Full Screen in Excel hides the toolbar, ribbon, and status bar and only shows the spreadsheet on the screen which means more space for the spreadsheet and thus more rows visible.

In Excel, there is always a toolbar, ribbon, formula bar, and status bar visible on the spreadsheet, which contains some space on the screen, and when required you can change the spreadsheet view from normal to full screen view by hiding that toolbar, ribbon, and status bar to create more space on the screen which makes more rows visible.

In Excel versions 2016 and above, you can use the keyboard shortcut to hide the toolbar, ribbon, and status bar to make the spreadsheet view a full screen view.
