    PC in public area


    I will install a PC with Windows 8 and a tactile application in a store. Customers will acced to one application (and only one). I want to block them to do anything outside the application, unless they connect a mouse/keyboard (wich will be done for the staff).

    Actually I managed to maximize the window and kept it always on top (of others applications), users can't resize it or move it, and has the same size of the screen (it's even over the taskbar). But the problema comes with "slide from side" functions of Windows 8.

    You can access to configuration and control panel from there. and that's problematic.

    ¿How do I block this functionality on Windows 8 for a determined user?
    In case it's imposible to hide it, ¿How do I block this functionality on Windows 8 for a user of the category of standard user or kid (wich will be the role of the user logged in)?

    Thanks for your time and patience.

add public folder to This PC in 8.1
after it was removed from 8 I managed to get it back into the Library but seems impossible for This PC. It's a good, safe way to share files between multiple users on a PC .

RTM vs Public Release
Just a question. Is the RTM the same as the Public Release? Do they have the same build numbers, or are they different? Thanks.
