Misc: Unable to add sites/shortcuts to when using Chrome

Description

Team,
I am having an issue with my internal website no allowing to print from it. We ran a couple of tests and it works fine with Google Chrome, I want to change my browser to chrome but I can't find a way to add shortcuts to my other services.

Please help.

Hello,

Please note that SiteKiosk 9.1 is out of support and starting external Browser applications like Chrome Browser is not supported.
But when using the Chrome Browser Skin of SiteKiosk the SiteKiosk Browser uses a Chromium CEF browser engine installed with SiteKiosk.

You can e.g. configure the Start Screen to place web links on the start page.

For printing with Chrome Browser Skin you can enable the print button at “-->Start Page & Browser-->Customize-->Browser Toolbar”.
Also check that “Allow printing” at ““-->Start Page & Browser-->Customize-->Settings” is enabled (enabled by Default).

Michael Olbrich

I am sorry maybe I did not explain myself correctly.

What I am trying to do is to add different sites in the start screen using the Chrome Browser that is included with Sitekiosk.

A good solution would be to have the links in a separate Start-like menu, I saw that in one of the examples in the "Start Page& Browser"

Hello,

From the start menu you can start applications that are added to the SiteKiosk configuration.
Web links must be added to the start screen (or you create your own custom html page).

For using Start Screen with Chrome BRowser Skin you must update SiteKiosk:

Even advisable as SiteKiosk 9.1 is out of support.

Note: You may have to purchase a SiteKiosk license update for using SiteKiosk 9.5 permanently as you can update for free within 12 months after buying your license but after that time period you need to buy an update to use a newer version.
But you can test it before purchasing any license.
