Google Chrome Kiosk Mode

Google Chrome Kiosk Mode

If you have a PC or kiosk set up to exclusively use Keyzapp, we recommend using Kiosk Mode.

Kiosk mode is a special full-screen mode for the Google Chrome browser, which prevents it from opening multiple tabs and prevents users from going to web sites using the URL navigation bar.

To create a shortcut for Google Chrome Kiosk Mode, do the following:

1. Create a new shortcut  to Google Chrome on the desktop
2. Right-click this shortcut and select "Properties"
3. Select the "Shortcut" tab and add the --kiosk command at the end of the Target field
4. After the –kiosk command, add a space the particular URL to be launched in Kiosk Mode (ie. https://app.keyzapp.com/ in the UK, or https://na.keyzapp.com/ in North America)

Please also ensure that Google Chrome is your default browser.

Exiting from Chrome kiosk mode is intentionally difficult - either swipe the screen from the top left hand corner and then click the desktop, or use the key combination Alt-F4.
