Azure Virtual Desktop: Manage User Environments and Apps

by Greg Shields

Grow your experience with the user side of virtual desktop administration in this course as you explore the user experience settings, user applications, and user profile solutions like FSLogix that facilitate their user's experience.

What you'll learn

You've spent so much time working with all the components that surround your virtual desktops, including their virtual machine objects themselves that you could easily forget that it's what's inside those VMs that's of most importance to the user. Dealing with the applications and user profile content inside each AVD session host is the topic for this course in the learning path.

In this fifth course out of six, Azure Virtual Desktop: Manage User Environments and Apps, you'll begin by exploring 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 new and quite clever solution with MSIX and MSIX App Attach. Finally, you'll take a quick introductory look at FSLogix, a teeing off, if you will, to the surprise seventh course in this learning path, which explores in comprehensive detail the entirety of FSLogix's implementation and use in non-persistent desktop environments.
