About windows 10 launch

Use Shell Launcher to create a Windows 10 kiosk

Using Shell Launcher, you can configure a device that runs an application as the user interface, replacing the default shell (explorer.exe). In Shell Launcher v1, available in Windows 10, you can only specify a Windows desktop application as the replacement shell. In Shell Launcher v2, available in Windows 10, version 1809 and above, you can also specify a UWP app as the replacement shell. To use Shell Launcher v2 in version 1809, you need to install the KB4551853 update.

Shell Launcher controls which application the user sees as the shell after sign-in. It does not prevent the user from accessing other desktop applications and system components.

Methods of controlling access to other desktop applications and system components can be used in addition to using the Shell Launcher. These methods include, but are not limited to:

  • Group Policy — example: Prevent access to registry editing tools
  • AppLocker — Application control policies
  • Mobile Device Management — Enterprise management of device security policies

You can apply a custom shell through Shell Launcher by using PowerShell. In Windows 10, version 1803 and later, you can also use mobile device management (MDM) to apply a custom shell through Shell Launcher.

Differences between Shell Launcher v1 and Shell Launcher v2

Shell Launcher v1 replaces explorer.exe , the default shell, with eshell.exe which can launch a Windows desktop application.

Shell Launcher v2 replaces explorer.exe with customshellhost.exe . This new executable file can launch a Windows desktop application or a UWP app.

In addition to allowing you to use a UWP app for your replacement shell, Shell Launcher v2 offers additional enhancements:

  • You can use a custom Windows desktop application that can then launch UWP apps, such as Settings and Touch Keyboard.
  • From a custom UWP shell, you can launch secondary views and run on multiple monitors.
  • The custom shell app runs in full screen, and can run other apps in full screen on user’s demand.

For sample XML configurations for the different app combinations, see Samples for Shell Launcher v2.

Requirements

Windows 10 doesn’t support setting a custom shell prior to OOBE. If you do, you won’t be able to deploy the resulting image.

Shell Launcher doesn’t support a custom shell with an application that launches a different process and exits. For example, you cannot specify write.exe in Shell Launcher. Shell Launcher launches a custom shell and monitors the process to identify when the custom shell exits. Write.exe creates a 32-bit wordpad.exe process and exits. Because Shell Launcher is not aware of the newly created wordpad.exe process, Shell Launcher will take action based on the exit code of Write.exe, such as restarting the custom shell.

A domain, Azure Active Directory, or local user account.

A Windows application that is installed for that account. The app can be your own company application or a common app like Internet Explorer.

Enable Shell Launcher feature

To set a custom shell, you first turn on the Shell Launcher feature, and then you can set your custom shell as the default using PowerShell or MDM.

To turn on Shell Launcher in Windows features

Go to Control Panel > Programs and features > Turn Windows features on or off.

Expand Device Lockdown.

Select Shell Launcher and OK.

Alternatively, you can turn on Shell Launcher using Windows Configuration Designer in a provisioning package, using SMISettings > ShellLauncher , or you can use the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM.exe) tool.

To turn on Shell Launcher using DISM

Open a command prompt as an administrator.

Enter the following command.

Configure a custom shell in MDM

You can use XML and a custom OMA-URI setting to configure Shell Launcher in MDM.

XML for Shell Launcher configuration

The following XML sample works for Shell Launcher v1:

For Shell Launcher v2, you can use UWP app type for Shell by specifying the v2 namespace, and use v2:AppType to specify the type, as shown in the following example. If v2:AppType is not specified, it implies the shell is Win32 app.

In the XML for Shell Launcher v2, note the AllAppsFullScreen attribute. When set to True, Shell Launcher will run every app in full screen, or maximized for desktop apps. When this attribute is set to False or not set, only the custom shell app runs in full screen; other apps launched by the user will run in windowed mode.

Custom OMA-URI setting

In your MDM service, you can create a custom OMA-URI setting to configure Shell Launcher v1 or v2. (The XML that you use for your setting will determine whether you apply Shell Launcher v1 or v2.)

The OMA-URI path is ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/AssignedAccess/ShellLauncher .

For the value, you can select data type String and paste the desired configuration file content into the value box. If you wish to upload the xml instead of pasting the content, choose data type String (XML file) .

After you configure the profile containing the custom Shell Launcher setting, select All Devices or selected groups of devices to apply the profile to. Don’t assign the profile to users or user groups.

Configure a custom shell using PowerShell

For Shell Launcher v1, modify the following PowerShell script as appropriate. The comments in the sample script explain the purpose of each section and tell you where you will want to change the script for your purposes. Save your script with the extension .ps1, open Windows PowerShell as administrator, and run the script on the kiosk device.

default action, custom action, exit code

Shell launcher defines 4 actions to handle app exits, you can customize shell launcher and use these actions based on different exit code.

Value Description
0 Restart the shell
1 Restart the device
2 Shut down the device
3 Do nothing

These action can be used as default action, or can be mapped to a specific exit code. Refer to Shell Launcher to see how these codes with Shell Launcher WMI.

Windows 10. Возвращение панели быстрого запуска (Quick Launch)

Как известно, в Windows XP была удобная Панель быстрого доступа или Quick Launch. Из более новых версий Windows ее убрали непонятно зачем и некоторые пользователи могут испытывать ностальгию по данному инструменту.

Для тех, кто скучает по панели быстрого доступа я покажу, как ее вернуть в Windows 10. Для Win7 эта инструкция тоже подойдет. Итак, приступаем!

Кликните по Панели задач правой кнопкой мышки, выберите Панели и затем Создать панель инструментов…

Но перед этим скопируйте в буфер обмена адрес, он вам дальше понадобится:

%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

Можете, конечно, вручную пройти по маршруту:

\Users\[ваш username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch,

но это долго и неспортивно. К тому же, должен быть включен показ скрытых папок и файлов.

Теперь предстоит выбор папки для Quick Launch. Для того мы и копировали адрес на первом шаге, чтобы сейчас его вставить в поле Папка внизу и нажать кнопку Выбор папки.

Когда мы нажали на Выбор папки, окно закроется и появится панель быстрого доступа внизу справа.

Чтобы сделать Панель быстрого доступа более компактным можно убрать заголовки и подписи. Кликните правой кнопкой по панели Quick Launch и в меню снимите галочки с пунктов Показывать подписи и Показывать заголовок.

Теперь панель приобрела знакомый вид. Теперь ее можно растянуть, зажав мышкой две вертикальные палочки слева от панельки. Если их нет, то проверьте, что Панель задач не закреплена (Правой кнопкой мыши по панели задач -> Свойства -> Закрепить панель задач). Чтобы перетащить Quick Launch ближе к кнопке Пуск, зажмите мышкой и тащите влево до упора (см. рис.)

Когда упор закончится, вид будет примерно вот такой. На неё можно мышкой перетаскивать иконки программ для добавления, удалять, тасовать мышкой между собой, в общем, вам понравится)

How to: Perform a Clean Install or Reinstall of Windows 10

Please be sure to follow me on Twitter @adacosta for the latest tips, tricks and updates in the world of Windows 10. —

Technical Level : Intermediate

Summary
If you have installed a recent release of Windows in the past 5 years, you pretty much know what it will be like to install Windows 10. In this article, we take a look at performing a clean install. This includes starting a clean install from within a running version of Windows or a hard disk/SSD with no previous Windows installations.

  • Perform a clean install by booting from install media (DVD or USB thumb drive)
  • Perform a clean install using Reset in Windows 10 orWindows 10 Refresh Tools (Start Fresh)
  • Perform a clean install from within a running version of Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10

Previously, Windows 7, Windows 8.0 and Windows 8.1 users needed to have either of those versions of Windows installed and activated in order to qualify for the free upgrade offer. For users who needed to perform a clean install of Windows 10 from the outset, it was a two step process of first validating the machine through the upgrade routine, ensure the Windows 10 Upgrade was activated, then proceed to perform a Reset.

Starting with versions Windows 10 1511 or later, users no longer have to go through this process.

What is the Digital Entitlement or Digital License?

When you upgrade from a previous version of Windows, what happens is the hardware, (your PC), will get a digital license. This is a unique signature of the computer which is stored on Microsoft Activation Servers. The Windows 7 or Windows 8 genuine license you were previously running will be exchanged for a diagnostics product key.

Anytime you need to reinstall Windows 10 on that machine, just proceed to reinstall Windows 10. It will automatically reactivate. The only exception where this applies is dependent on the license you upgraded from. If you change your motherboard and originally you upgraded from a Windows 7 OEM or Windows 8 OEM license, then your Digital Entitlement will be invalidated. You will need to purchase a new full version license.

So, there is no need to know or get a product key, if you need to reinstall Windows 10, you can use your Windows 7 or Windows 8 product key or use the reset function in Windows 10.

Perform a Clean Install on an Empty Hard Disk/SSD or Reinstall by Booting from Install Media (DVD or USB Thumb Drive)

Once you have your Windows 10 installation media ready, all you need to do is boot from the disc or USB thumb drive to begin setup. If you don’t have install media, see instructions: How to download official Windows 10 ISO files

Review the following guide for instructions and details about configuring your BIOS or UEFI boot settings for DVD, CD, USB or SD Card.

Once your computer is set to boot from the DVD, you should see this option. If you are installing from a retail Windows 10 USB thumb drive, you will be asked to select either 32 or 64 bit Windows 10. Learn more here

The Windows logo will appear on screen, this might be here for a while, as long as you see the animating dots, everything should be ok.

Select your Language, Time and Keyboard method then click Next.

Click Install now

Windows 10 setup will prompt you for a product key during installation a couple times. If you originally upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 click the option ‘I don’t have a key’ and ‘Do this later’ . If you have a Windows 10 product key, you can proceed to enter it.

Setup will also prompt you to select the edition you have a license for — Home or Pro. Please make sure you choose the right edition. If you choose the wrong edition, your only option will be to perform a clean install again.

The copy of Windows 10 you download and upgrade from will correspond with the edition of Windows you have installed, if it does not, this is why you might be experiencing problems activating:

  • Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Windows 8.0 Core, Windows 8.1 Core should install Windows 10 Home
  • Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8.0 Pro, Windows 8.1 Pro should install Windows 10 Pro

Wait while setup prepares to copy files

Accept the license terms then click Next

Click Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)

NOTE : Sometimes Windows 10 setup can become confused if it see’s a thumb drive. You might get a driver missing error or something to that effect. If you do, restart setup, but this time, when you arrive at the following screen, disconnect your thumb drive then go through Custom options. When setup is ready copy files, it will prompt you to reconnect the installation source (your USB).

Select the drive then click New

NOTE : If you have multiple partitions listed, select each one (starting at the bottom), then click delete until there is only a single (one) unallocated drive displayed in the window.

Select the unallocated drive listed, click New, click Apply then OK

This will split the drive into multiple partitions, select the Primary partition then click Next.

NOTE: The System Reserved partition is where recovery files are kept for diagnostics and repairing damaged Windows 10 files; or even reinstall Windows 10.

Wait while Windows installs

When this phase of setup is complete, Windows will automatically restart then reboot into setup again.

Windows is detecting and installing your hardware. After this is complete, Windows will restart one last time.

Out of Box Experience

The Out of Box Experience page is where you get to configure detailed settings in Windows, which includes creating a user account, configure privacy, sync PC settings and install modern applications.

Perform a Clean Install Using Reset, Recovery Drive or Refresh Tools (Start Fresh) in Windows 10


If you already have Windows 10 installed, you can use the built in Reset function, Recovery Drive or Refresh Tools (Start Fresh) in Windows 10 do so. Learn how in the following article:

How to Perform a Clean Install by Starting Setup from Within a Running Version of Windows 10

If you are running Windows 7 or Windows 8.0, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, launch Windows 10 setup using ISO Media:

During setup, at the Ready to install screen, click Change what to keep link

Select Nothing

Click Next to being the installation

How do I check my activation status?
