View Kiosk Mode

Is there a way to open a window in kiosk mode in full screen with limited access to the OS?

You can trap window close events (edit this code to completely disallow closing) and open your layout full screen::
insert-event-func [e: :event either e/type = 'close[if request"Really Quit?"[e]][e]]
view layout/tight [at 0x0 box system/view/screen-face/size white]
You can access the Windows API to trap other system features as needed.

Carl wrote a nice little power-point-like program using the above concept. Nick put the program into one of his tutorials and I have a copy but can't remember the exact link to where I found it. The basic concept is to 1) inquire as to what size monitor you are using, and then 2) generate and show a layout of that size.
R E B O L []
page-size: system/view/screen-face/size
view layout/tight [
     size page-size
     banner "Whole screen layout"
     button "Quit" [quit]
