I have two computers that employees are to use to access one website only and print things out from the website.  In the GPO I have told it not to allow saving but I'm having an issue.  One of the items they should be able to print out opens in a second tab with Adobe Reader.  Adobe pulls up the following menuadobe print screen.  The problem is if they click on Save it is defaulting to the desktop and for whatever reason as long as they don't actually click on anything to specify where to save it is allowing them to save the desktop.  If they actually try to choose a place to save it will deny them, even the desktop.

The other issue I'm having with Windows 10 is that even though I have the start menu locked down it is still showing plenty of items like Groove Music, Sticky Notes, XBox.  Is there a way for me to completely block viewing any installed programs?  Start Menu

Hi.

Starting with win8, there is this wonderful concept of "assigned access".
The assigned apps will be the only thing the user can use - he cannot interact with anything else by no means. Unfortunately, there are drawbacks:
-He cannot print at all
-Most apps that can be assigned are very limited. If you chose a kiosk browser like "Kiosk SP Browser" (find it in the microsoft store for free), it will be able to browse anything that you allow - great! But it will not even be able to display PDF files :-(

In other words: your solution is not waterproof. Mine is too much waterproof.
I am tempted to say that there should be a solution if only the developers were not so narrow minded.
I mean, a kiosk browser is a superior concept, but without printing? Without PDF display???
Maybe you'll be able to locate a solution for assigned access in the store that is unknown to me, try it.
