Is there a way to toggle between full screen and a window viewing with FreeNX nomachine?

According to the ArchWiki FreeNX page:

  • Ctrl+Alt+F toggles full-screen mode
  • Ctrl+Alt+M maximizes or minimizes the window
  • Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Escape is the emergency exit and kill-window shortcut, in case the remote session is not responding

This source also mentions the "Magic Pixel". When in full-screen mode, you can get back to your local desktop by clicking the "Magic Pixel" on the top-right corner of the screen. Just move the mouse cursor to the top right and left-click.
