Description

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.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you found the fifth course in my learning path of the Windows Virtual Desktop topics and technologies that comprise the AZ‑140 exam. I am Author Evangelist and a full‑time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been working with virtual desktop technologies since the earliest introduction of virtual desktops. We've spent so much time working with all the components that surround our virtual machines, including their virtual machine objects themselves, that you could easily forget it's what's inside those VMs that's most important to the user. Dealing with the applications and user profile content inside each WVD session host is the topic for this course in the learning path. In this fifth course out of six, we'll begin by exploring the variety of user settings, their control, how users interact with their virtual desktop environments, including the types of devices that are redirected into their user sessions. Next, we 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, we'll take a quick introductory look at FSLogix, a teeing off, if you will, to our surprise seventh course in this learning path, which explorers in comprehensive detail the entirety of FSLogix's implementation and use in non‑persistent desktop environments. If you've just been tasked with designing and/or managing a Windows Virtual Desktop environment in Microsoft Azure, this course is your next stop brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we monitor and maintain a WVD infrastructure. Let's get started.
