August 1st, 2022 by Admin

Any way to start up Microsoft Edge always in full screen mode? In Windows 11, you can use Microsoft Edge in full-screen mode, hiding the toolbars, URL address and status bar together. In this tutorial we’ll show you 2 simple methods to start Microsoft Edge in full screen on Windows 11

Method 1: Start Microsoft Edge in Full Screen via three-dot Menu

  1. Once Microsoft Edge is open, click the three-dot icon in the top right corner. When the drop-down menu appears, click the “Full Screen” button which is at the right of the Zoom option.

  2. It will activate a full-screen browsing experience. To exit full screen mode, move your mouse near top of the screen or simply press F11.

Method 2: Start Microsoft Edge in Full Screen with Kiosk

If you want to make Microsoft Edge automatically open a web page in full-screen, kiosk mode can be of help. Follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the Microsoft Edge shortcut on your desktop, and then select Properties from the context menu.
  2. Under the Shortcut tab, append the following string to the end of the Target text box. Replace with the URL of the website you want to open.
    --kiosk --edge-kiosk-type=fullscreen

  3. Click OK. The next time you double-click the Microsoft Edge shortcut and it will always start Microsoft Edge in full screen by default. To exit kiosk mode at any time, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

Another way of launching Microsoft Edge in kiosk mode is to press the WIN + R keys together, then run the following command:
msedge.exe --kiosk --edge-kiosk-type=fullscreen

That’s it!
