The Microsoft Internet Explorer Web browser includes two types of "Kiosk Mode" feature designed to enable full-screen mode without toolbars, menus and address bars. The "Kiosk Mode" is typically used to secure a computer that provides public access to a single web page, but the feature is also useful when you wish to maximise the amount of Web page space available while browsing. Access the address bar while using the Internet Explorer "Kiosk Mode" when you wish to connect to sites other than the Internet Explorer home page.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Internet Explorer and press the "F11" key to change the Internet Explorer display to "Kiosk Mode." Move the mouse cursor to the top of the Internet Explorer screen and the address bar will appear.

  2. 2

    Click the "Start" button and then click the "Search" box in the menu that appears. Type "iexplore --k" without quotes and tap the "Enter" key to start Internet Explorer in "Kiosk Mode."

  3. 3

    Press the "Ctrl" and "L" keys or the "Ctrl" and "O" keys on the keyboard at the same time. The "Open" dialogue box that serves as the "Kiosk Mode" address bar will appear. Type the URL of a website into the "Open" field and click the "OK" button to connect to a different website.
