    On my 21.5 iMac, how can you enlarge FaceTime to full screen? Clicking on the top left green + circle doesn't do it either.

    Help search wasn't helpful.

    Thanks

    I'm not so sure it can be full screen. I've never tried it before.

    I am using lion and a MBA so this might not be accurate:

    Because it is in portrait orientation it can only be as large as the height of the screen. If the person you are chatting with goes into landscape it should enlarge to the full screen.

    Thanks for the input..

    This may sound corny but on the show Two and a Half Men the screen is in full display when Allen talks to his son via FaceTime.

    Was the picture on the screen in portrait or landscape?
    See here how in portrait it can not occupy anymore of the screen:

    On the tv show the picture was in landscape, on my iMac it's in portrait.

    Based on the ringtone on the show they use Skype, not FaceTime.

    If the user you are factiming with (this I think only works on a IOS device) flips there phone over it will switch to landscape and take up the whole screen.

    Good catch......I can live with portrait now that I know FaceTime won't go into landscape.
