Getting your website on a self-service kiosk is a simple process with the use of kiosk lockdown software like KioskSimple. In this article (and accompanying video) I’ll show you just how easy it is to convert your existing website into a self-service kiosk in just a few simple steps. Don’t worry, no nerd degree is required.
Step 1: Download and install KioskSimple on your kiosk.
Step 2: Launch the easy to use KioskSimple Configuration Tool from the Windows desktop.
Step 3: The Quick Start Wizard will prompt you for a few basic pieces of information. Simply enter your website into the “Start-up web page” field and create a new password (the default password is “kiosksimple”).
Step 4: Save your changes and close the KioskSimple Configuration Tool. That’s it for the configuration. Time to test how your website looks on a kiosk!
Step 5: Launch KioskSimple and if the product is unregistered click “Try the Demo”.
And then click “Test Configuration” to see how your website looks on a kiosk.
Step 6: Gaze at your website in all it’s glory on a kiosk. When you’re done, press ESC and enter your password to close KioskSimple. Note: if you don’t have a physical keyboard installed, browse to a textbox and the touchscreen keyboard will appear.
