Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Glenn Weadock, and welcome to my course, Configuring Windows 10 Devices: Plan Desktop and Device Deployment. I'm a consultant and seminar leader at Independent Software Inc in Colorado, and an author of over a dozen books on Windows, networking, and certification. This course begins by setting forth the primary new features of Windows 10, and what's changed since Windows 7 and 8. Then we explore building images for deployment within the enterprise using the free Windows ADK and MDT utilities, as well as deploying Windows on virtual machines and flash drives. Some of the major topics that we will cover include Windows 10 editions and their differences, how to build boot images and install images, setting up the Microsoft deployment toolkit, configuring client Hyper-V, and deploying BitLocker. Now by the end of this course you'll know how to choose between Internet Explorer and Edge, how to build provisioning packages with the Windows configuration designer, the steps to create a deployment share containing operating systems, drivers, and applications using scan state to customize the migration of user profile data, deploying a standardized start screen layout with PowerShell, and distributing Windows 10 on a bootable flash drive using Windows to Go. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with Windows fundamentals, but no advanced knowledge is required. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to deploy Windows 10 in your enterprise with the Plan Desktop and Device Deployment course at Pluralsight.
