- Content filtering apps
- Test-taking solutions
- Accessibility tools

For a list of compatible apps, or to request an app that's not supported, see available apps. If there are specific apps you want to assign that aren't compatible or included with Windows 11 SE, request to have them reviewed and added to an exception list.
If you assign an app to a device running Windows 11 SE and receive
0x87D300D9 error code with a
Failed state, then:
- Make sure the app is on the available apps list, or add your own app.
- If you submitted an application request to add your own app, and it was approved, check that the app meets package requirements.
- If the app isn't approved, then it won't run on Windows 11 SE. Add your own app or use an app that runs in a web browser, such as a web app or PWA.
