    Force to open browser form in kiosk mode


    I am looking for a way to create a link to the form that will get emailed out using SharePoint Designer workflow and when the recipient clicks on the link it will open the browser in Kiosk mode. Currently we make sure our users default browser is set to Internet Explorer so I am not certain if there is a way to modify my current link to the form which looks like this: <a href="[%Workflow Context: Current Site URL%]/_layouts/FormServer.aspx?xmllocation=[%Workflow Context:Current Item URL%]&Source=[%Workflow Context:Current Site URL%]&DefaultItemOpen=1>Form Link</a>

    Or if I should be adding some sort of form load event on the InfoPath form itself?

    Or if this is even possible at all?  

    The reason for all this tomfoolery is because this form is set to check it self out when it is opened to the current user and then when a "save/close" button is clicked, it will check itself back in allowing for others to edit this form. However we can NOT seem to get our users to stop closing the browser which keeps the form checked out to them. So as a work around I was hoping that launching this browser form in kiosk mode would prevent them from doing this. Yes I know they can go to their taskbar and close the browser but I'm grasping at straw here. If there are better ideas, then I am all ears.

    - currently using SharePoint 2010, InfoPath 2010, SP Designer 2010

    Thanks in advance for any help
