When I open Chrome it only gives me 1/2 screen desktop. How can I get full screen on first click?

Open chrome full screen. Then close it using the X icon. Then open it the usual way and it should open the same way it was closed, full screen.

This time try maximizing the screen and then closing with either the menu button or CTRL+SHIFT+Q.


As Animal mentioned, Chome will typically restart with whatever screen presentation is in effect when it was last gracefully shut down.  You might also want to check in settings, advanced settings, and try unchecking "Continue running background apps while Google Chrome is closed." or, if you don't have tons of add-ons or you have sync set up, hitting the "Reset Settings" button to restore Chrome to all its default settings.  If you've got sync and then log in it should pull in all of the things you've set it up to synchronize, which should include add-ons and themes.
