Pressing F11 again or hitting ESC will get you out of full-screen mode

Fullscreen mode was added to be able to view the image in a neutral
environment w/o being distracted by any user interface elements.
Adding a menubar would completely ruin this effort.
The fact that you can edit the image in full-screen mode and that we
even decided to allow you to tweak what gets hidden and what not is
just an additional nicety and I'm actually tempted to remove it.
