Configure Branding for Windows Devices

Organizations prefer to enforce a particular branding through out the enterprise devices. Once your Windows 10 devices are enrolled to MobiLock, you can use the Branding option to upload your wallpapers and then apply to the devices. In this document we will see how to create & apply a Branding configuration.

Before You Begin

  1. Login to MobiLock Dashboard
  2. Have access to one enrolled Window 10 PC.
  3. Have couple of wallpaper images stored on your local computer.

Branding

Branding helps in applying a custom Wallpaper, both on Home screen and Lock screen of your Windows 10 managed devices. From the Dashboard you can easily create a custom branding and apply it to Device Profiles. Follow the steps below to create a branding and then publish.

Setting a wallpaper works only on Windows 10 Pro versions.

Create a Branding

  1. Navigate to Device Management > Branding. Click on CREATE NEW BRAND.
  2. Enter a name for your Branding so that you can refer to it when required and click on Windows tab.
  3. Under the Windows tab, you would see options to upload a Home screen wallpaper and Lock screen wallpaper.
  4. Click on Upload Home Screen Wallpaper and select a wallpaper from your local computer.
  5. Once the selected image is uploaded, you would see a visualization of how it may look on the device.


    Note that the depending upon screen resolution the image might appear differently than represented on Dashboard.
  6. Similarly click on the Upload Lock Screen Wallpaper, you can upload a wallpaper for lock screen. Once you have uploaded a lock-screen wallpaper, you can toggle between the visual representation using the Windows logo at bottom.
  7. Once you have reviewed your changes, click on SAVE BRAND button to save the brand. Once the brand is saved it will start appearing in the list of brands.

Publishing/Applying a Branding

  1. The next step is to apply the newly created brand to your devices. To do so click on Apply Brand option on the branding card,
  2. From the list of Device Profiles, select the device profile(s) where you want to publish this brand. Once you have selected the profiles, click on APPLY.
  3. Wallpaper changes are applied once the Windows 10 device restarts or the user Logs off and Logs In to the account.

Windows branding can be applied to Windows Device Profiles only. It cannot be directly applied to devices.
Once you have created a Brand, you can apply this Brand to a Device Profile by editing the profile and selecting the Brand in Settings > Branding section.
