    Issue

    When a link distributed by Ivanti EPM Software Distribution is opened, Internet Explorer will display the web page in full screen. F11 key is unable to turn it off.

     

    Cause

    The link shortcut is configured to activate Kiosk mode in IE to open the page.

     

    To start Internet Explorer in Kiosk mode, click Start, click Run, type the following command in the Open box, and then click OK.

     

    iexplore -k page

    where the page is the Web page address for the Web page that you want to appear when Internet Explorer starts.
