- Windows 10 has a new feature called assigned access that allows us to limit a user to one, and only one application. It's not real commonly used but it is plausible we might want to limit users to only using one application. The example Microsoft often uses is if you are setting up a kiosk to be set up in a public place. Obviously you wouldn't want the general public to have free reign of your PC, it'd be much better to limit them and possibly limit them to only one application.
Off the start menu, I'll go to settings, accounts, and on the left hand side I'll click on other users, at the very bottom the last line has an option to set up assigned access. I'll click on that and then it's very straight forward, I need to choose which user, and which application. So, I'll click on the user option and select my user and then I'll click on the application option and choose one of the applications.
And now, when this particular user logs in they will only have access to the listed application. Typically you'll need to restart your PC in order for this setting to take effect.
Martin first reviews the various editions of both the desktop and mobile versions of Windows 10. This section covers the special features included with the Enterprise edition, and the hardware requirements for some of the new Windows 10 features. Martin also explains installing and updating drivers and configuring and optimizing the OS, including system properties and power options. Then it's a deep dive into Group Policy, including working with local groups, configuring preferences, and troubleshooting Group Policy. Martin also looks at Windows security—authentication and encryption—as well as the boot process, and concludes the course with a brief look at virtualization, networking, and backup and recovery.
