This tweak forces Internet Explorer to open in full screen mode. That said, I''ve left this tweak here because a number of people have asked for it so they could remember how to uninstall it. While it does work initially, if you change the view while browsing, the second part of the tweak resets to "No" so that opening IE subsequently will launch it in normal view. Rather than using this tweak, I suggest using the F11 key which accomplishes the identical results.

Note: This is a two part modification. Complete both parts as listed below.

[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console
Modify/Create the Value Name [FullScreen] according to the Value Data listed below.
Data Type: REG_DWORD [Dword Value] // Value Name: FullScreen
Value Data: [0 = Disabled / 1 = Enabled]

[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\Main
Modify/Create the Value Name [FullScreen] according to the Value Data listed below.
Data Type: REG_SZ [String Value] // Value Name: FullScreen
Value Data: [Modify Value to (Yes)]
Exit Registry and Reboot
