    Not sure this is exactly what you want, but for Internet Explorer, you can open it in kiosk mode(Full screen, no toolbars) via the command line:

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore" -k
    where is the url you wish to open.

    If that's IE, you can use the Kiosk mode of IE:

    "X:\Path\to\iexplore.exe" -k url

    For detail please see .

    For other browsers, it's a different story.

    The following command will start the url:

    Sure, but that has the address bar and status bar. Thanks for the comments but kiosk mode seems to "take over" the entire screen. What I am really after is to be able to open a normal window, with a normal frame and no menus, address bar etc much like a popup window. So far it does not look like there is a switch for that in windows unfortunately.
