Windows 11 devices can be configured as kiosks to provide a locked-down, single-purpose experience for users. Kiosk mode turns Windows 11 devices into fixed-purpose devices, providing an opportunity to create a specialized experience for public or enterprise use.
For example, kiosks are useful in public places such as museums, libraries, or restaurants where self-service is essential. In an enterprise setting, kiosks can support employee training. Subsequently, restricting these corporate-owned devices for enterprise use ensures employee productivity and efficiency.
Mobile Device Management (MDM) overcomes the above-stated drawbacks. In addition, MDM provides an additional layer of security and convenience to managing Windows 11 kiosks in various business scenarios such as:
To set up a Windows multi-app kiosk, it is necessary to create a Windows 11 kiosk mode profile.
1. Navigate to Device Profiles & Policies > DevicesProfiles
2. Click Create New Profile on the upper right corner of the screen
3. Select the Windows tab; Enter a profile name; Click Submit
4. Now, under Select Apps (on left menu), choose Multi-app Kiosk Mode
5. Click Create Profile on the upper right corner of the screen to finish
6. Click Apply to push the multi-app kiosk profile to device groups/user groups/individual devices
You can use Microsoft’s Assigned Access feature to run a single-app kiosk on a Windows 11 device. When you sign into the kiosk account, the app is launched automatically.
Kiosk software can help ensure that only authorized users can access certain applications or features on a Windows 11 device. This can prevent data breaches or other security issues caused by unauthorized access.
With Kiosk software, you can limit user access to only the necessary applications or features, preventing distractions and helping users focus on their work.
Kiosk software allows for easy configuration and management of multiple Windows 11 devices from a single location, reducing the time and effort required for IT teams to manage them individually.
Kiosk software enables businesses to create a customized user experience by restricting access to specific applications, websites, and features. This creates a consistent and controlled environment for employees or customers to interact with the device.
With Kiosk software, users can quickly and easily access the applications they need without being overwhelmed by unnecessary options or distractions. This improves overall satisfaction with the device and the workplace.
Kiosk software extends the lifespan of Windows 11 devices by preventing unauthorized access, minimizing the risk of accidental damage, and reducing the likelihood of security breaches. This saves money on repairs or replacements over time.
Overall, using kiosk software for Windows 11 can provide enhanced security, increased productivity, easier configuration and management, a customizable user experience, improved user satisfaction, and cost savings.
Though you can use assigned access to restrict users from using only one Windows app, it has certain drawbacks.
