Wireless projection experience

One of the things we’ve heard from you is that it’s hard to know when you’re wirelessly projecting and how to disconnect your session when started from file explorer or from an app. In Windows 10, version 1809, you’ll see a control banner at the top of your screen when you’re in a session (just like you see when using remote desktop). The banner keeps you informed of the state of your connection, allows you to quickly disconnect or reconnect to the same sink, and allows you to tune the connection based on what you are doing. This tuning is done via Settings, which optimizes the screen-to-screen latency based on one of the three modes:

  • Game mode minimizes the screen-to-screen latency to make gaming over a wireless connection possible
  • Video mode increases the screen-to-screen latency to ensure the video on the big screen plays back smoothly
  • Productivity modes strikes a balance between game mode and video mode; the screen-to screen-latency is responsive enough that typing feels natural, while ensuring videos don’t glitch as often

Windows Autopilot self-deploying mode

Windows 10 Autopilot self-deploying mode enables a zero touch device provisioning experience. Simply power on the device, plug it into the Ethernet, and the device is fully configured automatically by Windows Autopilot.

This self-deploying capability removes the current need to have an end user interact by pressing the “Next” button during the deployment process.

You can utilize Windows Autopilot self-deploying mode to register the device to an AAD tenant, enroll in your organization’s MDM provider, and provision policies and applications, all with no user authentication or user interaction required.

To learn more about Autopilot self-deploying mode and to see step-by-step instructions to perform such a deployment, Windows Autopilot self-deploying mode.

Kiosk setup experience

We introduced a simplified assigned access configuration experience in Settings that allows device administrators to easily set up a PC as a kiosk or digital sign. A wizard experience walks you through kiosk setup including creating a kiosk account that will automatically sign in when a device starts.

To use this feature, go to Settings, search for assigned access, and open the Set up a kiosk page.

Microsoft Edge kiosk mode running in single-app assigned access has two kiosk types.
