    Did some googling and I can't figure it out, it's like nobody ever asked the question. Anyone know how to make the visualizer completely fullscreen (no controls showing)?

    Escape from New England
    Turn on visualizer: ⌘ T
    Turn on full screen: ⌘^F (command-control-f)

    Used to be just ⌘F in previous versions of iTunes - I'm not sure when this changed.

    Edit: Apparently this is the system-wide full screen key combo, as it works in other apps too now!

    I'm have the exact same question.

    At night it is relaxing to have the visualizer running with a mainly dark screen but The bright grey control panel is quite a nuisance. Anyone know how to hide it?

    Far from here
    Start playing the movie, then go Full Screen : Ctrl + Cmd + f

    Or click the "Full screen" double arrow on the right side of the control panel :

    completed instructions

    what was already written is mostly correct, you hit command + F or the full screen button once in the visualizer.... then once all that remains is that tool bar at the top you press CONTROL + COMMAND + F and it'll get rid of that tool bar, giving you a completely full screen. happy visualizing.
