Google has released another update for the Chrome, versions 18.104.22.168, aimed at dev version users, which brings a Kiosk Mode to the browser along with the usual bug fixes and stability improvements. Kiosk Mode in Chrome is inspired by the very same option in Internet Explorer, which hides the toolbar and status bar and runs the browser in a full screen mode.
Here’s how to active Kiosk Mode in Google Chrome
- Make sure you are using the dev build of Google Chrome. If not, you can download if from here.
- Right click on the shortcut for Google Chrome, go to properties and add this command line switch “—kiosk” as shown in the screenshot below:
- Launch Google Chrome using this shortcut, and it should open in full screen mode without any toolbar or status bar. To exit it, you’ll have to press “Alt + F4”.
Kiosk Mode currently works on only Windows and Linux and not OS X.
( To run Internet Explorer in Kiosk Mode, use the switch “-k” )
