+description: Learn how to buy Windows 365 Business for your organization, and help users start using their Cloud PCs.
++
+# Get started with Windows 365 Business and Cloud PCs
+
+This article is for people who plan to buy and set up Windows 365 Business for their organization.
+
+[Windows 365 Business](https://www.microsoft.com/windows-365/business) is a version of Windows 365 that is made specifically for use in smaller companies (up to 300 seats). It gives organizations an easy, streamlined way of providing Cloud PCs to their users. With Windows 365 Cloud PCs, you can stream your apps, data, content, settings, and storage from the Microsoft cloud.
+++
+## Prerequisites
+There are no prerequisites to set up Windows 365 Business.
++
+## Buy subscriptions
+
+There are two different ways in which you can buy Windows 365 Business subscriptions for your users:
+- The [Windows 365 products site](https://www.microsoft.com/windows-365/business/compare-plans-pricing)
+- Microsoft 365 admin center
+
+After you buy a subscription, you can use the Microsoft 365 admin center to assign licenses to users in your organization.
++
+### Buy subscriptions through the Windows 365 products site
+
+If you don't already have a Microsoft 365 subscription, you can buy your Windows 365 Business subscriptions on the [Windows 365 products site](https://www.microsoft.com/windows-365/business/compare-plans-pricing). Use the following steps to buy a Windows 365 Business subscription through the Windows 365 products page.
++
+1. On the [Windows 365 Business](https://www.microsoft.com/windows-365/business) page, select **See plans and pricing**.
+2. On the next page, select the subscription you want to purchase, and then select **Buy now**.
+3. On the **Thank you for choosing Windows 365 Business** page, follow the steps to set up your account.
+4. In **step 5 - Confirmation details**, if you are ready to assign licenses to users, select **Get started** to go to your Windows 365 home page at https://windows365.microsoft.com.
+5. On the Windows 365 home page, in the **Quick actions** section, select **Manage your organization**. This takes you to the Microsoft 365 admin center where you can [assign licenses to users](/microsoft-365/business-video/set-up-cloud-pc-for-business#Assign-licenses-to-users).
+++
+### Buy a subscription through the Microsoft admin center
+
+If you already have a Microsoft 365 tenant and are a Global or Billing admin, you can use the Microsoft 365 admin center to buy a Windows 365 Business subscription for your organization.
+
+1. In the Microsoft admin center, go to the **Billing > Purchase services** page.
+2. On the **Purchase services** page, search for **Windows 365 Business**. When you find it, select **Details**.
+3. On the **Windows 365 Business** page, in the **Processor/Ram/Storage Options** section, use the **Select a subscription** menu to select a subscription for your users based on their CPU, RAM, and storage needs. See [Windows 365 Business sizing options](windows-365-business-sizing.md) for guidance on selecting the subscription that best fits your users' needs.
+4. On the **Checkout** page, enter the number of subscriptions you want to buy, as well and your payment information. Then select **Place Order**.
+5. The **You're all set!** page appears confirming your purchase.
++
+## Assign licenses to users
+
+Whether you purchased your subscriptions through the Windows 365 products site, or through the Microsoft 365 admin center, you can [assign licenses to users](/microsoft-365/admin/manage/assign-licenses-to-users) through the **Billing** page in the Microsoft 365 admin center.
+
+You can assign different Windows 365 Business license types to a user, based on the users business need. See [Windows 365 Business sizing options](windows-365-business-sizing.md) for guidance on which license type might be suitable for your users.
++
+## Get your users started with Cloud PC
+
+After licenses are assigned, let your users know that there are two different ways in which they can access their Cloud PCs:
+
+- Via the Windows 365 home page (https://windows365.microsoft.com)
+- By using a Microsoft Remote Desktop client
+
+### Windows 365 home page
+
+Users can navigate to **https://windows365.microsoft.com** to access their Cloud PCs.
+
+On their Windows 365 home page, users see the Cloud PCs they have access to in the **Your Cloud PCs** section.
+
+![Windows 365 home](../../media/deschutes/cloudpc-home.png)
+
+Users can select **Open in browser** to open their Cloud PC.
+
+> [!NOTE]
+> Mobile devices arenΓÇÖt currently supported.
+
+#### User actions
+
+While on the Windows 365 home page, users can perform actions on their Cloud PCs by selecting the gear icon on a Cloud PC card.
+
+![Card menu](../../media/deschutes/cloudpc-gear.png)
+
+- **Restart**: Restarts the Cloud PC.
+
+- **Rename**: Changes the name of the Cloud PC shown to the user on Microsoft 365.com.
+
+- **Reset**: Reset does the following:
+
+ - Reinstalls Windows 10.
+ - Removes your personal files.
+ - Removes any changes you made to settings.
+ - Removes your apps.
+
+ > [!IMPORTANT]
+ > Before resetting your Cloud PC, make sure to back up any important files you need to keep to a cloud storage service or external storage. Resetting your Cloud PC will delete these files.
+
+- **Troubleshoot**: Troubleshoot and attempt to fix any issues that may be keeping a user from connecting to their Cloud PC. The following table describes the statuses that can result from the checks.
+
+ | Status | Description |
+ |:--|:--|
+ |No issues detected |None of the checks ran discovered an issue with the Cloud PC. |
+ |Issues resolved |An issue was detected and fixed. |
+ |CanΓÇÖt connect to Cloud PC. WeΓÇÖre working to fix it, try again later. |A Microsoft service required for connectivity is unavailable. Try connecting again later. |
+ |We couldnΓÇÖt fix issues with your Cloud PC. Contact your administrator. |An issue was detected but it was unable to be fixed. This could be due to an ongoing Windows update or another issue. If this error persists for an extended period of time the Cloud PC may need to be reset. |
++++
+### Remote Desktop
+
+The Microsoft Remote Desktop app lets users access and control a remote PC, including a Cloud PC. Windows 365 users can download and install the Remote Desktop client they need from the Windows 365 home page.
+
+#### Install the Microsoft Remote Desktop app
+
+To set up their Remote Desktop client, users follow these steps:
+
+1. On the **Windows 365 home page**, select the **Microsoft Remote Desktop apps** icon (under the home icon).
+2. On the **Microsoft Remote Desktop apps** page, download and install the Remote Desktop app you need.
+
+ ![Remote desktop clients](../../media/deschutes/remote-desktop-apps.png)
+
+For a list of clients by operating system, seeΓÇ»[Remote Desktop clients](/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/remote-desktop-clients).
++
+## Installing apps
+
+Users can install apps on their Cloud PC as they would normally in Windows by either downloading them from the applicationΓÇÖs website or by downloading them from the Microsoft Store.
+
+All Windows 365 Business users have local administrator privileges on their Cloud PC, so they should have the permissions required to install apps to their workspaces.
++
+ ## Management through Intune
+
+Windows 365 Business does not enroll Cloud PCs to [Intune](/mem/intune/fundamentals/what-is-intune) as part of the provisioning process. If the organization and users are properly licensed, Cloud PCs can be enrolled to Intune using the same procedure for [enrolling Windows 10 machines to Intune](/mem/intune/user-help/enroll-windows-10-device).
+
+## How to get help
+
+If you need to get help while setting up Windows 365 Business in the Microsoft 365 admin center, see [Get help or support](/microsoft-365/business-video/get-help-support).

+# Windows 365 Business sizing options
+
+Windows 365 Business offers fixed-price licensing (through Microsoft 365) for different Cloud PC sizes. When you assign a license to a user, you need to select one of several size options.
