Hi,

I just upgraded to the newest version of Slimserver and now it does not open in its own dedicated browser like it used to but my default internet browser.

Is there any way to get the old dedicated browser back? Thanks.

Is there a way to customize a shortcut (so switch on IE?) to make it open in FULL SCREEN mode?

You can create your own shortcut to IE (lives in C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplorer.exe) and supply the -k option

so it would look like

"c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -k http://localhost:9000

in the shortcuts Target field.

That will put you into Kiosk mode, which is largest full screen.

Ctrl-W or Alt-F4 will close the window.

dropping this .lnk into the Slimserver Win32 package would probably be A
Good Thing(TM)... should I open an ER?

Open if you want. Consider though that many use alternate browsers (firefox, opera, mozilla, etc.), and your shortcut only works for IE. Also, with a single keypress, you can get into Kiosk mode.

my shortcut? I don't even have a Windows desktop :) I'm just suggesting
that a shortcut may reduce the number of messages in my inbox. Anyway,
looks like the Windows users have something called slim tray already
anyway. http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1733
