Hi everyone,

I have an intranet application developed with servlet running in windows xp and i want it to really look like a desktop application by removing or permanently hidding the tools bar,menu bar and address bar of the explorer when a user logs on.

I feel this could be achieved using applet but its complexities scares me alot. Please, if i can simply achieve this through the windows registry or any other means please explain to me how!

You could have a launch screen the user goes to before accessing your app. Then the link could set the parameters for the new window (your application) to anything you want.
