Hi, it appears that the chrome plugin prevents the browser running in kiosk mode when using the "-- kiosk" command? Is there any way around this? Thanks.

You can read about how to use Eventghost on the offical documentaion : ... ng-plugins

Basicly there are 3 Steps :
1. You add the plugin
2. You create a Makro
2.1 You add the plugin action from "Chrome Browser Events" to the makro ( for example reload tab )
3. You Trigger that Makro with an event

You basicly drag and drop events that eventghost picks up into the macro ... (Events are those yellow thunder / lightning symbol )

if you added the plugin "keyboard" you can drag and drop the keyboard events into the makro and trigger your makro with a hotkey ( for example ctrl + r)

Idk anything about kiosk mode .. the plugin is only accessing tab info ... so idont see how it should interfere with anything.

I did some testing. The chrome extension does prevent Chrome from running in kiosk mode. Not sure what is going on there but it starts running fine in kiosk mode when I remove the plugin. I will do some more research to see why this might be happening, but unfortunately that won't work for me. Thanks.

Thank you so much for your efforts.
Your plugin helps me to realize my plans.

But after switching from the EventGhost_0.4.1.r1722 version to EventGhost_0.5.0-rc6, your plugin constantly throws an error and skips the necessary events.
What should I do?
