How can I ensure that when someone closes their Virtual Desktop that it’s doesn’t stop anything running in it or lock the screen or anything?
I have the WVD pool joined to AD so I have full group policy options if needed but do I use Terminal Server GPO or RDS GPO or what?

@John Quile By default the session will remain active and won't lock. You can use existing RDS GPO's to control the behavior.
