IE 7 fullscreen issue RRS feed

  • Question


  • Hello Everybody,

    I am trying to open IE 7 browser  in full screen (i.e. kiosk mode) through javascript. When I click on any link in to open in a  full screen window, it is not opening in full screen. It is displaying  the titlebar and maximize and close buttons.
    Does anybody find the similar problem, please help me in this regard.


    Thanks in advance...

    Regards,
    Kiran.
