I started Chrome in kiosk mode, like this:

start chrome --kiosk "http://google.com" 

Now everytime I open Chrome it opens in kiosk mode and I can't find how to turn this off.

I tried some commands at http://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/ but no luck sofar. Looking for a solution that doesn't require reinstalling.

    Ah, I needed to close Google background apps... – Casper May 23 '14 at 12:59

Chrome doesn't exit kiosk mode until the application is shutdown. Close all background processes from Google in your Operating System's task manager or go to Windows' Task Bar in the lower right hand corner and right click on 'Google Chrome' or it's icon and click 'Exit'.
