    which is exactly what I need but, I can’t get it to do it on start up? I am sure this is simple, but if anyone can shed light on this, it would be greatly appreciated! Ever been to a mall of something and seen a terminal with a touch screen ? Well thats what kiosk mode is for.
    It runs chrome in full screen, chromes kiosk mode isnt perfect because it still allows some key combinations it shouldnt like bringing up the debug console but they could be suppressed with an extension.
