windows 8.1 in Kiosk Mode

hello all-

I have been battling with Win 8.1 to setup assigned access using IE. That part is easy enough. But assigned access would only launch IE in normal more (with the address bar showing). What I want to do is launch IE in Kiosk more (using the --kiosk parameter/switch which is normally accomplished via the command prompt or using a shortcut) but there simply is not way to pass the assigned access feature the parameters needed to put IE in kiosk more. I've tried many many thing not having any luck
Can anyone please let me know how can i use IE as the assigned access app with the right more (kiosk).  any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Create an account (ie: KioskUser)
Charms (Win-C), Settings, Change PC Settings, Accounts, other accounts
choose “Sign in without a Microsoft account”
also choose a blank password so it is easy in case the system has to reboot
don't, of course, make it an administrator account
 
Log out and Log into the KioskUser account
to create a profile.  You'll see a message that the account has no apps -- this is ok!
 
Log out and Log into as Admin
install apps for Kiosk and assign to KioskUser
Charms, Settings, Change PC Settings, Accounts, Set up account for assigned access
select KioskUser and the app(s)
 
to make Windows automatically use this account when signing on:
press Win-R to run an application and type -->   netplwiz   and press ENTER
(Win is the Windows key on your keyboard)
select the account and enter the password (if you did not choose a blank one)
click OK
 
restart PC
 
you should be using the KioskUser account :)

Do you have an Enterprise version of Windows? You will need that since the Home edition does not let you set  Group Policy.

This link shows step-by-step pictures of what you need to set:

summarizing: Once group policy is set, to start Internet Explorer in Kiosk mode, click Start, click Run (or you can press Windows key-R), type the following command in the Open box, and then click OK
