I've read you can start Google Chrome in kiosk mode in Windows by using the argument --kiosk.
I know how to do this on Windows, but how can I do this on Mac OS X?
And how can I run Google Chrome with the --kiosk argument on startup?
This works with macOS:
/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --kiosk
ls /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS
It is probably even better to use the open command (in case the application is not located in the Application folder). E.g.: open -a "Google Chrome" --args --kiosk http://www.example.com
open -a "Google Chrome" --args --kiosk http://www.example.com
In AppleScript, paste the following text:
do shell script "/Applications/Google\\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\\ Chrome --kiosk"
Save it as an application and add it to your startup items.
/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --kiosk --app=http://domain.com
You can create an alias to open websites or files via command line. To do this, you can include at the end of your ~/.bashrc, ~/.bash_profile or ~/.aliases the following lines:
# Google Chrome Alias
open -a "Google Chrome" "$1"
