How do I Enable 'Library Mode' in EasyReader Windows

For computers in a public environment (e.g. a public library), Dolphin have introduced 'Library Mode' which removed the requirement of a Dolphin Account and added an automatic file clean feature after the system is idle for a period of time.

Note: Feature only available in EasyReader Windows 10.05 later and requires an active subscription on EasyReader Premium Education.
