Microsoft launches Lockdown Designer app
Microsoft has released their Lockdown Designer app for Windows 10 devices. The app allows for the customization of Windows 10 Mobile devices through the creation of special lockdown xml files which can be installed on the selected devices. This is mainly intended for companies who need to manage which apps and functions are accessed by employees on their work phones but could have some other uses as well such as creating special phone settings for hands-on demos in a store for example. Here’s the official app description:
Lockdown Designer app helps you configure and create a lockdown XML file that you can apply to devices running Windows 10 Mobile, version 1703. A lockdown XML file determines which apps and settings are available on the mobile device. You can configure a custom layout for the Start screen using a remote simulation in the app. Lockdown Designer also helps you define multiple roles for device users, and configure the apps and settings for each role separately.
