Hi

We use windows 8.1 Dell Pro venue Tablet in our Organisation. One of the user has installed some of the apps .When he logs in as himself into the tablet  he can see all the installed apps.
Is there a way to setup so that what ever the apps that he has installed is available on all user desktop, so that any one log into the tablet see all newly installed APPS.
OR is there a different way to set up this.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

you can enable apps via group policy but apps are a per-user item as a specific user may have purchased the app and other users also have to purchase the app as the app is licensed per user.

Hi David

In windows 7 we can share applications, but in windows 8 , it is unfortunate we cant share the apps.
Do you think a generic login will be ok for multiple users to use the apps on the same tablet.
