    i think you have to use a different program or something, not totally sure, but i think... check this.... www.flashflashrevolution.com ...on that site, there is a link to a fullscreen version on the left column, it goes full screen, and you get out using Alt+F4... It says something like powered by Somethingor another... but yea, i think you need that to make it full screen...

    Depends on what you mean exactly by fullscreen. A full "naked" fullscreen (with no borders at all!) is only possible (to my knowledge!) with IE. Other browsers will keep fullscreen borders and the standard 3 top-right icons.
    That said, the browser window can be set to go fullscreen on a body "onLoad" javascript function, or you could open a fullscreen popup window with your Flash movie embedded in it.

    From where are you trying to close the window? From the "fullscreen.swf"?

    :D I bet smilies dont work in the subject line huh

    Ok, I'm coming in on the tail end of this one, and I'm a little confused. (having sought the answer to this myself last week)

    How exactly does this work? I've tested with spotty results across different machines and versions of IE... It seems like in IE6 on WinXP you can just tell the browser to go to suchandsuch.swf, and it just opens the swf without the need for an HTML page. ie5 on Win2000 seemed to choke.

    As an aside, I found out that you can run IE in full screen from the command line by typing:
    PHP Code:
    run iexplore.exe -k mycoolsh*t.swf 
    (note the space after "exe" and "-k")

    This is obviously not helpful for use on a webpage, but it's a handy bit of trivia for running a swf (or any HTML page for that matter) as a local kiosk. (that's what the k stands for.)

    Anyone else have ideas or experience with fullscreen swf's?
    [a.fun>b.fun ? trace("do(a)") : trace("do(b)");
