Customize Software Center – SCCM 1710

Since Microsoft released SCCM Current Branch 1710, you can now add enterprise branding elements and choose to hide certain tabs in Software Center. This example will show how you can customize Software Center by deploying new custom client settings, and the user experience in a Windows 10 machine.

In the Administration section of the SCCM console, select Client Settings. You can choose to use the Default Client Settings, but I would recommend creating some new custom client settings for any tests, as the Default Client Settings apply to all machines.

Give the custom client settings a name, and select Software Center. Once you check the Software Center box, you will see the settings now appear on the top left.

I have selected Yes next to the arrow, given my company name, and also selected a custom colour scheme, and uploaded a company logo. Note that the maximum dimensions are 100×400 for the logo, and it cannot be larger than 750kb in size. Here you can also choose to hide any tabs you wish.

I will now deploy the custom settings to a collection, and then initiate a machine policy evaluation on my test client. After a few minutes, open Software Center and you will notice the new changes.

This is what my new Software Center looks like. I have not chosen to hide any tabs, but I have selected the custom image on the top left, given the company name (Nhogarth.net) and chosen the custom blue colour.
