All settings and configuration sets can be saved as so called "profiles" which can then be applied on any other Windows PC with a single click. In addition to that you can select to which Windows user account the profile shall be applied to.

The FrontFace Lockdown Tool also comes with shortcuts to shut down and to reboot a PC so that you can execute these commands even if you have previously disabled them in the regular Windows user interface.
