Start chrome full screen and open url

Recommended Posts

Got a remote that uses autioitscript to control windows.

I need to start chrome full screen and open an url on keypress but since I cant figure out how to do it.

 

I tried 

Run("C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Gorkde\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "--start-maximized")

but as soon as I enter anything in the second "" it doesn't open chrome at all (without it it does).

Also I dont know how to also open a url on start and I dont know if start-maximized is fullscreen

 

Any help?

You are passing "--start-maximized" as second parameter to Run. 

Put everything into the first parameter.

It seems you simply have to pass the URL to open as last parameter.

Why did you drop -start-maximized?

ok, got it thanks for your help!
The problem was it just opens in fullscreen when you have no other chrome instance open already.

Run("C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Gorkde\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --start-fullscreen http://youtube.com/tv", "")

you can use -kiosk but then you need ALT F4 to close it
