Windows 365 Frontline Cloud PCs

Frontline Cloud PCs support remote actions like Enterprise Cloud PCs. One difference is that a Frontline Cloud PC power state is determined by the end user. When a Frontline Cloud PC is on, remote actions are started immediately. If a Frontline Cloud PC is powered off, remote actions start as soon as the Cloud PC is powered on. When a Cloud PC is powered on, it uses a license that others can't use. When the Cloud PC is powered off, the license is freed up so others can use it.

You can view the power state for Frontline Cloud PCs in the Intune portal on the devices Properties page.

You can remotely power on and off a Frontline Cloud PC. When you power on a Frontline Cloud PC, a license is automatically consumed. When you power off a Frontline Cloud PC:

  • Any user currently signed in is signed off.
  • Unsaved data on the Cloud PC is lost.

You can also power on and power off Frontline Cloud PCs in bulk to help with:

  • Run an update.
  • Apply an application across all Cloud PCs.
  • Make sure Cloud PCs are on for an incoming shift.
  • Manage concurrency limits.

Within the Intune portal, you can get to the bulk actions tab by going to Devices> All devices > Bulk device actions.
