Tips and Tricks for your Windows Tablet

Tip 1 - Use Assigned Access on Windows 10

Before using this feature, you should consider that you can only assign apps that come bundled with Windows 10 and the ones from the Store. Classic desktop apps support is only available for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education.

Also, Assigned access can only be set up on Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Mobile, Education, and Enterprise.

Step 1 - Enable Assigned Access

a. Using your administrator account, create a new Standard User account. 

b. Use the Windows key + I to open the Settings app. 

c. Click Accounts > Family & other people.

d. Under Other users, click the Set up assigned access link.

e. Click the Choose an account button, and select the standard account you want to assign to run a single app.

f. Click the Choose an account button, and select the standard account you want to assign to run a single app. 

g. Click the Choose an app button, and select the supported app to run on Assigned access.

h. Restart your computer and then sign-in with account you just configured.

Step 1 - How to Disable Assigned Access

a. Use the Windows key + I keyboard shortcut to open the Settings app.

b. Click Accounts.

c. Click Family & other people.

d. Under Other users, click the Set up assigned access link.

e. Click the account currently setup, and click Don't use assigned access.

Once you're done using the account, because you don't have access to the Start menu, you'll need to use the Ctrl + Alt + Del keyboard shortcut to sign out of the account. Then to completely terminate the account session, simply restart your computer by clicking the Restartbutton from the Power menu on the Lock screen.

Tip 2 - Managing account sign-in options on Windows 10

In the Sign-in options page, you can manage many ways to authenticate with Windows 10 quickly. Using these settings, you can change your current password, set up Windows Hello using a PIN or picture password, and you can even turn on Dynamic lock to lock your device as you step away.

Setting Up Dynamic Lock

a. Open Settings.

b. Click on Devices.

c. Click on Bluetooth & other devices.

d. Click the Add Bluetooth or other devices button.

e. Click the Bluetooth option.

f. Ready your Bluetooth device for pairing

g. Select your device from the list.

h. Continue with the on-screen directions to complete the pairing.

i. While in Settings, click on Accounts.

j. Click on Sign-in options.

k. Under "Dynamic lock," turn on the Allow Windows to detect when you're away and automatically lock the device toggle switch.

Once you've completed the steps, if you step away with your Bluetooth device, Windows 10 will wait 30 seconds, and then it'll lock your PC automatically.
