How can I configure Ctrl for iPad to launch full screen without the side bar being displayed?

To load an interface instantly in full-screen mode when launching Ctrl for iPad, follow the steps below:

  • Ender the settings menu by selecting the gear icon.

  • Navigate to Preferences

  • Under Workspace Options, toggle Single Workspace Mode ON (this will make Ctrl for iPad launch directly into your workspace once the App is opened).

  • Next, navigate to Users.

  • Set a memorable passcode for the iPads Admin account.

  • Within the All Users ‘*’ account enable the Disable Sidebar option.

  • Upon exiting edit mode, the sidebar will be disabled.

  • Done!

To exit this mode:

  • Double tap anywhere on your workspace with three fingers to change account.

To hide the sidebar when logged in as an Admin:

  • Swipe to the left of the display with three fingers.

  • Swipe to the right with three fingers to make the sidebar return.

To lock down your iPad further to simplify the end-to-end user experience, you may want to look into Apple's Guided Access options within iPadOS settings.
