Why is F11 different than setting Full Screen in Group Policy

I have a system that boots up and runs Internet Explorer with 2 tabs.  If I then press F11 the window goes into "Full Screen" mode, but I can run the mouse to the top of the screen to show the Address Bars, so I can switch tabs.

However, if I set the "Enforce full-screen mode" group policy and then start the system, when IE goes into Full Screen mode I cannot get to the tabs.

Is there a way (through Group Policy) to set the same full screen as the F11 version so that I can access the two tabs, but so they go away if I don't run the mouse over them?

Thanks,
Eric

All set.  I found that if you change the registry instead it works.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

Set to Yes

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
