I have enabled filtering of several keys in my answer file such as Alt-Tab and CTRL-ALT-DEL but they are still active when I install the OS. I have Windows-Foundation-Package loaded with Client-KeyboardFilter enabled. Curiously, the property "Enabled" for Microsoft-Windows-Embedded-KeyboardFilterService shows disabled however it can't be changed in the Windows System Image Manager. What am I missing?

    In the answer file make sure that you have enabled Client-DeviceLockdown as well as Client-KeyboardFilter.

    HI @DavidTorgerson-1011,

    Probably, the easiest way to do that is capture the image file.

    Then you can enable it by using DISM.

    md c:\wim

    dism /mount-wim /wimfile:c:\bootmedia\sources\install.wim /index:1 /MountDir:c:\wim

    Dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:Client-KeyboardFilter

    dism /unmount-wim /MountDir:c:\wim /Commit
