Description

These days, it's common to have many Windows 10 computer systems, and keeping on top of managing updates is never easy. In this course, Windows 10 Configuring and Managing Applications, you will discover just how to make your system as stable as possible with managing Windows store applications. First, you will learn about Client Hyper-V and user state virtualization. Next, you will discover how to manage App-V Application deployments. Finally, you will touch on the User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) and deploying apps using Microsoft Intune. By the end of this course, you will understand all of these Windows 10 tools in detail.

Course Overview
Hello there and thanks for taking the time to take a look at this Windows 10 Configuring and Managing Applications course. This I course is going to give you the details on how to support applications that are installed on Windows 10, but have issues. So whether you want to learn about client Hyper-V, User State Virtualization, UEV App-V deployments, Microsoft Intune, or the Application Compatibility Toolkit, these are all tools that are part of the Windows 10 Cannon that we cover in pretty good detail in this course. I hope this is what you're looking for, and if so, dive in and I'll see you in the first module.

Application Co-existence Using Client Hyper-V
Well hello there. Mark Wilkins checking in. How are you today? I'll bet you you're here because you've got problems with your Windows 10 applications. They just don't want to run on Windows 10. Well if so, you're in the right place. We're going to look at configuring and managing applications and we're going to focus on the co-existence with a software tool called Client Hyper-V. So let's see what we're going to cover. Topics in this module, application compatibility using virtualization. Then we'll take a look at enabling Client Hyper-V. That's right, we don't have to install it, we just have to turn it on. Then we'll take a look at some of the features of Client Hyper-V, something called offline hard drive access. Then we'll take a look at compatibility for the legacy applications we're trying to run. Then we'll look at some of the management functionality, managing virtual machines, what can we do with the virtual machines once we've created them. And then we'll do a bit of a wrap up.

Managing App-V Application Deployments
In this module, we're going to take a look at application virtualization. Microsoft calls it App-V. And this is a little different way of looking at virtualization. So let's get in to it. The topics in this module include an introduction to the concept of application virtualization. Then we'll look at the architecture, how you could set this up. It depends on the size of your company. Then we'll look at some of the deployment possibilities. And then we'll take a look at configuring the App-V client to work with the back end of App-V. We'll also take a look at the sequencing of the applications using the App-V sequencer. And then we'll do a bit of a wrap up. Now, I get it, you probably haven't heard of App-V. This is something that Microsoft calls the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack. And a lot of these pieces are moving to the cloud, but this is one tool that might help you out if you're trying to get applications to run on Windows 10 and you just can't seem to get them working with the other ways that we've got such as Client Hyper-V or some of the application tools to help with compatibility. So in the what's in it for you, well, you can solve most any compatibility issue. It also doesn't hurt to understand the concept of a virtualized app and the aspect of the separation of that virtualized app making it able to run on any system. In addition, you get to know about bleeding edge technology so you can talk about App-V and people will be amazed. And finally, you'll be better prepared for the future of artificial intelligence. Right? After all, you've got a swiss army knife. Well anyway, watch on.

User Experience Virtualization (UE-V)
Hello there. Mark Wilkins checking in. We're going to talk about User Experience Virtualization. Everything's going virtual. Let's take a look at this UE-V concept and see what we're talking about. This is a component that as part of Window's 10 Enterprise has to be added in for Windows 10 Professional or Windows 7 or Windows 8. It's been around for a while. Let's take a look at the topics. So in this module, we'll figure out what UE-V is, we'll figure out the components, we'll figure out how to deploy it, and then we'll take a look at delivering settings to the end user with Group Policy. Then we'll look at the templates, figure out what they are, and then we'll do a wrap up. Now again, this is one of these topics you may not have heard of so you may be thinking what's in it for me? Why should I keep watching? Well, maybe you want to analyze the potential of UE-V for your corporation. Is there a possibility that creating a central backup of essential system settings for your end users could be a useful endeavor? And you want to understand the architecture of Windows 10 user profiles in even more detail. So I think these are key takeaways as to why you need to hang with me and keep watching. So I hope to see you in the next module.

Deploying Apps Using Microsoft Intune
Well, good morning, good evening, good afternoon. Whatever time zone you're in, welcome to this Deploying Apps Using Microsoft Intune course. My name's Mark Wilkins, and I'll be your guide through this topic. And if you have used Windows 10 for the last couple of years, Intune has been part of Windows 10. Now it's a little different, so let's take a look at this. The topics in this module. Introduction to just what Microsoft Intune is because you may not know what it is. How do I actually do the administration? There's a number of administrative portals we have to take a look at. Then we'll look at the devices that you'll enroll. It could be a Windows 10 box. It could be a phone. It could be an Android or Apple device. Then we'll look at adding apps, assigning apps, and after we've added the apps and assigned them to devices or users, we probably want to monitor those apps. And then we'll do a bit of a wrap up. Sound good? Let's get going.
