There is a FullscreenMorph in Polymorph-Widgets that we use. StandardWindow 
and subclasses support openFullscreen along with a few other bits to help 
out in deployed applications (see class comment).
To change the host-windows title you will need to change your Squeak.ini 
(trickier in Linux...).

Preferences class>>disableProgrammerFacilitiesWithoutWarning may also be of 
some help for deployed applications ;-)
