Hi!

Well, I want to open an Explorer window with an URL, that is:
start iexplore http://www.myweb.com

Well, my question is, that I want to open that explorer window, but without buttons and menus, like in JavaScript, but using command line whit "start iexplore..."
It's that possible?, how?

Thx

Just typing:

start iexplore %url%

works for me.  For example,

start iexplore www.experts-exchange.com

Oh, wait, you said without buttons and menus so previous comment is not what you are looking for.

start iexplore -k www.myweb.com

will run it is kiosk mode, no buttons or menus.  Is that what you're looking for?

(Use alt+F4 to close IE).

Well, I want something like that, but no full screen, it's possible to designate a screen size?

Interesting question.  The screen size should be the last size you chose as you defined within your browser.  If I'm understanding you correctly, you may want to try this:
Open a new window, (and I assume based on what you said, that you open Maximized by default) ... click for the option to make it the smaller size, then as you hold CTRL drag the window to the size you want.  Open another new window .... close the first one and now again drag the new window size holding CTRL to the size you want.  Close the browser and start again and see if the new window which now opens is at the new size you defined by the CTRL+Dragging you did earlier.  Assuming this is so, as it should now be, re-enter the command asyscokid showed you above.

Good luck,

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

Hard to tell without feedback, but a split may be in order.
