Default HELP! Mame++ is stuck in full screen gui mode...

Curiosity got the best of me and I selected the full screen option from the file menu for Mame Plus plus, and now the gui is completely stuck in this full screen mode, the only way I can exit the program now is to use the start key on my keyboard and manually close the program, or ctrl alt delete it away. And it has saved it like this so whenever I open the program it stays in full screen. I tried looking in the ini file and I dont see anything portaining to this. I have been trying for HOURS to find a shortcut key to bring the display back to normal, and have even been googling every possible way to say "stuck in mame plus plus gui" and cant find anything on this. Seriously, what the hell were the programmers thinking by not making a workaround for this?? I understand why the option is there, for ppl who want to hide windows for making an arcade cabinet, but what about when you want to use the program like normal? PLEASE, can someone help me get the program to run in a normal window again? The help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

EDIT: I wanted to also mention that all that ever comes up in google about this is about full screen mode for when playing the actual games, which is not what I need help with. Ive tried hitting the alt + enter and it does nothing in the gui itself. Just wanted to clear that up.
