Windows 10 virtual machine remote access

Alagar 1 Reputation point


I have a VM with Win10, enabled RDP working fine.
The requirement is when a user takes remote on this VM, it should be in full screen (No minimize or close) with out accessing the local machine resources.
which means no ALT+TAB or CRTL+TAB.
User should have the access on the VM only, till logoff. Example: when we do online exam, after the application opens, we cannot access any other local resource till we exit the application.

    There is no officially supported method to keep the remote desktop in full screen or disable the minimize and close buttons.

    If you would like to prevent users from redirecting local machine resources to the remote desktop for security purpose, you can try to configure below group policies on the VM.

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Device and Resource Redirection
