can apply to either machines or users. In Studio, Computer settings (policy
settings applying to machines) define the behavior of virtual desktops and are
applied when a virtual desktop starts. Note that these settings apply even when
there are no active user sessions on the virtual desktop. User settings define
the user experience when connecting to virtual desktops using ICA. User
policies are applied whenever a user connects or reconnects to a virtual
desktop using ICA. If a user connects to a virtual desktop using RDP or logs on
directly at the console, user policies are not applied. When policies are
applied within your environment, the system determines which settings relate to
machines and which relate to users and applies those settings accordingly.
policies and settings are collected into two categories: Computer Configuration
and User Configuration.
