Hi 

I don't feel comfortable asking this because turning the Secure Desktop off is not a good practice, but is this article and the methods relevant to Windows 10 as well? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/guided-help-turn-off-the-secure-desktop-in-windows-7-d91d1...

I just need to get this working as a test and show it to someone.

I changed the value both in the local security policy and Registry but I still get a black screen if I try to run an application as admin on the remoted-in device using Quick Assist. We use Intune but Windows 10 Security Baseline is not applied to this test device. Do I need to look at other user account control settings in the security policy or something else too? 

Many thanks in advance for your help!
