I'd like to launch PowerDVD8 from a shortcut and have it automatically start the DVD/BluRay and display in fulllscreen mode. Is this possible?

PowerDVD does not have command line parameters like that, but Zoom Player does: – MaQleod Apr 15 '11 at 6:14

  1. Right-Click your PowerDVD Shortcut, choose Properties
  2. In the Shortcut tab, go to Target
  3. Go to the end of the text for the Target and add /fullscreen_mode_on (put this outside of the quotes if there are any)
