Is it possible to make maps full screen or at least reduce some of the top and bottom clutter?



We're trying to make some NOC displays and in turn make maximum use of screen real estate. Is there a way to toggle a map to full screen? Alternatively, is it possible to turn off the headers and footers and possible leave only a "home" tab or just the Home tab row?

Dear Jim,

adjust the size of your map to fit the resolution of your screen (see your other question).

Then, open the Get HTML tab in PRTG's Map editor and use this URL to view the map. In your browser, switch to full screen mode (this is hotkey F11 in many browsers).

Excellent. Thank you. One followup question: will a map displayed this way auto-refresh or will we need to set a refresh interval using the browser?

Please use the refresh symbol in the bottom right corner to set auto refresh to 10s, 30s, or 60s. There, you can also force a one-time refresh now. This refresh method uses JavaScript.

If the browser viewing the map does not support JavaScript, the map will be refreshed in a fixed interval of 60s using the following line of HTML code:

<noscript><meta http-equiv='refresh' content='60'></noscript>
