F11 will open the secondary window. Add the Shift key on Windows to put the secondary window into Full screen, on Mac you need to add both the Command + Shift key. Note: the secondary window will only go to full screen if it is on a secondary monitor.
To move between views on a secondary monitor (Grid, Loupe, Compare and Survey), simply add the Shift key to the shortcuts keys that you already know! (G, E, C and N). Shift + \ will display the filter bar.
