Set up a single-app kiosk (Windows 10) | Microsoft Docs

Set up a single-app kiosk

  • Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education
A single-app kiosk uses the Assigned Access feature to run a single app above the lockscreen.

When the kiosk account signs in, the app is launched automatically. The person using the kiosk cannot do anything on the device outside of the kiosk app.

 Important

User account control (UAC) must be turned on to enable kiosk mode.

Kiosk mode is not supported over a remote desktop connection. Your kiosk users must sign in on the physical device that is set up as a kiosk.

You have several options for configuring your single-app kiosk.

Method Description
Locally, in Settings The Set up a kiosk (previously named Set up assigned access) option in Settings is a quick and easy method to set up a single device as a kiosk for a local standard user account.

PowerShell You can use Windows PowerShell cmdlets to set up a single-app kiosk. First, you need to create the user account on the device and install the kiosk app for that account.

This method is supported on Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education.

The kiosk wizard in Windows Configuration Designer Windows Configuration Designer is a tool that produces a provisioning package, which is a package of configuration settings that can be applied to one or more devices during the first-run experience (OOBE) or after OOBE is done (runtime). You can also create the kiosk user account and install the kiosk app, as well as other useful settings, using the kiosk wizard.

This method is supported on Windows 10 Pro (version 1709 and later), Enterprise, and Education.

Microsoft Intune or other mobile device management (MDM) provider For managed devices, you can use MDM to set up a kiosk configuration.

If..else..fi – Linux Shell Scripting Tutorial – A Beginner’s handbook

if..else..fi allows to make choice based on the success or failure of a command. For example, find out if file exists (true condition) or not (false condition) and take action based on a condition result.

           if test var -eq val
           then
                       command executed successfully
                       execute all commands up to else statement
                       or to fi if there is no else statement

           else
                       if command failed then
                       execute all commands up to fi
           fi
