Kiosk mode is not enough RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I'm trying to configure something similar to a strengthen kiosk mode: I enabled "force full screen" so all bars are invisible, I setup the homepage, but uisers also should not be able to modify any other thing in IE nor navigate in other sites. I disabled almost all features and shortcuts using the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions but some of them still work, like Ctrl-E that is Browser History that let the user access to history and to installed search providers. Is there a way to limit this?

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I think you want to restrict users from changing settings in Internet Explorer.

    If so, I find out a method to achieve it by registry online, please be careful while working in the registry. I advise you create a backup of Registry before you proceed.

    There is article introduces How to Restrict Users from Changing Settings in Internet Explorer Options Window, please refer to for some prompt.

    In addition, I know a group policy to hire the Menu Bar, also can limit user’s behavior.

    Please go to Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet Explorer. Find out Turn on menu bar by default, double click it and select disable.
