Autostart and full screen on Windows

A browser, displayed in full screen

An information screen-display is actually a web page (constantly updated), which is displayed in full screen on a screen on the wall. You open the browser and paste the screen address to the screen you want to display. Then change to full screen by pressing F11.

Autostart

We have a VisualBasic-script that you can download, which will start the screen-display automatically when you turn the screen on. This works well on most Windows machines.

  1. Install Google Chrome on the device that you wish to display the screen content on (if not installed) and deactivate warning regarding Internet Explorer not being the default browser.
  2. Log in and select screens in the menu on the top left .
  3. Make a note of the screen address http://app.pintomind.com/SCREEN CODEABC123. Example: http://app.pintomind.com/ABC123
  4. Open the browser on the device that is going to display the content and enter this address + .vbs in the address-field. For example: http://app.pintomind.com/ABC123.vbs This will start the download of a script/file which will be saved in the downloads-folder on the machine. 
  5. When the script is downloaded, move it to the startup-folder in the start-menu. Do not change the name of the file. With the script in the startup-folder, the information screen will start automatically in full screen when you turn the device on later. To end the display after starting the script, click ALT + F4.
