Hi Experts,
After taking delivery of a test device to use as a kiosk machine, I found out the kiosk mode is not available for Windows 8.1 Standard version (although its available for RT?)..
Anyway, is there a registry hack or a third-party that will allow this?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks Ozzeczek, interesting product but no support for Win 8.1 Standard - only for Pro or Ent out of the box. I'm looking for a cost effective solution something similar to SiteKiosk (www.sitekiosk.com)
Cheers.
