IMPORTANT: While KioWare can be used to open 3rd party applications it cannot guarantee any security of your kiosk while these applications are in use.

It is also possible to show a taskbar with all open apps via the User Interface section of the Configuration Tool. With KioWare running in shell mode, as is recommended, the start menu will still be disabled.


//This example can be run from a custom toolbar javascript button or CustomToolbarCode.js
