Hi.

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

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

For detail please see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=154780 .

For other browsers, it's a different story.

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 http://www.google.com
where http://www.google.com is the url you wish to open.

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.
