This policy’s main aspect is providing hands-on experience setting up the Do Not Display Network Selection UI Policy Using Intune.
Do Not Display Network Selection UI Policy configuration provides the ability to manage the interaction with network options displayed on the login screen. Enabling this policy setting ensures that alterations to the PC’s network connectivity state require signing into Windows.
Conversely, suppose you disable or leave this policy setting unconfigured. In that case, any user can modify the PC’s network connections, either disconnecting from or connecting to other available networks, without the need to sign into Windows.
This policy setting empowers you to govern the accessibility of network controls on the login screen. When this policy is enabled, it mandates that any changes to the PC’s network connectivity status can only be made after signing into Windows.
In contrast, if you disable or leave this policy unconfigured, any user can freely adjust the PC’s network connections, including disconnecting from or connecting to other available networks, without the necessity of signing into Windows.
