    W8 Tablets locked down with current Student GPO

    We have a small amount of W8 tablets (Acer Iconia W7's) for our SEN department and they have been successfully connected to the domain and appropriate programs added.

    When staff login to the tablets they can access programs fine, however when students login all they get is the metro screen with nothing accessible.

    The metro screen is completely blank, and any kind of search results in nothing. All they can basically do is logout.

    I'm sure it's something very basic within the policy settings, but unfortunately my server knowledge in general is lacking and I have so far been unable to resolve this.

    Can anyone please help?

    Thanks in advance,

    Matt
