There is a feature in Windows for a long time that allows system administrators to lock down the device and allow the user to access only a single application. This feature makes Windows a perfect choice for kiosk terminals.

This is how this feature looked in the leaked builds before the preview:


Don’t look for this feature in the official preview, it will be available only in the final product.
