In this chapter, we have learned about how to configure the Master Horizon desktop image and about what makes it different from configuring a traditional desktop.

We have discussed how to customize the Windows file system cluster size before beginning the installation process, how to permanently remove Windows store apps, disabling application native updaters, Windows optimizations that can reduce the desktop resource requirements, and when to use a custom Windows default user profile.

In Chapter 14, Managing Horizon SSL Certificates , we will discuss how to manage and replace the default Horizon self-signed SSL certificates.
