One of the many cool things about Microsoft Intune is the granular configuration of Windows 10 devices using the native functions available us today. In this little post we will look at just how easy is it to create a corporate Windows 10 layout and publish to all of your client desktops automatically.
The general prerequisites for this feature is that your Windows 10 desktops are synchronized and present in Azure Active Directory.
Export the Start Layout
When you have the Start screen layout that you want your users to see, use the Export-StartLayout cmdlet in Windows PowerShell to export the Start screen to an .xml file.
- From Start, open Windows PowerShell.
- At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, enter the following command:
Export-StartLayout –path $env:userprofile\desktop\StartLayout.xml
Applying a Start layout
Once you have an exported Start Layout you can use the XML file to apply this start layout to your entire organization using Microsoft Intune. Browse to your Intune Portal and go to Device Configuration –> Profile
Once in the profile properties, go to Settings and look for “Start” as at this point you can upload your Windows 10 start menu layout. If you may
Once you have saved your configured and your Windows 10 device has checked in, it will receive your new and improved Start Menu
