There's a set of customizable settings (GPO's) that will be applied to all the collections in your deployment.

You can control the mentioned GPO settings separately per RD Collection. To access the configuration, go to Cloud Desktops section - RD Collections. Once there, mark the collection you want to edit the settings for and click EDIT.

You will get the setting screen where you can edit each option moving the slider to enable / disable the setting:

Enable local drive access, Printer redirection, Enable RD Session Timeout: when one of these settings is changed, server must be restarted in order for the change to take effect.

Local Drive access:
users will have access to their local drives directly from Cloud. The setting is tied to the clipboard, so when enabled, users will be able to copy and paste between the local desktop and cloud workspace.

End-user Windows Task Manager access: users will have to log off their session and log back in to see the changes

Enable user session timeout:
best practice is to have the policy enabled so users are disconnected and then logged off after certain time of inactivity.

Note: Please note that the system can take several minutes to save the settings since it applies the new policy in the domain.
After changing the
Task manager access policy, make sure the users sign out and back in for the change to take effect.
When changing
Printer redirection/ Local Drive access and End-user timeout, you need to reboot the session host servers in order for the change to apply.
