How to Restrict Users to Access Only One Application in Windows 10

 


“Assigned access” is a feature in Windows 10 to create a lockdown so that users can only interact with one application when they sign-in to a certain account. With "Assigned access", users will not be able to get to the desktop, Start menu, or other applications, including the settings application.


Here's how to set up Assigned access on your computer:


1. Using the admin account, create a new Standard user account.


2. Use the windows key + I shortcut to open Settings.


3. Click “Accounts”, then click “Family & other people”.

7. Restart your computer and then sign-in with the account you created earlier.


After you finish using the account, you don't have access to the Start menu, therefore you have to use the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + Del to exit the account. Then restart your computer by clicking the Restart button from the Power menu on the Lock screen.
