We are evaluating using the Windows 8.1 "assigned access" mode to set up a kiosk application for a building lobby. I've got the RTM running on a virtual machine and am shocked to discover that, while it does force the user into the one program and keep him or her there, this mode does not seem to intercept ctrl-alt-delete! I can send the machine a ctrl-alt-delete and am brought to a page that would allow me to:
- Log out
- Log in as another user
- Change the kiosk account password (if the original password was known)
- Change accessibility settings
This seems like such a huge flaw in a mode intended for kiosk applications that I'm wondering if I'm just missing something. Is it just assumed that when you're running a kiosk the keyboard would not be attached? Is it an artifact of running under a virtual machine? Is there some way to keep it from reacting to ctrl-alt-del?
