Hi
I'm new and don't know the jargon so I beg your pardon.
Basically my work asked me to create a locally hosted HTML page for our directors showreels to be sent around on a USB.
All good. I'm actually pretty impressed I managed to get that far.

Now they look pretty and are all sorted HOWEVER (dun dun dun) my boss has asked if we can remove the address bar.
From my googling it seems that this is not a possibility.

IS IT!?
I just can't tell.

Also, if it is. Please pretty please break it down in layman's terms for me. I'm just proud I managed to get a freaking video to play.

THANK YOU

Nope. Even when you open a new window with window.open() the browser will display the URL.

Depending on what browser you're using there is a possibility: the Full Screen API. Note that this API is experimental, so don't write your web page in such a way that it depends on the functionality (the term to search for here is 'progressive enhancement'). Here's a tutorial which discusses the issues of getting fullscreen working in compatible browsers.
