Full Screen Start / Option

I may just be missing this, but ... is there a way to have Plex start in Full Screen Mode? I have been able to map a remote key to start Plex (excellent!), just want it to start Full Screen.

    Sorry, checking back in on this one - as I'm launching Plex using a remote control, and then can't go full screen (with the remote). Tried creating a shortcut set for Maximized ... no joy.

    Any luck with this? I'm trying to do the same thing. Thanks!

    Seriously...no answers? Anyone at Plex team?? This should be so simple to do and not have to wait 9 months for an answer. A baby arrives in that timeframe!

    Not to be too annoying but if you managed to have a remote button to start plex, you could have another remote button that simulates Shift+Win+Enter which will force the app to go into full screen? As you are probably using some sort of script that starts plex at the press of the button I wouldn't be surprised if you could add this combination with a delay after plex start to have it in full screen mode?
