Good morning, when the device is turned on, "Starting Device" appears with a default wallpaper, how can I configure this
wallpaper? I've been told Microsoft Launcher is for this, but I haven't been able to apply it to the kiosk mode simgle app device.
I await a response.

Hi @Andr_Marino,


Configuring the wallpaper on a dedicated device running in kiosk mode with a single Android app can be a bit tricky, but it is possible using Microsoft Launcher for Enterprise. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you set this up.

Step-by-Step Guide to Change Background Screen on Kiosk Mode Device

1. Ensure Microsoft Launcher for Enterprise is Installed

First, make sure that Microsoft Launcher for Enterprise is installed on your Android device.

  1. Install Microsoft Launcher for Enterprise:
    • Go to the Google Play Store on your device.
    • Search for Microsoft Launcher for Enterprise and install it.

2. Configure Microsoft Launcher as the Default Launcher

Set Microsoft Launcher as the default launcher for your device.

  1. Set Default Launcher:
    • Go to Settings on your Android device.
    • Navigate to Apps > Default apps > Home app.
    • Select Microsoft Launcher for Enterprise as the default home app.

3. Customize the Wallpaper Using Microsoft Launcher

Customize the wallpaper settings through Microsoft Launcher.

  1. Open Microsoft Launcher:

    • Open the Microsoft Launcher settings by long-pressing on the home screen and selecting Launcher Settings.
  2. Set the Wallpaper:

    • Navigate to Wallpaper in the Launcher settings.
    • Choose your desired wallpaper from your gallery or other sources.

4. Configure Kiosk Mode in Intune

Configure the device in Kiosk mode with the Microsoft Launcher applied.

  1. Create a Device Configuration Profile in Intune:

    • Sign in to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center.
    • Go to Devices > Configuration profiles > Create profile.
    • Choose Android Enterprise as the platform.
    • Select Kiosk as the profile type.
  2. Set Up Kiosk Mode:

    • In the Kiosk settings, choose Single app kiosk.
    • Select the app that you want to run in kiosk mode.
    • Ensure that Microsoft Launcher for Enterprise is applied as the launcher.
  3. Assign the Profile:

    • Assign the configuration profile to the groups or devices that should use the single app kiosk mode.

5. Test and Verify the Configuration

Restart the device to ensure the wallpaper is set correctly in kiosk mode.

  1. Restart Device:
    • Power off and then power on the device.
    • Verify that the "Starting Device" screen now shows the configured wallpaper.

Additional Tips

  • Permissions: Ensure that all necessary permissions are granted to Microsoft Launcher to change the wallpaper.
  • Profile Updates: If changes are not applied immediately, ensure the Intune profile is updated and synced with the device.


By following these steps, you should be able to configure the wallpaper for a dedicated device running in kiosk mode using Microsoft Launcher for Enterprise. Ensure that the launcher is set as the default and that the device configuration profile in Intune is correctly applied.

First of all, thank you for the answer, but there were some problems, I managed to download Microsoft Launcher on my device and set its wallpaper, but in the Intune configuration steps I couldn't, because in "create profile" there is no "kiosk" type, there is the type that I already use to configure my kiosk device which is "Device restrictions", and there is no place to configure the "Microsoft Launcher" as launcher, and another observation, for me to load my settings I format my device and read the token that I generate from my "Corporate-owned dedicated devices", when formatting it, won't it lose all settings made in the device's "Microsoft Launcher"?
