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
var pid
var wnd = null

if(!pid) pid = KioUtils.Execute('notepad.exe')
var wnd = null
while (!wnd) {
    wnd = KioUtils.GetProcMainWnd(pid)
    if(wnd) setTimeout(() => { KioUtils.BringWndToFront(wnd) }, 3000);
    setInterval(checkVisibility, 6000)

function checkVisibility(){
    //Send the window to the background and verify that is still running.
    if(KioUtils.IsWndVisible(wnd)) KioUtils.HideWnd(wnd)
