Azure Virtual Desktop: Plan and Implement User Environments and Apps

by Ned Bellavance

Grow your experience with the user side of virtual desktop administration. This course will teach you how to manage user experience settings, user profile solutions, and deploy applications.

What you'll learn

You've spent so much time working with all of the components that surround your virtual desktops, including the virtual machine objects themselves that you could easily forget what's inside those VMs, and what's most important to the user. In this course, Azure Virtual Desktop: Plan and Implement User Environments and Apps, you'll delve into the applications and user profile content inside each AVD session host. First, you'll explore the variety of user settings that control how users interact with their virtual desktop environments, including the types of devices that are redirected into their user sessions. Next, you'll dig into applications and the means and mechanisms for automating the delivery of applications onto session hosts, including Microsoft's MSIX App Attach solution and application masking. Finally, you'll expand your FSLogix knowledge from previous courses in this learning path by exploring office containers and Cloud Cache. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to appropriately deliver applications and manage user environments in an AVD deployment.
