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.

This is real!
