Hello!

 

We have devices where we are using Edge with Kiosk mode.  We've discovered that the CTRL+N and CTRL+T shortcuts for new tab and new window work from within Kiosk mode.

 

We ideally only want to display a one window kiosk session for the browser and do not want to allow a full Edge browser access.  Is there some way we can disallow these shortcuts?  It also seems like a bug to me, as that seems to defeat the purpose of kiosk mode.

@Jeffrey_Fronius Hello!  Looks like this is on our roadmap for later this year! 

 

Please see our documentation for more information: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/microsoft-edge-configure-kiosk-mode#roadmap .  Thanks!
