Microsoft 365 Business Part 3 – Windows AutoPilot

Following on from the last post on Azure Active Directory inclusions in Microsoft 365 Business, let’s take a look at the Windows AutoPilot pieces. For full details on Windows AutoPilot take a look at the official documentation.   To start adding enrolling devices into Windows AutoPilot, sign in to the Microsoft Store for Business as an admin and clicking Manage. Click on Windows AutoPilot Deployment Program.   I already have one device enrolled, but I need to add another device.

Microsoft 365 Business Part 1 – Windows 10 Business

As I’m currently preparing some session content for Ignite 2017, I thought I would share some of the pieces I’ll be going through, starting with Windows 10 Business. This raises the question – what is Windows 10 Business, is it another Windows SKU? Rather than think of it as another SKU, the best way to think about it is that it’s Windows 10 Pro when it’s being managed by Microsoft 365 Business. If that’s not clear, think of it as

Changes to Access Work Or School in Windows 10 Insider Preview

One of the things that Windows 10 Azure Active Directory join with Intune auto enrolment is that it has protected me from some of the changes that were taking place in the Windows Settings UI for Access Work Or School. With the Anniversary Update there were some changes that made it harder to figure out what was happening, especially around clarity in joining Azure AD versus just performing a device enrolment. With the current Insider preview builds, steps have been

Windows 10 Enterprise 1607 now available on TechNet Evaluation Center

I think it might be accurate to say that Windows 10 Enterprise has received more attention in the last month than it has received over the entire lifecycle so far for Windows 10, first of all with the E3 and E5 subscription options (which don’t replace the VL editions, just in case anyone is still confused), and with the removal of some group policy options from the Windows 10 Pro SKUs. If you don’t have an MSDN subscription to download

Windows 10 Anniversary Update Resources

As we are now on the final days before the Anniversary Update rolls out to non-Windows Insiders, it’s worth visiting, or even revisiting, some of the resources that cover what’s new and what’s changed. I’m going to start with one of the topics that has received a bit of attention, which are the changes to Group Policy and MDM settings for Pro versus Enterprise/Education, which started appearing with 1511, but are continuing to change.
