This question already has an answer here:

On the Google Chrome permissions page, it says that you can change Fullscreen permissions.

However, when clicking the permissions, I can only change to allow on this page or ask:

I want to be able to always allow on any site, like some other permissions have:

Is this possible? I also want to get rid of this:

EDIT: I found out the reason Chrome prompts is because this is a security issue where sites could possibly impersonate a browser environment.

I got it to work on my machine by using Google's host pattern matching.

  1. Open Chrome's Content extensions paste this into an address bar: chrome://settings/contentExceptions#fullscreen
  2. Edit an item to be *://*/* and save (on my machine it disappeared from the list but worked the way I wanted.) (per @Jaex comment below try just * I used both, but I tried the * first and assumed it didn't work when it disappeared from my list.)

Thats it, it worked immediately for me.

I used just * and it worked fine. –  Jaex Jun 5 '14 at 18:30
    
Worked beautifully. Thanks! –  Chris Keele Jun 25 '14 at 1:18

When it disappears from the list, I wonder how you can revert. Maybe through a config file somewhere? –  snapfractalpop Jul 16 '14 at 16:53

If you are on windows just edit your Chrome shortcut properties:

Where it says target:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

add --kiosk to the end

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --kiosk

It will now run in full screen mode each time you start it.

Sweet, do you know of a way to get rid of the "You have gone full screen" message? –  Chipperyman Jul 5 '13 at 7:11
    
From what I know it's not possible to remove that message for now. Could be available in one of the next updates though since people are demanding to remove it. –  easwee Jul 10 '13 at 8:05
