Block user's desktop on Windows in Qt



  • hello everyone. I would create a Qt application that starts in first place right after the opening session of the user and that blocks access to all other office software, ie the application will work as a session handler (as Cyber ​​Cafe). application will provide access to the office or not to any user.
    How can I do that? which classes to use? Can someone give me a guideline or a code that will allow me to do this?
    Thanks in advance.



  • For my work I did something like a kiosk but only for web acess. We only wanted to give acess to 3 or 4 websites, so I did a fullscreen widget with a webview. To choose between the websites I put some buttons in the widget. I used linux with windowmaker, in windowmaker alt+tab and alt+f4 doenst seem to work so the user can't change or terminate the current app, also the kiosk keyboard doesnt have all the keys so it's a extra security measure.



  • Ok,fine but me ,I work on windows

  • In windows to restrain the user to use only one application, you have to use a combination of admin policies and regedit options.
