    Shell Launcher doesn't offer a log off mode. The options are: do nothing, restart shell, shutdown, or reboot. You would have to create your own mechanism to log off when the shell is closed.

    I would recommend using Shell Launcher V1 over Kiosk Mode. You can enable shell launcher either in an Answer file or via Control Panel->Programs and Features->Turn Windows features on or off (found under Device Lockdown) Microsoft provides a WMI API and a PowerShell script to configure Shell Launcher. I have some Shell Launcher Utilities based on these WMI API to make the set up easier.

    Hi @Naveen Vuppala ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!
    Please read this document about Kiosk Mode: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot/iot-enterprise/kiosk-mode/kiosk-mode
    Hope this would give you some idea. Also, you'd better use Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.

    Best regards,
    Seeya
