Tried these instructions

Open up Chrome's settings.
Under "Users" click "Add new user."
Give the new profile a name and picture. Make sure "Create a desktop shortcut for this user" is checked. Click "Create."
Right-click the newly-created shortcut and select "Properties."
In the "Target" field, add "—kiosk" (no quotes) to the end. Click "Apply."

However doesn't seem to work for me. Still see tabs at top of browser when I launch. Does anyone know how to properly launch Chrome in kiosk mode on Windows 8?

Did you set chrome to your default browser? This is Windows 8.1 right? –  Ramhound Feb 13 at 15:52

You should just add a starting page like this:

--kiosk "http://www.google.com"

if that doesn't work try this:

--chrome-frame  --kiosk "http://www.google.com"

When you have background apps enabled, you have to shutdown Chrome completely before mode change. Right-click on bottom right icon on a Windows status bar and click Quit. –  Xdg Apr 24 at 6:41
