Hello everyone,

I am trying to put an special application in kiosk mode, as it is not a UWP app, I used Shell Launcher to replace the default shell and replace it with my own app.

My question here is : can the app, I put in kiosk mode using Shell Launcher, can call write.exe in order to generate a document, or can the app open other tab (while still being open of course because I know ShellLauncher does not support app that launch an other one and quit)

Thank you for your help
Have a great day

    Hi,
    The same warning/requirement "Shell Launcher doesn't support a custom shell with an application that launches a different process and exits. " has been noted as well under following article:

    Use Shell Launcher to create a Windows 10 kiosk
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/configuration/kiosk-shelllauncher

    ----------

    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.

    Thanks,
    Jenny
