In some situations, Repeat Signage run from a computer with dual monitors that is not dedicated for display digital signage.  For example, a computer in a reception area where one screen is used for the work of the receptionist and the other is displaying a Repeat Signage presentation file to customers/visitors.  Most of the options below are more advisable for dedicated digital signage computers.


Keep player on top of other applications - This makes sure that if another application pops-up, that Repeat Signage keeps making itself the top program.

Disable task switching, e.g. Alt+Tab and the Windows start/flag key - This stops the use of the Alt+Tab and the Windows flag key so that you cannot accidently move Repeat Signage off the screen. 

Disable task manager when Ctrl+Alt+Delete is pressed - Removes the Task Manager option that can be used to launch other applications from the screen that appears when you use the Ctrl+Alt+Delete keyboard key sequence.   However, don't use this option unless you need to.

Remove Windows start bar when running -  Repeat Signage will automatically cover the entire screen.  In some instances, the Windows Task Bar will appear on top of the running player.  You can use this option to hide the Windows Start Bar.  However, don't use this option unless you need to.
