Thank your for your quick reply.

I've tried the above script which is work. However, as I said before, the javascript function doesn't work if I use the above script to open IE.

javascript in my page:

---------------------------------------------

top.window.opener = top;

window.open('','_parent','');

top.window.close();

window.open("http://www.google.com","",

"toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0,resizeable=0,fullscreen=1,left=0,top=

0");

---------------------------------------------

To Authenticity:

Thank you. Can I hide the navigation bar?? Because I want it to be used in somewhere like cafe kiosk.

To zac23:

Thank you. It works on my machine too. But I don't want a theater mode but a Kiosk mode.

Thought the problem is still here. anyway.

Thank you for both of your help~~ :)

Add .Fullscreen = True and the Navigation bar will be hidden as well.

But how do you then end the IE?
