I found the following post which describes how to toggle a web page to fullscreen mode using keystrokes.
Post: Enter fullscreen mode using javascript
It works well.
However my need is to open the web page by default in fullscreen mode.
I failed to modify the code and use requestFullScreen function.
How can I do it?

Hi,

fullscreen mode [function -> requestFullscreen()] cannot be called automatically because of security reasons.

check out more details:

Another example: (with keystroke)
