We have multiple clients that work in the healthcare sector.
Is there any user friendly method to have a kiosk-like mode when people just fill in their creds (2 times no problem) and can log on to their desktop?
Right now we see that thinclients with the Remote Desktop App need to subscribe to the web feed with their user, when another user comes in, they need to reregister their web feed again etc etc.
This makes switching users quite the hassle.
We are using Windows 10 IoT Enterprise clients, ofcourse the HTML5 client would be a good solution but we see that thinclients struggle to keep up with performance on HTML5, therefore we can only use the Remote Desktop App.

We would like a solution for WVD similar to the RDS thinclients in use today.
This means that the thinclient is user independant (no login needed) and that the user needs to login on the WVD environment (just like the WVD webclient).
Right now we have the following issues:
a. Using HTML5 client, the login process is pretty similar but thinclients struggle with HTML5 performance because the client has such low system resources (even the latest Dell/HP Win 10 IoT Enterprise ones)
b. Using the Remote Desktop App, a user needs to register to the web feed every time, which is cumbersome. This can be resolved with domain joining the client but this does not help users forgetting to log out twice (once from WVD, once from thinclient).
I hope my explanation is a bit more clear now.

@knowlite : Yes, the explanation helps! If I'm understanding you correctly, the web client sign in and sign out experience is easy, since the user just needs to log out in the top right corner or close the browser completely. However, the performance isn't optimal and you'd like that same ease of experience for the desktop client.
I'm not sure if we have anything right now to address that, but I've forwarded this thread internally to the appropriate folks to see if they have anything to comment.

What problem do you get? What exactly do you want to do?

@knowlite I was having a really hard time getting the modern RDS client even installed because the LTSC version does not have the Microsoft Store it as all. I found this from GitHub that allowed me to install the Microsoft Store on it, then I was able to download the modern RDS client and use PowerShell to set it in Kiosk mode. All is good now.

@knowliteYeah, I am using HP T520 thin clients and I installed the Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC on one for a POC. I like the idea of having it in Kiosk mode so that the only thing someone has to log into is their VDI session. Plus it keeps people from being able to fiddle with the OS.

If you still need help on this, here is how it could look on a IGEL OS endpoint (Thin Client).
