    I know you can launch IE with

    start iexplore URL

    ...but it always launches in the Desktop browser. Anyone know how I can cause it to launch in the full-screen IE app for Windows 8.1?

    My IE always opens on the desktop. Two options for full screen.

    [ol]
    [li]Use the command-line switch to open in kiosk mode: iexplore.exe -k ~URL~[/li]
    [li]Use the COM object to manipulate the browser (this will give you much more control)
    [/ol]

    $ie = New-Object -ComObject InternetExplorer.Application
    $ie.Visible = $true
    $ie.FullScreen = $true
    #You can also check out TheatreMode
    #$ie.TheaterMode
    $ie.Navigate("www.google.com")

    When I say "full-screen IE" I'm referring to the modern UI version of IE that comes with Windows 8 and above.
