[Solved] ReBoot option next to ShutDown option would be good

Post#1 by tacovdveen » 23 Apr 2014, 10:49

I start using KIOSK more and more. Especially for SAFE banking/mailing and CLEAN surfing.
Since I have this habbit my spam went down from 30 to 1 or 2 a day. And this is when
working in XP without firewall or anti-virus/spam. So it really works fantastic to keep PC
CLEAN. And because KIOSK boots in seconds I don't mind rebooting now and then.

Most of the time I start with KIOSK and like to ReBoot into my XP or PorteusMATE.
It would be good to have a ReBoot option next to the ShutDown option. Not that I am too
lazy to press the hardware ON/OFF-button, but those buttons easily get worn down.

Regards Taco

good idea :)
will see if i can implement this.

next version of kiosk will have all options like in full blown desktops :)

and i have re-enabled Alt-Tab shortcut which may be useful in rare - but still -cases (brokenman produced that nice logo):
