Windows Internet Explorer kiosk mode.

Cause

We have oldest PC with 2 Gb DDR2 with Windows 10 x64, also we have Virtual Desktops Infrastructure. As best solution, we must use this PC’s for VDI only.

Resolution

When user’s login in (with some “local service account“) they getting this:

After login entries – they can connect to VDI desktops and RemoteApp. If user press ALT+F4 – they get black screen.

So how to get this functionality?

1. Run “regedit“;

2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon;

3.Replace “Shell” from explorer.exe to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore -k https://vdiurl;

4. Don’t forget create “local service account” and reboot.

P. S. System login now very fast (local user instead domain user), user’s entries they credentials only for VDI login in.
