Creating Windows 8 Tablet Registry Configurations

May 08, 2015

You can create Windows 8 Tablet registry configurations to allow for a single point for device registry management. A set of registry keys can only exist in a configuration. You can create different settings and then deploy them selectively to some or all of the mobile devices under management. Once you create the registry settings, you can then deploy them to your Windows 8 devices using a Device Manager deployment package.

  1. In the Device Manager web console, on the Policies tab, under Windows 8 Tablet, click Registry Configurations.
  2. Click New > Configuration.
