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?
- Firstly, run the Group Policy Editor by clicking the Start button and
choosing Run... or pressing Windows Key + R and typing
gpedit.mscfollowed 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"
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.
