How to Make Google Chrome Hide Address Bar

google chrome hide address bar I want to increase the screen real estate for my Chrome app. The Address Bar is useless in a Chrome App and I was wondering if there was a way to disable it. yes there is way to do this here are the possible solutions of how to this.

Solution 1

You can run Chrome in application mode.


Chrome.exe --app=


/Applications/Google\\ Chrome --app=


google-chrome --app=

This removes all toolbars, not just the address bar, but it will definitely increase your real estate without having to use Kiosk mode.

Solution 1.1

This is current as of Chrome 55.0.2883.87 m (Jan 2017). This is for Windows, not sure this works on Mac.

If you create an Application Shortcut on your Desktop, it will remove all tabs, menus, etc, and give you a completely clean view.

To do this:

  • Click the menu, and go to “More Tools” → “Add to Desktop…”
  • Make sure to check, “Open as window” (see screenshot)

Solution 2

you can use F11 to toggle the fullscreen view, altough it may not be the desired user experience. If you want to change tabs while in the fullscreen mode, you can press CTRL+TAB and CTRL+SHIFT+TAB.
It can also be done with a chrome extension. I'm not aware of any extensions that do this right now, mainly because google chrome does not provide any APIs that would allow developers to hide the toolbar. Despite that fact, the toolbar can be emulated, since chrome extensions can have access to opened tabs.
