We use a purchased tool http://www.forensit.com/desktop-management.html.
Minimizing the number of group policies being applied, local and domain.
Would you be willing to share your thoughts, tips, tricks, recommendations and/or best practices in minimizing student computer lab login times?
Our classroom and open lab computers are running Windows 7 or 10 with DeepFreeze. We are not currently using roaming profiles or SSDs. We require students to log into the computers with their domain account – which of course requires time for the local profile build. We have been testing a number of configurations to reduce our times – but would like to hear from other universities as to what methodologies have worked well for them.
Thank you for the consideration.
