I don’t know about you but Yosemite’s penchant for going full-screen (and no menubar) doesn’t suit me at all. I like my menubar. If you find yourself in full-screen mode just press the Escape key on the keyboard and things will go back to normal. Now you know why I titled this “Escape from full-screen mode” instead of “How to get out of full-screen mode.”
