create shortcut for Kiosk Mode

There seems to be some confusion on how to best setup Chrome kiosk mode and here’s what worked for me. The kiosk feature will allow the chrome browser to start in Full Screen Mode (F11) and will not allow the user to enter any URLs or select any menus. It sort of locks down the computer to just use Chrome and the website you specify, however, a simple ALT and F4 will close down the browser if a keyboard is connected to the computer. This is perfect for digital signage solutions or for Kiosks.

Here’s the steps to setup the Kiosk Mode.

Create a new shortcut by right clicking on your desktop, select new then shortcut.

Enter “C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –kiosk http://www.businesslegions.com

NOTE: there are two minus signs before the kiosk word

Give the shortcut a name

name shortcut chrome kiosk

name shortcut chrome kiosk

I tested this and it work without any issues. Just restart all instances of Chrome and make sure you don’t have Chrome Running in the background or simply restart the computer.
