Windows 10 Kiosk. Possible to enable Right Click Menu in explorer ?

Hi All,

I am setting up a Windows 10 Kiosk that will only be used as an AV airgap workstation. I have restricted it down to the user only being able to run McAfee Endpoint Security and Windows Explorer (with limited folder access)

I want the user to be able to right click a usb drive and choose "Scan for Threats" but the right click is disabled in Kiosk mode.

Is there a way to enable the Right Click Context Menu in Kiosk Mode ?

Thanks

Dave

Hi Dave,
Unfortunately, there is not a way to enable Right-Click Context Menu in Kiosk Mode.
What’s more,
Ctrl+Esc to Open the Start screen even Windows logo key itself have been blocked in Kisok Mode.
Lets’ check the Kiosk Mode’s original intention:
Kiosk mode device signs in automatically and only runs one Microsoft Store app in full screen inside a restricted local user account (above the Lock screen) that prevents anyone from accessing the desktop, switch apps, or change settings.
Obviously, Right-Click Context Menu and Scan for Threats related to change settings.
