ColumbiaNet Kiosk Software

The ColumbiaNet Stations are running a heavily locked down version of Microsoft Windows 7.  The stations have USB drive support, allowing users to view, create, edit, print and save files to and from USB drives.  Documents and sensitive data should not be saved locally on these machines, as these machines are publicaly accessible and the data will be purged.

ColumbiaNets can be easily customized for specific locations, e.g, your department would like to use a different homepage or button. Email for more information.

  • Acrobat Reader: View and print PDF files
  • Firefox: Web browser
  • Microsoft Office: Create, view, edit and print documents, spreadsheets and presentations
  • Plugins: Flash, QuickTime, Windows Media Player, Real Player, Zotero
