Hi,
I have setup a device with Windows 10 Pro to work in Kiosk mode to show my company website page.

The setup is such that windows kiosk opens Microsoft edge that shows my website page without URL bar or browser controls so the user cannot exit or change the page assigned to the kiosk.

This setup works fine but i would like to replace the Microsoft edge "hmmm, can´t reach this page" with my custom html page stored in a folder on the device.
This would be useful to show a nice branded page to customers in case the kiosk device is without internet. How to accomplish this?
Is the only way to create a custom UWP app that shows different pages if device has internet connection or not? I would prefer a faster option than developing custom App.

    Hi @JMic

    From your screenshot, it seems that you're using Edge Legacy. Please download and install the latest version of Edge and configure Edge Chromium to use kiosk mode.

    For the detailed steps to configure Edge kiosk mode, you can refer to this doc: Configure using Windows Settings. If you want to show your page without URL bar or browser control:

    1. In step 7, choose As a digital sign or interactive display.
    2. In step 9, enter your site url in the input box. You can host your website in IIS localhost, then it doesn't need internet connection. You can refer to this doc for more information about how to host a website in IIS.
