Manual

Address-Bar:

Leave the Address-Bar empty and hit Enter to go to your search engine's start page.

The Address-Bar expands the following shortcuts:

. www.
* Computer no Chromium
*doc Documents Folder
*url Favorites Folder
*down Downloads Folder
*pro My Profile Directory
*net Network no Chromium
*control ControlPanel no Chromium
*apps Apps Folder no Chromium

Open My Documents with Chromium:

*doc

Append a backslash to open it with the Windows® shell:

*doc\

This opens drive C:\ with Chromium:

C:
Command Line:

LobbyBrowser starts from the command line:

%LB%

You could append everything you would enter into the Address-Bar:

%LB% .reuschtools.com

or

%LB% who has stolen my notebook

Please be aware that the Internet does not know everything.

LobbyBrowser handles URL files:

%LB% *url\General-Anzeiger.url

LobbyBrowser knows some command line switches:

-i shell icons
-l shell list
-d shell details
-oX registry slot
-p [history file] public

Open drive C:\ with the Windows® shell and show a detailed listing:

%LB% -d C:\

Start LobbyBrowser, but save all settings in registry slot 2:

%LB% -o2

Start LobbyBrowser in Public Mode with empty History:

%LB% -p 

Public Mode with predefined History.

%LB% -p *doc\MyHistory.txt

LobbyScreenSaver

You are a hotel manager and have one or more PCs standing in your lobby:

Signalise to the guests passing by that your PCs are running. At the same time show them important information, which is always up to date.

Just browse to your favorite Internet pages within LobbyBrowser i.g.:

  • Latest weather forecast
  • Spa opening hours
  • Today's restaurant menu
  • Local tourist information

Now select Lobby->LobbyScreenSaver from the LobbyBrowser menu.

Like a common screen saver, the LobbyScreenSaver will start if a PC is idle. If the user moves the mouse, it will stop and the PC will either show the Desktop or the Lock-Screen, depending on your settings.

LobbyScreenBrowser

Same as LobbyScreenSaver. But if the user moves the mouse, the LobbyScreenSaver will
switch to Public Mode.

The user can click on a link to get detailed information on the restaurant menu i.g.

The Windows® shell will not be accessible.
History and settings will not be stored.

After a certain time of idle the PC goes back to the LobbyScreenSaver. If the user exits the LobbyBrowser, the Desktop or the Lock-Screen will show up.

WebView2 Cromium Fixed Version

If you do not want your Chromium core to be updated automatically, you could use a fixed version of WebView2.

  • Download the fixed version .cab file and extract it to a temporary directory i.g.:
md WV_tmp
expand -F:* Microsoft.WebView2...cab WV_tmp
  • Copy the content of the Microsoft.WebView2.Fixed... folder into a program folder and create an environment variable:
setx WEBVIEW "C:\Program Files\MyWebView2"

LobbyBrowser should detect the core and show it up in the core menu.
