You can configure the server running Hyper-V by modifying Hyper-V settings. You can use these settings to specify where certain files are stored by default and control interactions such as keyboard combinations and logon credentials.
There are two categories of Hyper-V settings:
- Server settings, which specify the default
location of virtual hard disks and virtual machines.
- User settings, which enable you to customize
interactions with Virtual Machine Connection, and display messages
and wizard pages if you hid them previously. Settings for Virtual
Machine Connection include the mouse release key and Windows key
|To configure Hyper-V settings|
Open Hyper-V Manager. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Hyper-V Manager.
In the Actions pane, click Hyper-V Settings.
In the navigation pane, click the setting that you want to configure.
Click OK to save the changes and close Hyper-V Settings, or click Apply to save the changes and configure other settings.
- By default, membership in the local
Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required

Authorization Manager to modify the authorization policy so that a
user or group of users can complete this procedure. For more
