Emulator Issues #9171
Emergency get-out-of-fullscreen key
There needs to be sort of "emergency escape" hotkey for big feature like fullscreen.
-Changed hotkey combination and forgot what hotkey for it
-Changed without original user's permission
-Bad hotkey combination without testing (happened to me)
I think hotkey is the only way to properly exit from fullscreen. Whatever happened to it, there will be a limited way out after going fullscreen without an "emergency escape" hotkey.

- Subject changed from Permanent Hotkey for Fullscreen to Emergency get-out-of-fullscreen key
- Status changed from New to Accepted
Hey, look, a new feature request that makes sense. That's rare.
Let's just hardcode Esc to always get us out of fullscreen. That's what I usually see for non-PC-game things that use exclusive fullscreen. (Either that or I have to use Alt+tab/Cmd+tab.)

I'm kind of okay with this bug.
Think about it: if people are shortsighted enough to remove the hotkeys for critical emulator features and they screw themselves from it, that's kind of like survival of the fittest, right? I'm being a bit sarcastic, but I do find this quite entertaining.
- Relates to usability changed from No to Yes
- Issue type changed from Bug to Feature request
- Priority changed from Normal to Low
- Status changed from Accepted to Questionable
I agree with JMC47 as well. Even if a user overwrites the fullscreen hotkeys, it's not like a user will be stuck - the operating system will have its own key combinations to get out of such scenarios, such as ctrl-alt-delete. So I'm going to remove the accepted status.
