Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

Yes, you can lock down windows devices into multi-app kiosk mode using Hexnode. Please note that this is supported only on Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise and Educations editions(v1709+). Also, the kiosk works only with Windows Store apps/UWP apps and Desktop apps.
Before associating the kiosk policy to the device, you have to create a local user account on the device and install the apps to be set in Kiosk mode. Customize the start layout, which involves the arrangement of apps in the way you want the user to view them. Once this is done, please navigate to Policies-> Windows Kiosk Lockdown-> Kiosk Lockdown-> Multi App, enter the Kiosk account name and select the app to be added in the kiosk mode by clicking on the ‘+’ icon.  Import the Start layout.xml file. Associate targets and save the policy. The device will now be locked down into kiosk mode.

Kindly refer our help doc on locking down the Windows devices in multi-app kiosk mode for more info.
