I 'll use a win7 computer as an information terminal. After its startup internet explorer is starting up in kiosk mode with the wanted side. The use of hotkeys like windows button, ctrl c etc is disabled. When I click for further information on this page (which isn't created by myself) the browser starts a new window and the whole ie-menu is available. How can I setup this browser, that every ie-window is starting up in kiosk mode?

So the page the kiosk is pointing at has a link that is causing a pop-up that has all the browser controls available in it? Perhaps use a pop-up blocker, or better, don't use a standard browser? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 29 '13 at 14:25
@fepi: How are you disabling hotkeys? I don't think kiosk mode does this itself. – James Oct 29 '13 at 14:36
I 've found a usefull link which explains how to do it, but it's in German – fepi Oct 29 '13 at 14:54

  • Firstly, run the Group Policy Editor by clicking the Start button and choosing Run... or pressing Windows Key + R and typing gpedit.msc followed by Enter
  • In the left hand pane go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer
  • Find the entry Enforce full-screen mode and double-click it
  • Set it to Enabled and click the OK button

Group Policy Editor

Note that users can still open new windows but they will lack all menus etc.

Also I would say that the security of such a system still isn't great. If your users have access to a keyboard and mouse connected to the machine then they might still be able to bypass your efforts to secure it.
