One of my first articles on Samanathon.com was Internet Explorer 7′s Kiosk Mode, and it is consistently in the top five most popular pages so I though I should cover some more of IE7 command-line switches!
You can pass these by opening the Run dialog, add a space and the switch of your choice:
Starts IE7 in kiosk mode. It will be full screen without the tool bar, address bar or status bar.
To exit, simply hit Alt+F4!
You can enter a web address or even a local one. Although, if you’re going to enter a local address, just type the path directly!
Runs IE7 without any add-ons. You will get this warning:
All Internet Explorer add-ons, such as ActiveX controls or toolbars, are turned off. Some webpages might not display correctly.
This one can be used with with a URL:
iexplore http://samanathon.com -extoff
Doesn’t display your home page. The browser’s tab will say “Connecting” for some reason, but it isn’t.
