RightBooth events are designed to play in full screen mode and by using the RightBooth Security settings you can prevent users from being able to leave the event screen or gain access to other Windows applications.
This allows you to create a kiosk style interface, that locks the user into RightBooth and prevents them accessing other areas of the Windows operating system.
For example you can use the Security settings to hide the Windows Task bar and to stop various keystroke combinations from being entered using the keyboard, such as Alt-Tab to prevent switching to other apps.
Touchscreen Swipe Gestures
One of the more recent features in Windows is the ability to use swipe gestures on touchscreens in order to gain access to various parts of the Windows interface. For example, by using one finger to swipe in from the right hand edge of the screen you will gain access to the Windows 10 Action Centre.
If you are running your RightBooth event on a Windows 10 touchscreen enabled system, you probably want to prevent the use of touchscreen gestures. This is something that RightBooth cannot prevent internally, but it is certainly possible to prevent by using other methods.

The article describes two methods by which you can turn off swipe gestures and we have found Method 2 (which involves adding a new registry key) is the most reliable. Please note that if you use Method 2, swipe gestures will not be prevented until you restart your computer.
