Intune / AVD – Settings for Azure Virtual Desktop are now available in Intune

If you are using Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD, formerly known as Windows Virtual Desktop – WVD), you know there has been few settings being made available through group policy (GPO) such as watermarking or screen capture protection.

Unfortunately, until now, there was no settings available in Intune to manage such settings, unless using when possible custom policy configuration or script to deploy corresponding registry keys.

Well, good news as now these AVD settings are now available in Intune.

To manage them connect to your Intune portal ( to create (or update) a device configuration profile using the Settings catalog profile type


Then locate the Azure Virtual Desktop section under Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host


Off course, this would works only if your AVD hosts are being managed by Intune.
