It should be possible to write a function which copies the current plot into a PDF file by using 'dev.copy2pdf'. Then run a system() command which opens that PDF file and switches to the full screen mode.

This leads to a, maybe marginal, request. I know that one can write a tag into a PDF file which controls whether the PDF should be opened in full screen mode automatically or not. Maybe it's worth to implement such an option in R?
