAPE VNC full-screen mode!?

Dear Experts,

HELP!  I'm stuck in VNC full-screen mode, and I can't get out!  I'm on Windows 2000 Pro (on both client and server).  I've been to the VNC site, which says to do "Crtl-Esc Esc", but this has no affect.  HELP!  I don't want to reboot...

Try ALT and TAB to see if it allows you to swap program.

Also try CTRL and ESC.

Press F8 and you should get a list menu, uncheck the one that says "full screen" to return to normal view.

Alternative: You can also hit Esc.

Hope this helps.

Just letting you know that F8 didn't work for me. I found the ollowing website which did work:

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/dtg/attarchive/vnc/winvncviewer.html

...To leave fullscreen mode you must disable it from the menu, but the menu is no longer visible! So you have to bring the taskbar to the front by typing Ctrl-Esc Esc, and then right-click on the vncviewer icon.
