F11 full screen mode substitute

Hi all,
I've made a multimedia calendar like this one:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspber ... tificatio/
but instead of using buttons I used a touchpanel glued on top of the old laptop screen. RPi3 is running on Jessie Light with Chromium (I had problems with correct display google calendar - I need to be log on to the google account) and Florence Virtual Keyboard.
I would like to run it most of the time in full screen mode and from time to time watch some Youtube videos, but there is a problem, in full screen Florence keyboard is not visible and I cannot press F11, so i tried Uinput to simulate F11 but running Python3 code in background causing overheating RPi. Code was running on startup trough add line in rc.local. I did try to implement in html virtual F11 button on my calendar website to get of the full screen mode but due to safety reasons web browsers not supporting this feature any more.
Do you guys have any suggestions how to emulate F11 key? I'm not really keen to use any mini keyboard.
Thank you
Slav

It will allow me to open web browser in full screen mode, but my problem is how to get back from full screen mode.
What about :

but with only 6 keys?
