New features of Windows 10 version 1803

Student Name: Luis Soto   Student ID:1425982   Submission for class:ITSUP-108-200(Enterprise Desktop Support)   I will recap the entirety of Windows 10 version 1809 for windows pc. Starting off with the Windows 10 Autopilot self-deploying mode which was introduced in Windows 1803, where it was made to allow any new Windows 10 device to be user ready without any manual set up. The autopilot serves as a way to power the Windows device, connect the device to the internet, and to automatically set up new devices into the system. It can enroll devices, policies, applications, certificates, and users with little to no interaction making it fast and efficient. In order to start self-deploying mode, you have to create an autopilot profile with your configuration in mind, and you want to create a device group in Azure directory to assign profiles to that group. After those steps are completed then it's time to boot the device while making sure you have Wi-fi to complete the process. Another feature added to 1809 is the new features on security virus and threat protection. Which prevents ransomware while making sure to block suspicious apps that might cause harm to your pc. The new feature added to security is Device performance and health which lets you know how well your pc, and can check Windows updates, storage, device drivers, along with battery life. Improvements were made to Windows Defender this update which has improved on giving the standalone user an install option to configure windows defender in settings without using register keys. In this update they let anyone configure their preferences when it comes...
