There is a mini-toolbar for this purpose.

But this feature is an interesting one, and is complementing to the existing mini-toolbar.

As already said, there is a mini toolbar for that purpose. And I think such a feature is a bit dangerous. The guest shouldn't be able to switch into fullscreen himself for security reasons. Mount/unmount device is probably less dangerous but the mini toolbar already handles this as well.
