how can I start Internet Explorer 10 always in kiosk-mode?

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 P Oct 29 '13 at 14:36
• I 've found a usefull link which explains how to do it, but it's in German youtube.com/watch?v=rBvYy7D3hZk – fepi Oct 29 '13 at 14:54
• @fepi: Did my answer work for you? – James P Oct 29 '13 at 22:33

• 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

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.

To start IE in kiosk mode, run iexplore.exe -k "C:\path\to\\webpage.html"

From Microsoft:

To start Internet Explorer in Kiosk mode, click Start, click Run, type the following command in the Open box, and then click OK

iexplore -k page

where page is the Web page address for the Web page that you want to appear when Internet Explorer starts. If you do not specify a Web page in the Open box, Internet Explorer opens your start page. Note that the Web page that you specify can be a Web page on the Internet, on your computer, or on another computer on the network.
