How can I resize a Windows 365 Cloud PC
In this post, Enterprise Mobility MVP Naill Brady is looking into how resizing a Cloud PC actually works and what you can expect.
“Cloud PCs can come in certain preset configurations based on templates, or you can choose to customize your own. Sometimes you may find that a Cloud PC is not powerful enough for a user or is too powerful and not used to its full potential (low utilization). With the Windows 365 Cloud PC resize (preview) remote action you can resize low utilization (or high utilization) PCs on the fly to get the most out of your investment.”

Cleanup Cloud PC devices in Azure AD
In this post, Windows 365 MVP Morten Pedholt shows you how you can clean up your Azure AD from orphaned Cloud PC objects.

The Windows 365 app
In this post, Windows 365 MVP Ola Ström takes a look at the new Windows 365 app which was released during Ignite.
“If you have ever used Windows 365 through the browser, you know what I’m talking about. There is NO WAY to reboot, restore or troubleshoot a Cloud PC from within the Remote Desktop app, you can simply just connect to your session, and for anymore “advanced” user action you have had to rely on the browser.”

Trying out the Windows 365 Client
In this post, Windows 365 MVP Doug Petrole takes a look at the new Windows 365 app and gives his thought on the new application.
“My first thought was, what does this new client deliver that we don’t have today? It has to be a notable step forward, otherwise it wouldn’t be worth the time to build a new app – especially since it’d largely be a duplication of effort. Instead, what I found is that the new client delivers a lot of the improvements the Windows 365 web client does.”
