Entering full screen traps me - cannot minimize/full screen/windowed mode window (MacOS M1)

It’s been a few days since I upgraded the IDE, and I simply cannot exit full screen. Not sure how else to describe it… there’s normally 3 buttons:

Red - close window
Yellow - minimize
Green - full screen / windowed

Yellow and green are always disabled.

I’ve tried unplugging all monitors, closing and reopening Cursor, etc.

Once I go full screen, I cannot escape without closing and reopening the app.

Anyone else experiencing this?

MacOS Ventura
M1

Could you send a screenshot? Maybe you’re in Zen Mode?

(Ctrl + Shift + P => “View: Toggle Zen Mode”)

Here is a screenshot

I have toggled zen mode a few times and it does not go away. You can see that only the red button is enabled. The only way to resize this window or minimize is to close the whole app and reopen it.

Edit: Just updated Cursor to the latest version. Still the same bug. Here is the version details

Let us know if there’s anything else we can share to help you reproduce the bug.

For what it’s worth, it’s possible to go into the very top menu and exit full screen mode through that menu. It’s just not possible to do it via those three buttons.
