Windows – How to replace the logon shell with iexplore


This is related to my previous question. Apparently I didn't know what I thought I knew..

Like said in my last post, I am looking to make a kiosk where when it starts up, it goes straight into iexplore without loading up explorer.exe.

I set the current logon shell to iexplore, but that didn't work.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] Shell"="iexplore.exe"

perhaps somebody could help me back on track?

well, that can't work unless you add the path to iexplore.exe to the environment variables, or change the value of 'Shell' to:

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE

you may have to press ctrl + alt + del to logon.
