    Hi Microsoft,

     

    Is there going to be a SteadyState console that can be used to control multiple computers?

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Malik,

     

    Thank you for posting here and suggestion on SteadyState!

     

    I haven't heard of any plan to add a central management console for SteadyState until now. However, I also think it will be perfect if there is. As you may know, SteadyState is free software designed for home user and small environment such as a kiosk. Under larger network such as domains, other management tools such as Group Policy and Systems Management Server (SMS) are always recommended first. Different design purpose may lead to difference feature. Thank you for your understanding.

    Based on my experience, if you would like to manage restrictions, you can consider group policies as nearly all of SteadyState restrictions can be deployed through group policy or registry changes. You can refer to the following thread for more information:
