Top 10 modern management posts of 2020

I thought it might be nice to end the year 2020 with a short collection of my most viewed blog articles in 2020. For me the number one is not a real surprise, measured on the feedback it is a real helper for many out there. My own guess would have predicted some other posts in the top 10 , but this is what most of you looked for on my blog. Without further ado here we go:

  1. The easy way to deploy device certificates with Intune
    …run through how to setup SCEPman, a cloud based app service to easily deploy user or device certificates via SCEP protocol.
  1. Quick Assist the built-in Remote Control in Windows 10
    …especially during work from home and the need for support of end users, this seems to help a lot of people, how to accomplish remote support with built-in tools even with UAC enabled.
Deep Dive Series Intune, PowerShell Scripts and Win32 Apps
  1. Deep dive Microsoft Intune Management Extension – PowerShell Scripts
    Part 2, Deep dive Microsoft Intune Management Extension – PowerShell Scripts
    Part 3, Deep dive Microsoft Intune Management Extension – Win32 Apps
    …the deep dive series about the Intune Management Extension (IME) has constant interest. Understanding inner workings is key for successful implementation and troubleshooting.
Intune Policy Processing
  1. Intune Policy Processing on Windows 10 explained
    Changed Intune Policy Processing Behavior on Windows 10
    …again some deep understanding of the inner workings of the MDM processing is key.

  1. Triggering Intune Management Extension (IME) Sync
    …a small helper to simplify the sync trigger of the Intune Management Extension (IME).
Intune Language change completely
  1. How to completely change Windows 10 language with Intune
    …a post which involved quite a bit of research to figure this out, to finally reliably change Windows 10 language, even the logon screen etc. All this even after the user is already logged on, like we have in an Autopilot scenario.
Delivery Optimization and MCC
  1. Delivery Optimization with Intune and Microsoft Connected Cache (MCC)
    …my early tries to utilize MCC with Intune cloud-only devices and a glimpse on the future of MCC standalone.

  1. New Edge sync policy in action
    …enforcing the sync, was long awaited and can now be configured. A simple walk through.
Intune PowerSchell Scripts
  1. Get back your Intune PowerShell Scripts
    …as Intune does not have any download PowerShell scripts option, I provide a small script to accomplish this.
Autopilot Manager
  1. Introducing Autopilot Manager
    …I guess this is my favorite as it was fun to do and due to the late release date in 2020 it would have been a candidate for a top position :-). Anyway, a small helper to import unknown Autopilot devices with a small client program and a Azure app service.

I think there is nothing more to say to this collection, dive into the individual post from interest or have a look into the other ones via my start page and finally “Happy New Year to everyone!
