Launching Power Apps in Full Screen 4 Simple Steps

Power Apps Launch

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to launch Power Apps so that it appear in Full Screen? Just your app, with nothing else around it. It’s super simple and here’s how you do it.


Here is our starting point for our app. It doesn’t look great at all does it? We can see the Power Apps logo in purple, in addition to the browser tabs, bookmarks and so on. We’re going to change all that to make the Power App launch in Full Screen.

LAUNCHING POWER APPS IN FULL SCREEN

Let’s make our Power App go Full Screen


First go and get your app URL from your navigation bar It’s the one that goes

https://apps.powerapps.com/play/e/c3d4a61f-c723-40c5-9d94-fd57a42d0826/a/90b22214-587b-43d4-a8ff-555052test123?tenantId=1d910c37-a429-4f35-ba1b-37d5btest1231&source=portal&screenColor=rgba(0%2C%20176%2C%20240%2C%201)

Remove everything after the question mark and then add ?

&hidenavbar=true

Then launch the app using this url. It will now look a bit like this.

Removing the Browser Toolbars


It’s probably not yet full screen, so hit f11 to go full screen.
