Desktop Website Shortcuts

Hey guys,

I hope everyone is doing well!

Does anyone know how to achieve the following?
I’m trying to make a desktop shortcut to a local LAN IP site, how am I able to make it so this shortcut is always opened into a new window and full screen?

Many thanks for any assistance in advance.

I can’t think of another approach but a separate user profile for the specified website, and the website being that user profile’s homepage.

  1. Create a new profile to help Troubleshoot
  2. Make sure to check the option Create a desktop shortcut.
  3. Set the mentioned website as your homepage.

It sounds like you’re looking to make a PWA for this site. You’ll have to edit the shortcut in order to get it to open in fullscreen through. Please try the following:

  1. Visit the site you want to make the shortcut for.
  2. Once there, go to Menu --> More tools --> Create shortcut – make sure you check the Open as window checkbox here.
  3. Find the shortcut you just created and right-click on it, select Properties.
  4. Go to the very in the Target path and add --start-fullscreen at the end (with a space between the ending text in the path and the first two dashes of --start-fullscreen)

That did it! Thank you very much. Although it doesn’t work when connecting to local LAN IP’s, I fixed this by connecting to domain name instead. :slight_smile:

So, not too sure it this is how it works. However, the window opens with a tiny little top bar and not really true full screen. Am I doing something wrong?

This is the half full screen with the tiny little bar at the top

and this is true full screen no bar at the top

I’m not sure I understand – can you share a full screen shot of the windows as you did above so I can take a better look at what’s going on?

Yeah sorry, kindly find attached.

Using the Target --start -fullscreen, displays some black bars. Whereas, manually entering full screen removes the bars.
