User Experience Virtualization

User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) debuted in MDOP along with Windows 8. This enterprise feature allows administrators to centralize applications and Windows settings in the data center, enabling users to access their desktop applications virtually anywhere, on their choice of devices.

The most recent release, UE-V 2.1 SP1, adds support for Windows 10. It supports Windows Store apps, including apps purchased through the Store and line-of-business (LOB) apps deployed internally. By default, it synchronizes many Windows settings (desktop backgrounds and taskbar settings, for example); Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft Office 2013 applications; Internet Explorer 11; all preinstalled Windows apps; and a number of Windows desktop applications. New in SP1 is support for roaming network printers.

A Company Settings Center allows users to control which settings are synced across devices, troubleshoot issues that occur with those devices, and sync settings manually rather than wait for an automatic sync.

Although UE-V roams user settings, Folder Redirection complements UE-V by centralizing user data folders (Documents, Pictures, Videos, and so on) in the data center, making these folders accessible to users from any PC they log on to by using their domain credentials. Users have full-time access to their documents, pictures, videos, and other files from any PC.

A new feature called Work Folders, introduced in Windows 8.1, offers significant improvements over Folder Redirection and Offline Files. (Most notable is the ability to sync files on devices that aren’t domain joined.).
