how to auto start googlechrome in full screen mode automatically

I’m running an Announcement system thru the browser n I need to auto start Chrome in Full Screen mode (F11) every time the PC start. (Yes, full screen mode not the maximize mode.) I use Chrome because it has a very nice full screen mode with big viewable area plus i do not like Internet explorer!

To auto start Chrome in Full Screen Mode every time, follow the steps below:-

  • Right click on any of your Google Chrome icon and select “Properties”
  • Copy the value in the “Target”, it should be something like this:-
  • Now Create a shortcut in your Desktop. Right click on Desktop and choose “Create Shortcut”
  • Paste the value in the “Location of the item” and add “–kiosk” behind the value. So it should end up like this:-
    "C:\Users\techiecorner\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --kiosk
  • And, click “Next” till finish
  • Now u can try to double click on the shortcut you just created and it should now auto start Chrome ( in Full Screen Mode
  • In order to start Chrome every time my PC start, i copy this shortcut and paste it into my “Startup” folder (Start -> Program -> Startup)
  • Restart your computer and you will see Chrome will auto start in Full Screen Mode
Happy Browsing!
