Ins and outs of kiosk mode? (too many things clickable)

Hello
Many years ago (10-15ish) I created a series of interactive kiosks for a local history museum. Most are based on html and the museum now wants to update the hardware they run on.
I'm working on the first of them now and I've got the kiosk ported over and an account set up to run in Kiosk Mode on a Windows 11 Pro system with a touch screen monitor but I'm finding that if a user touches an image instead of a button they're taken to an error page that they can't get out of. I do have the kiosk set to reboot if it's unused for 5 minutes which brings me back to the home page but it wouldn't help the user who caused the issue. I don't know if this is a kiosk issue or an html issue - there were probably the last coding projects I've done.
Also, how can I adjust the screen resolution in the Kiosk mode? Being something that was built years ago it is a much lower resolution and different aspect ration than the current monitor defaults to.

Hi, TPoirier, welcome to the ElevenForums 🙏
If an image embedded in a html page is leading to an error page, I’d be surprised if it was the kiosk. What error? 404?
Or a Kiosk error page?

    …still on a horse.
A File Not Found error. But all the files are there - the page loads with the embedded image just fine.

My question about the kiosk mode - the only thing that should be clickable is the button, I'm not sure why the background image is even an option. But you're right - this might be more of an html issue. In the last decade I've ended up on a whole new career path but at the expense of a lot of this knowledge.
