Setup a Desktop Shortcut and Kiosk Printing

1. Download & install Google Chrome here: https://www.google.com/chrome

2. Check that your receipt printer is set as your default printer.

3. Launch Chrome and check that the Chrome Version is at the latest version.

4. On your computer find your Chrome program. Right-Click on it, in the drop down choose Send To > Desktop (Create Shortcut)

5. Right-Click on that new shortcut and then choose Printer Properties.

6. A window opens up and appears on the Shortcut tab. You will see a Target field containing information. At the end of the field add in [space]--kiosk[space]--kiosk-printing https://pos.vin65.com/#/login 

7. Below is how it looks on PC.

8. Kiosk mode will force chrome into a forced fullscreen mode and allow slient print where the print dialogue popup will not appear again. It would be a good idea to rename the chrome shortcut to Vin65 POS or something similar. When done press Apply.

Now your Desktop Version of Vin65 POS will operate the smoothest. Just open up that Shortcut each time.

  • If you need to exit kiosk mode, press the Windows key on your keyboard, and close the kiosk window from the task bar.

  • If you need to use chrome in non-kiosk mode, you will want to create another shortcut on the desktop without the Kiosk mode tags.
