Accounts Set up a Kiosk in Windows 11


  • Staff
Kiosk_banner.png

A single-app kiosk uses the Assigned Access feature to run a single app above the lock screen. 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.

If the kiosk app is closed, it will automatically restart.

When you are in kiosk mode, you can press the Ctrl + Alt + Delete keys to exit kiosk mode.

See also:

This tutorial will show you how to set up a single app kiosk in Windows 11 Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions.


The kiosk feature is not supported in the Windows 10/11 Home edition.


You must be signed in as an administrator to set up a kiosk.

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. Apps that run in kiosk mode cannot use copy and paste.



EXAMPLE: Sign in to kiosk account, and kiosk app in kiosk mode

You can configure the kiosk account to sign in automatically at startup if wanted.

3 Click/tap on the Get started button for Kiosk. (see screenshot below)

Home editions of Windows will not have a Get started button since the kiosk feature is not supported in the Home edition.

Hello mate, :-)

One method is to make sure the user is a only a standard user and not an administrator.

Hello mate, :)

One method is to make sure the user is a only a standard user and not an administrator.

If I do that, a lot of functions become locked out. There must be an administrator account to perform many functions.
I just want to set (or delete) something to permanently lock out the ability to accidentally convert the computer to a kiosk.
"No matter how foolproof you try to make something, some fool is going to find a way to foul it up anyway."

I'm not aware of a way yet to disable the kiosk feature. :(

For some reason I cannot start the kiosk mode? I'd like to set it up and I'm having the same problem as the user who posted it here: Redirecting

As you can see there, the reply given is not very helpful and there is no further activity.

Any help or insights is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello stooge44, and welcome to Eleven Forum. :-)

Just to verify, are you signed in to an administrator account when trying to set up a Kiosk?

Yup I am. That was the first thing I checked :-)

Odd. As a test, create a new account, make it an administrator, sign in to this new account, and see if the button is there for this account.

Based on @Ghot I shouldn't even bother making a test account?

I've googled it quite extensively and it seems that more then a few people have come across this problem but no one has found, or at least, mentioned a solution :-(

I would make a test account.
I just posted pics of what a vanilla Windows 11 shows.

The test account is a way to troubleshoot this issue. Follow through with it. :-)

I made a test account, still no button :-(.

Could it have something to do with when creating an account I select no for all the options offered such as sharing the location, sending diagnostics, etc..

Probably not. I selected no, not, skip, dismiss, for everything.





/edit

You might want to do an In-Place upgrade. It fixes Windows problems, and leaves everything else untouched.







Here is the short version of the In-place upgrade tutorial...

DISABLE non-Microsoft:
a) antivirus software
b) firewall software
c) drive encryption software

Make a full OS backup with a program like Macrium Reflect (free)
Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free

Go here and get the Windows 11 ISO (use the 3rd option), and save the ISO to your desktop.
Download Windows 11
The ISO must be downloaded in the same language as you are using in Windows, to be able to keep your Programs and Files.


000000 Win 11 ISO.png


Right click the ISO image and choose: MOUNT
Open File Explorer and you will see a new drive letter. It will "look" like a DVD optical drive.
Double click the new drive letter to open it.
Find setup.exe and double click it to start the in-place upgrade.

Choose the Keep personal files and apps option.

After it's all done... to UNmount the ISO image, right click the new drive letter and choose: EJECT.


The ONLY thing you will lose is some of your personalizations. Your programs and data will be intact.

Even stranger is that I set up 2 machines yesterday fresh out of the box, the intent was to make them a kiosk for just basic browsing and the use of MS Paint. On BOTH machines I don't have the button. I started with doing all the updates on the main admin account, then I created a standard local account but when I tried to start the kiosk, the button is not there.

I just saw your edit about doing an in-place upgrade. it's something to think about. But what are the odds of 2 separate machines, albeit the same make and model, having the same issue?

That I can't answer. I understand what you are saying, but I see no computer specs entered in your profile.

I've posted the question in other places and someone said this:

The documentation about kiosk mode is really explicit that Windows 10, it's only available on "Pro" or "Enterprise" editions, but not home. But for Windows 11 it's ambiguous and I'm wondering if the same holds true and their documentation just isn't clear about it. I still haven't heard back from the people I asked about it though.

I've posted the question in other places and someone said this:

I can confirm that kiosk is not supported in the Home editions of both Windows 10 and 11.

You will not see the Get started button in the Windows 11 Home edition. :(
