We are having difficulty creating a Windows Imaging and Configuration Design (ICD) provisioning package for Zoom. We created a single app pkg with Zoom.exe and applied the package. It launches right up and works great.

However, we have two issues:

1) If the configured standard user is at all computer savvy, they can do a CTRL-ALT-DEL and get into Task Manager to run anything else. How can we lock down everything else, except for Zoom, for a single user?

2) When the Admin User logs in, all we get is a command prompt. Can we only apply the kiosk mode to a single user and when another user logs in, their regular Windows profile launches as normal?

    Shell Launcher and Keyboard filter are features in Windows 10 - at least in Pro and Enterprise versions. IoT/Embedded OEMs use these features along with UWF and other lockdown features to create devices using Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC. Microsoft provides WMI APIs to control Shell Launcher and Keyboard Filter, but they don't provide utilities based on the WMI APIs. The free utilities are only a suggestion. You could create PowerShell scripts if you prefer.

    You need to enable Shell Launcher and Keyboard filter features in Windows 10. Keyboard filter can be configured to block hot keys such as CTRL+ALT+DEL. Shell Launcher can be used to launch Zoom.exe as a shell for the systems. There are only WMI APIs for configuring both features. My Keyboard Filter and Shell Launcher utilities can help with the setup.

    If this is for Zoom rooms, I suggest that you contact Zoom on how to setup the software. Also, you should look to use System Image Manager to create a custom Windows 10 OS.

    @KT
    How did you accomplish this?
    I'm trying something similar.. need to provide laptops (not on our domain) to users that only have access to Zoom/BlueJeans. I just tried to use WICD to create a provisioning package that installs/launches Zoom. I installed the package on a Surface, which caused it to reboot, etc.. but now all I get is a black screen w/cursor, no matter what I try to login as (admin, etc). I can C+A+D and get to Run, but thats about it.
