Question: When running an Intranet site via internet explorer in kiosk mode,how do you open documents via links throughout the intranet site in a normal window so they can be closed in order to return to the Intranet site?
Answer: In kiosk mode the screen and the browser window are equivalent. Trying to open another browser window to display something would be the equivalent of trying to run a browser in a web page rather than the other way around. You can't open anything outside of the current browser window in kiosk mode.
