Always allow Administrator to acceess Windows key and functi

Post by hstraf »

When an Administrator "logs into" the Kiosk software (after click Administrator link in timer window and then enter password), we should be able to always click the Windows Key, and show the desktop, taskbar, clock, change log-on as different Windows user, etc...

This way, we can make any needed changes to the computer very easily and quickly. Otherwise, we must modify the Kiosk software configuration settings to enable these functions, then do our work on the computer (install updates, etc.) and then go back to Kiosk software and re-setup the configuration settings.

There is a big risk we might forget something when re-enabling the settings and configuration, especially if we have more then one kiosk and are busy trying to update things as quickly as possible.

It would be nice to be able to click the "administrator" option, enter password, and then have ability to see all the windows functions, desktop, switch to Administrator Windows User, etc... then when we are finished, we can close the timer (reset) and everything is back to normal for next customer.

When an Administrator "logs into" the Kiosk software and enable desktop, taskbar without click save button, the setting would not change, and it will be the same as before.
I think the only thing need is taskbar and Start for Windows' own administration.
I am afraid to make more confusion enable these function when administrator logs in.
We may add a new toggle button just for these purpose in the future version.
