Win 8.1 Assigned Access (Kiosk) mode - app Settings

    Question

  • In Windows 8.1 Assigned Access (Kiosk) mode, there's no access for the user to the charm.

    What is the recommended way for displaying app settings in this case?

    Kiosk mode is not covered in the guidelines for app settings http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh770544.aspx :

    • " Use the Settings charm as the primary entry point to all of your app's settings, and put all of your settings in the Settings pane. "


    I see no way but to have a button which shows a Settings flyout programmatically.

  • Kiosk apps are generally locked down so users wouldn't fiddle with settings, but if it makes sense for your application then you can bypass the settings charms and add your own entry point to bring up a flyout.
