At boot-up I like to start an application automatically in full window

Linux distribution:
Linux version 4.1.42-hmi5x-mx6-1.2.5

In the distribution I have a browser "chromium" that I like to launch at full window at start up or slightly after.

Need some help here..

I think you can put it in as the last line of Xorg.conf (or the equivalent), and you may even be able to set the window size. I take it you're in X.
