Fullscreen mode on a PC?


I’ve got a spare small all-in-one touch screen PC on my kitchen counter that I’m using for SharpTools. So much faster than my Amazon tablet!

My question: Is there a method to open SharpTools in it’s fullscreen mode via some kind of shortcut on the screen? Currently it’s just a regular shortcut that points to SharpTools. When my computer automatically boots up in the morning, I must manually start it up, which isn’t a problem, it would remove one step. I currently use Chrome.

Any help is much appreciated. :slight_smile:


Most browsers will accept a --kiosk flag to open them in kiosk mode (fullscreen, no browser toolbars).

For example, the following post came up for a search for “chrome kiosk flag”:

My adjusted shortcut target ended up looking like:

"C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --profile-directory="My Custom Profile" --kiosk "https://sharptools.io/dashboard/view/XXXXXX?kiosk=true"

I found that if I already had the browser open viewing another page, then clicking the shortcut would just launch the browser like normal (no kiosk mode). I had to disable “Run in background” for Chrome and then completely close / kill Chrome before the shortcut would work as expected.

Since I don’t use Firefox, but have it installed, I tried the same thing on it and it worked well.

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" --kiosk "https://sharptools.io/dashboard/view/XXXXXX?kiosk=true"

:bulb: Make note of the fact that I appended the special ?kiosk=true flag to the end of my dashboard URL as well which tells SharpTools to open without the top navigation, menu button, etc.
