If I take it out of full screen mode I see the navigation but also the control buttons (minimize/maximize/close) which I don't want.
So how do I either use full screen mode with navigation or non-full screen with navigation but no control buttons?
Here is my code:
window.open(www.google.com, '_blank', 'location = 1,resizable=0,scrollbars=1,fullscreen=1,toolbar=1,menubar=1');
window.open(www.google.com, '_blank', 'width=1800,height=950,top=25,left=25,location=1,resizable=0,scrollbars=1,fullscreen=1,toolbar=1,menubar=1');

Seems to be how full screen mode works. If you move the mouse to the top the title bar should show up with both the "previous" button and the minimize/maximize/close button.
It seems you want to force users to stay in full screen mode ? You can do so on your own machine in your company hall by using the "kiosk" mode but you don't have this level of control on users visiting your site from their own machine.
Or be explicit about what you are trying to do. Full screen mode is to *allow* browsing without the window "chrome" but not intended to lock users into this mode.
Edit: or it looks like suggestions for PWA or hybrid apps ie in this mode you should show your own navigation UI ?

Actually this is for a kiosk machine so users will not have a mouse to use. They want the users to stay in full screen mode when this window pops-up and be able to navigate. I have a timeout set for 3 minutes so user would not need to control functions.

So it should be a command line option that you have to use when the browser is launched. For example http://www.coolheadtech.com/blog/chrome-kiosk-mode-introduction
The browser UI shouldn't be visible and the whole navigation needs to be visible on screen (or I assume it will use a touch screen).

It appears that example is in google chrome. We are using IE 11and that is not likely to change.
So I need some type of solution for IE.

This is similar for IE. Plus if I remember you can change a registry so that the shell is IE launched this way so that it starts at startup and have IE To be automatically relaunched when exited. This way you are really in "kiosk" mode.
