Join Martin Guidry for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the mobile versions of Windows 10, part of Windows 10: Administration.
- Now let's talk about the mobile editions of Windows 10. Windows 10 is available in two mobile editions. One is just called Mobile, the other is called Mobile Enterprise. Currently there's not too great of a difference between Mobile and Mobile Enterprise. On both of them, applications will update automatically. But as far as updating the operating system, it is a manual process in Windows Mobile, and it is an automatic process in Windows Mobile Enterprise.
Microsoft has promised that security updates will be available quicker for Mobile Enterprise. And again, those security updates would be automatically installed. The Microsoft documentation also mentions a different mindset between the two versions. For the most part, Mobile is meant to run phones. If you've bought a phone recently that contains Windows 10, it most likely is the Mobile version. Mobile Enterprise is designed to do something a little different than just phones.
Some examples Microsoft has given, they are hoping Mobile Enterprise does well as the operating system for retail point of sale, handheld terminals, and industrial robotics. Obviously we've seen the iPhone and iPad do well as point-of-sale devices or handheld terminals. And Microsoft is hoping that their new Windows 10 can take over some of that market share.
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.
