If you want to restrict a user account to just 1 app and nothing else, perhaps following steps can do the trick:

this is for Win 10 only

Win10 has something called kiosk mode. Read up on it here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...

This will make APLICATION.EXE run at startup and shut the pc down when you close it, windows only.

Replace USERNAME with your USERNAME
Replace firefox.exe, with APLICATIONNAME.EXE
Replace start firefox.exe with start "COMPLETE\PATH\TO\FILE\FILENAME.EXE"

Place startup.bat in your startup folder, located in:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

------------startup.bat--------------
@echo off&mode 25,2
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
start firefox.exe
:loop
set test=nothing
timeout 5 >nul
for /f "tokens=1 skip=3" %%a in ('tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq firefox.exe"') do set "test=%%a"
if "!test!"=="firefox.exe" (goto loop) else (shutdown /s /t 0)
exit /b
-----------------end-------------------

The problem with #3 is that there's nothing preventing the user from closing the console window and killing the batch.

Re #6 Well you could run it with wscript.exe using a .vbs, making it invisible.

Look, I don't particularity want to break it down point by point, but leaving it all to a script is not a great idea. A script is just not well equipped to deal with even a casually malicious user. Fortunately, there's no real need to do so, since Windows itself is willing to take on the responsibility.
