Hello,

Thank you for submitting your inquiry. You have the choice of IE or Chrome Browser engines with using SiteKiosk. With the Chrome browser, any direct link to the PDF will always just open in the browser via the built in PDF plugin. For security reasons we do not recommend that you use the external browsers. However for purposes of web development, you can use the links below to test your pages simulating the SiteKiosk environment.

Microsoft WebBrowser Control -requires Registry Edit - Use hex value 0x2AF8 for IE11.

Current Chrome engine used in SiteKiosk 9.7 5026

How do i change between the IE browser and Chrome browser?
Re: Browser 10/9/2019 4:49 PM
Hello,

In the SiteKiosk configuration, you will click Start Page and Browser. In the same line as Primary Monitor and Secondary Monitor, you will see the word Browser-Engine:. There, you can click on either IE or Chrome Browser.

Best regards.
