1. Kiosk Mode

You can use Kiosk Mode in Windows 10 & 11 Pro, which will allow you to run only one/multiple apps in a safe mode. However, from our experience, if you provide remote access to the machine (e.g. with Zoho Assist or TeamViewer), and turn off Edge Swiping (see below!!!) then you do not need to set up Kiosk Mode for Windows

  1. Edge swiping - turn it off!

If you use Windows machine and a touchscreen, then the edge swiping in windows will be automatically on. This means, that anybody can exit the Kiosk App if swipes the edge of the screen. To prevent that, you should turn off the edge swiping in group policy editor.

If you're running Windows 10 v1803 or later, you'll need to do the following to disable edge swipes:

In Windows, right-click the Start button and select Run.

  1. Type gpedit.msc and press Enter. If you can't find gpedit, here's an alternative solution.

  2. Navigate to Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Edge UI for system-wide, or User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Edge UI for current user.

  3. Edit "Allow edge swipe" and set to Disabled.

  4. Click Apply then OK.
