I would like to configure IE 7 in such a way that it only opens 1 url, everything else is blocked. We have a kiosk machine and we want only one page displayed and dont want people to surf internet or use the browser for anything else.

thanks in advance.

Create a shortcut to IE on the desktop

Right-click and select properties

In the target field, add the following to the end of the line (make sure there is a space before this:

-k www.yourwebpage.com

This will start IE in Kiiosk mode
