Im calling an internet explorer session
using the following code:

Dim browser2 As InternetExplorer
'create the object
Set browser2 = CreateObject "InterNetExplorer.Application")
browser2.Visible = True
'open the web page
browser2.Navigate ("http://www.url.com")
browser2.FullScreen = True

The problem is when I specify fullscreen for the browser the address bar, buttons and menu bar dissappear.
How can I get a full screen browser but retain those items?

Thanks

try this:

Dim IEobj As New SHDocVw.InternetExplorer


Private Sub Form_Load()
    IEobj.Navigate "www.opengl.org"
    IEobj.Visible = True
    SendKeys "{F11}"
End Sub

Azrasound your solution has the same effect as givenrandy. This is all very well but it still doesn't look the same
as a maximized windows explorer.

I personally dont like the theatermode.

Any thoughts?

maximized?  oh thats a different story...

Option Explicit
Private Declare Function ShowWindow Lib "User32" (ByVal Hwnd As Long, ByVal nCmdShow As Long) As Long

Const SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED = 3


Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim retval As Long
    Dim IEobj As New SHDocVw.InternetExplorer

    IEobj.Navigate "www.opengl.org"
    IEobj.Visible = True
    retval = ShowWindow(IEobj.Hwnd, SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)

End Sub
