Intune – customize the start menu on Windows 10 1703

This post will show how you can deploy a custom start menu on a Windows 10 Pro/Enterprise machine enrolled with Intune by using the Intune portal in Azure.

This post assumes you have customized the start menu on a test machine, and exported the start menu layout to an XML file. For a guide on doing this, see Customize and export Start layout.  My test machine is Windows 10 1703 Enterprise joined to Azure AD and enrolled in Intune.

In the new Intune portal in Azure (https://portal.azure.com) go to Intune > Device Configuration > Profiles > Create Profile

StartMDM01

Give the profile a name, and select Windows 10 and later for the Platform, and select Device restrictions for the Profile type.

Now scroll down and select Start, then click on the Browse button to upload your custom start menu which you generated earlier from your test machine using the Microsoft guide (Customize and export Start layout)

StartMDM02

Click on OK then OK again,and click on Create.

Now we will Assign the policy to a user group. Click on Assignments, then Select groups to include, then select the group, then click on Select, and then Save.

StartMDM04

On the Windows 10 machine enrolled in Intune, you can force a sync by going to Start > Settings > Accounts > Access work or school > Select the account then Info > Sync

After it has synced, once you log off and log back on, you can now see that the start menu has applied.
