Run only one app upon log-in Called Assigned Access or Kiosk Mode, you can set Windows Blue to automatically run a Windows 8 app after your device starts up and a particular user account has been logged in. This essentially turns your computer or tablet into a single-use device. Why would you want this? For example, you could start a new user account meant solely for customers or other guests you want to have access to your Windows 8.1 device -- but be limited to doing only one thing on it through an app. So you could choose this app listed in Assigned Access (under PC Settings, Users) to run when you log into this account.
