Kiosk mode configuration (Windows policy)

With the Kiosk mode configuration you set up a Windows computer to run in kiosk mode.

In kiosk mode, only a single app (the kiosk app) can run. Kiosk mode is turned on when the user associated with the kiosk mode (the kiosk user) logs in.

Note By default, the computer remains in kiosk mode after a restart. To change this behavior, log into the computer with the kiosk user account, go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and turn off Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart.



User account

The user associated with the kiosk mode (the kiosk user).


<computer name>\<user name> (local account)

<domain>\<user name> (domain account)

You can omit the <domain> part if the user name is unique across all domains.


The Application User Model ID (AUMID) of the app that is launched when the kiosk mode is turned on (the kiosk app).

For information on how to obtain the AUMID value, see the Microsoft document Find the Application User Model ID of an installed app.
