I am having issues with Edge in Kiosk Mode not wanting to refresh the page as we need it to.  I am trying to accomplish this with command line arguments, as follows:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe" --kiosk https://www.contoso.com --kiosk-idle-timeout-minutes=15

 This solution is not refreshing the session at all - is there a way to do what I'm trying? I know that there are Extensions that will auto-refresh pages, but they do not currently work in Kiosk mode.

@KrysKy Hello!  Based upon our documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/microsoft-edge-configure-kiosk-mode#additional-command-l...

The --kiosk-idle-timeout-minutes should reset the user session after the designated amount of time.  Is this what you are trying to do? 

 

You mentioned it is not working properly, is there any type of error?  Can you share what version of MS Edge and the OS version you are using?  Thanks!
