    Hey, Thanks for posting the question.

    In the case of a single app kiosk, the device can be locked down into a Windows Store app or UWP app.

    Whereas the multi-app kiosk can have Windows store apps, UWP apps, and Desktop apps.

    To lock down a Windows device into a kiosk mode:
    Please navigate to Policies–>New Policy–>New Blank Policy–>Kiosk Lockdown–>Windows Kiosk Lockdown. You can choose from the ‘Single’ and ‘Multi’ app kiosk options based on your requirements. Click on configure. Enter the kiosk account name and click on the plus icon. Select the needed apps. Please note to associate policy targets and save the policy.

    To exit the kiosk mode on Windows devices enrolled in Hexnode:

    Method 1: Disassociate the policy

    • Navigate to Policies and click on the desired policy.
    • Go to Policy targets and click on remove next to the device on which kiosk is to be disabled.

    Method 2: Archive the policy

    • Navigate to Policies tab and select the kiosk policy.
    • Click on the Actions button and choose Move to Archive.

    Method 3
    If you are not able to disable the kiosk mode on the device using the above methods, press CTRL+ALT+DEL. This will lock the device screen and you will be able to sign in using a different account. Please note that the previous account will remain in kiosk mode.
