Description

The Set-AssignedAccess cmdlet configures the specified user account so that it can use only one Windows Store app. The user cannot exit the app, sign out, or access any system settings.

If a user is signed-in or the computer has a PS/2 keyboard, you must restart the computer to apply the changes.

To sign out of assigned access, quickly press the left Windows logo key five times.
