Open Chrome with no toolbar etc

I am looking to use KBM to open a specific url in a new Chrome window that has no chrome (toolbar, address bar, status bar etc). I can’t seem to find anything online. Any ideas?


Sorry I am not very technical. Would I have this run as a shell, apple, or javascript in browser?

The syntax is:
–app= --flag

For example:
google-chrome --app= --force-app-mode

How do I know which flag will hide what I want, so many options!


Try it. It’s the programmer way.

Ha, well its not working and not sure why.

I might have found another solution. My main goal is to open the new compose window in gMail in a floating window (with no toolbars etc). It does so if I click on any mailto link in Chrome. Is there a way to replicate that in KBM?

Hey Brandon,

Command-line stuff on the Mac can get pretty sticky – especially when you don’t know what you’re doing.

Have a look at this thread.

It doesn’t do exactly what you want, but perhaps it’ll do for now.

There might be a way to activate mailto generally in Chrome, but that will probably be a job for JavaScript – and @ComplexPoint is our resident expert on that.
