MS Edge Kiosk Mode, Multi Tab Syntax for Command Line

With a domain connected computer, I am looking for a way to make sure Edge is locked down and Kiosk Mode with a whole bunch of GPOs seems to be the way I need to go. Unfortunately, the built-in Kiosk setup requires it to run on just a local account which prevents a lot of my GPOs from being enforced, but following the instructions on the link below, I know that it can pull up the pages I want and display how I want:

The question is: how do I achieve the same result with three tabs using the syntax

msedge.exe --kiosk www.contoso.com --edge-kiosk-type=public-browsing --kiosk-idle-timeout-minutes=1

Hi @OBXBoost

Do you want to open Edge in kiosk mode with three tabs using the command line? If so you can try the following command:

 msedge.exe --kiosk www.google.com www.msn.com www.microsoft.com --edge-kiosk-type=public-browsing --kiosk-idle-timeout-minutes=1

I test in Edge Version 89.0.774.50 (Official build) (64-bit) and it works.

I was really trying to make a desktop shortcut that I could then deploy with Group Policy....

@OBXBoost Do you mean you want to use the command in desktop shortcut? If so, you can just add the command after Properties-> Target. Then you can just double click the desktop shortcut to run Edge with the command. The value in Target is like below (you can change the path of Edge browser to your owns):

 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe" --kiosk www.google.com www.msn.com www.microsoft.com --edge-kiosk-type=public-browsing --kiosk-idle-timeout-minutes=1

That's the info I needed. But in Edge, is there any way to make it get rid of the address bar, navigation buttons and settings accessibility?

These are public accessible kiosks and I only want them to have access to just the tabs, no ability to do anything else.
