    Hi All,

    I am bit new to Windows 8. I am working on a POS application (which again is new to me) and would like to use Windows 8 as the platform for the same (requirement). I am currently preparing the list of functionalities that are required and its possibility on Windows 8 for a POS app. Request you to help me with some pointers or inputs that I should consider and also its possibility on Windows 8

    - Disable desktop mode completely: Would like to use the metro mode with tiles for the required POS apps. Hence user should be disabled from entering into desktop mode

    - Disable users from unpinning and pinning the tiles in start screen

    - Creation of custom tiles
    -Disabling users from installing new apps from stores and uninstalling the exiting ones

    Above is the list I have to start with. Need your help in getting if anything is missing ( I know there will be a lot) and also how these can be achieved in Windows 8 and above. Any pointers is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you're in the wrong community for these kinds of development questions (most of the users here are consumers).

    you're better off asking on a dedicated development community where they can best advise you. Sounds like you'll also need to investigate Group Policy in more detail as well.
