The Windows operating system provides various settings and configuration options in order to lock-down and protect a public facing kiosk PC or to make a PC ready for unattended, continuous 24/7 use like for digital signage applications. Unfortunately, these settings are hidden all over the operating system which makes it difficult to manage them from a single point of configuration. Special tools for this purpose like the Windows SteadyState tool from Microsoft have been discontinued or do not work with current Windows versions any more.
In order to fill this gap, we have released the FrontFace Lockdown Tool
for Windows: Simply protect a Windows PC with a single click and/or make it ready for an unattended, continuous 24/7 use. The FrontFace Lockdown Tool
e.g. allows you to disable certain keyboard keys such as the Windows key or typical shortcuts like CTRL+ALT+DEL, it also helps you to configure a restricted user account that automatically logs on at boot time without entering a password or controls the automatic start of a predefined application. It is also possible to configure typical settings such as standby, screensaver or power saving options with ease. The FrontFace Lockdown Tool
is available for Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10!Documentation / Demo
