On my wife's Acer Aspire 5517 she has to hold down the shift key to be able to login to her account otherwise the Kiosk user comes up.  It is a windows 7 OS. 

 

How do I get this Kiosk option deleted or turned off?

 

I have tried going into the accounts to do this but Kiosk is not an option to delete.   I have also done many google searches which have been no help.  They seem to be more involved with getting the kiosk option added or deleted specifially in IE or Firefox.  I also did a search on the microsoft website but that was no help either.

 

 

Thanks

Try this...

 

Click on the Start orb> All Programs> Accessories> right click on Command Prompt> click on Run as administrator.  The page which opens should look similar to the one below.  Type in control userpasswords2 and press Enter.

 


Under the Users tab, put a check mark on Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.


If you see the account name "kiosk" listed in there, select the user name and click on remove.

 
Click on Ok

If you are simply trying to exit full screen, press F11.
