I once experimented with changing a registry setting named Login Shell from EXPLORER.EXE to AFWWORKPLACEAPPLICATION.EXE. It had a dramatic downlocking effect but also side issues like logoff not automated.
If you search Internet you will find many different solutions to make a Windows box run one application only.
This has not been a most wanted feature among users of System 800xA; hence no standard documentation covering it.
I did write to some PM's in the 800xA 4.x days on how to set this up as it also solves many security issues. I do not really understand why this is not part of standard 800xA setup and documented accordingly. The previous article is not 100% correct and do not use the Shell changes discussed. Kiosk mode does not change the Shell of Windows (Windows uses Explorer.exe as the shell).
I did used to have write up of this but has not been updated in over 15 years.
