Windows SteadyState will no longer be available after December 31, 2010 — but who cares, it never supported Windows 7; however, many of SteadyState’s features can be replicated by using native Windows 7 features and free tools from Microsoft.
Windows 7 SteadyState documents are intended primarily for IT pros who configure shared-computer access in business environments, but partners who support shared-computer access in schools, libraries, and Internet cafes will also find the information useful.
- Creating a Steady State by Using Microsoft Technologies (.docx file) describes the native Windows 7 features and free tools from Microsoft that you can use to create a steady state on computers running Windows 7.
- Group Policy Settings for Creating a Steady State (.docx file) describes Group Policy settings that you can use to configure computer and user settings and prevent users from changing those settings.
- The Windows SteadyState Reference Spreadsheet Worksheet (.xlsx file), which you can use to look up and filter settings that this document and the reference describe. For example, you can quickly find information about settings that are related to Start Menu restrictions.
