How to Turn On or Off Hyper-V Enhanced Session Mode in Windows 10

Hyper-V enables running virtualized computer systems on top of a physical host. These virtualized systems (aka: guests) can be used and managed just as if they were physical computer systems, however they exist in a virtualized and isolated environment.

You can give a virtual machine access to a computer’s local resources, like a removable USB flash drive, when you use Virtual Connection Manager (VMConnect). To make this happen, turn on enhanced session mode on the Hyper-V host, use VMConnect to connect to the virtual machine, and before you connect, choose the local resource that you want to use.

Enhanced session mode provides the following new capabilities for Virtual Machine Connection sessions:

•Display Configuration
•Audio redirection
•Printer redirection
•Full clipboard support (improved over limited prior-generation clipboard support)
•Smart Card support
•USB Device redirection
•Drive redirection
•Redirection for supported Plug and Play devices

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Hyper-V enhanced session mode for your account and/or all accounts in Windows 10.
