If a user’s job is to focus on monitoring live video, you can force Security Desk to run in full screen mode to prevent the user from switching to Windows mode.

What you should know

You can also set Security Desk to start in full screen operation mode on a specific workstation.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the User management task.
  2. Select a user, and click the Privileges tab.
  3. Expand the Application privileges, and the Security Desk privileges.
  4. Deny the privilege Change client views to that user.
  5. Click Apply.


Security Desk now always runs in full screen mode for that user. The Restore Down command and the F11 key (switch between full screen and windowed mode) are disabled.
