    Hi Dirtyvu,

    thank you VERY much. Your tip did it!!!

    It seems the button on the screen and on the keyboard are somehow amalgamated! If you deactivate the windows button on the keyboard the other one on the screena also automatically deactivates.

    Best regards and thank you ALL very much for helping me out with my problems!

    Roger

    windows 8.1 will have a kiosk mode. that should solve the problem.

    Windows 8.1 'Kiosk Mode' discovered in newly leaked build | The Verge

    Available in the PC settings menu, Kiosk Mode appears to be a way to lock down a device to a single Windows 8-style application. Apps can be selected to launch at login, with the app lockdown in place for user accounts.

    It's a feature that's likely designed for business users, or an embedded-like terminal that simply runs one application. Use cases could involve retail units that customers can use apps on, or business devices that allow employees to run a line-of-business application.

    FYI, if they swipe from the left they will get the last open app.

    If that's the case in the beta, then that's probably a bug that will be fixed before release.
