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.

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.

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.
