How to move or restore a Windows 11 VM in Hyper-V with TPM enabled (Shielded VMs)

In my previous blog I showed you step-by-step how to install Windows 11 as a VM in Hyper-V. The difference with Windows 10 is that Windows 11 requires a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip in order to boot. As you could read in my previous blog, this is no problem at all. However, I’m the kind of guy that regularly reinstalls my laptop/desktop and also uses multiple devices to run the same...

How to configure Windows 10 in Multi App Kiosk mode with Microsoft Intune

Last week I wrote a blog about Windows 10 Kiosk Single App mode. A good way if you have only one app that needs to run on the Windows 10 device. If you have multiple apps that you want to run in Kiosk mode you can configure Windows 10 in “Multi App Kiosk” mode.

How to configure Windows 10 in Kiosk Single App, full-screen mode with Microsoft Intune

Recently a few different customers told me they have plans to replace their expensive and hard to manage thin clients with cheaper Windows 10 fat-clients. And I think it’s a good move because you can easily configure Windows 10 in Kiosk mode via Microsoft Intune (by the time of writing this blog still in preview).

Automatic add existing Windows 10 devices to Windows AutoPilot

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about “How to setup Windows AutoPilot and add existing devices the quickest way”. At that time I meant with “existing devices”, devices that were not yet in use but were already delivered to the company without being added to AutoPilot.

So far this was only the Windows 10 Professional version but when Windows 10 was official released, I got my hands on the Windows 10 Enterprise edition.

How to create a Mandatory profile with Folder Redirections

Mandatory profiles are increasingly being used. This is partly due the rise of user virtualizations software like AppSense, RES Software and Microsoft UE/V, which use a mandatory profile as a basis.
