I am trying to lockdown computers running windows 8.1 Enterprise/Standard with a touch screen attached to it.
What I'm trying to achieve
Have a kiosk user with only access to a web browser. The web browser should be set to only display a specific website and any users interacting with the screen should not be able to visit any other website or somehow browse the system with the help of touch gestures.
What I've tried
Assigned Access – Works very well except that I can't seem to remove or disable the address bar in the IE metro app. If I could disable it I could probably set my website to default website in IE Metro and everything would be OK.
iexplore -k http://my.website.com – This is almost perfect, no address bar and only access to the specified. BUT, the touch gestures are still active and the user can swipe from the right and access the system sidebar.
Software I've tried
Classic Shell to deactivate all Windows 8 touch gestures, didn't work.
Start8 as well, didn't work. I can still swipe from the right.
I don't have any Synaptics touch drivers so that wont work.
Created a DWORD value "DisableCharmsHint" and set the value to 1 under:
I read somehere That I should edit this as well:
That key doesn't exist.
Tried the following:
Didn't work either.
