FCP Full Screen Preview?

Hello,

So the other day I was playing around with FCP getting to know the menu better, while doing this I came across a full screen preview feature. Now when I actually want to use it for a project I cant seem to find anything anywhere allowing me to do that.

I feel like it should be in "View" under the "Video Playback" option. My only two options there are "None" and "Digital Cinema Desktop Preview - Main".

Its really making me feel stupid. I am not new to computers or macs in the slightest.
What in the world am I missing?
Thanks.

Try: View>Video Playback>Digital Cinema Desktop Preview- Main

...and then set View>External Video>All Frames.

Command-F12 is the shortcut for that. This is all in the FCP manual BTW.
