# Getting started

# Home page

You can enter full-screen mode by pressing OK or using the Right Arrow button on your remote control. To exit full-screen mode, press the Left Arrow or the Back button.

Your TrueConf Server administrator could also fill the address book for you in the TrueConf Server control panel.
