Anyone know how I can cause it to launch in the full-screen IE app for Windows 8.1? August 19, 2014 at 6:20 am #18137 Rob SimmersParticipant 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") August 19, 2014 at 7:27 am #18144 Mark NobleParticipant When I say "full-screen IE" I'm referring to the modern UI version of IE that comes with Windows 8 and above.
