Windows 10 device appears as Mobile Device when enrolled via Mobile Device Management

Here’s a quick tip for you on enrolling Windows computers in Microsoft Intune. When you enroll a Windows 10-based device using Mobile Device Management, remember that the device gets enrolled as a mobile device and does not appear as a "Computer" device type in Microsoft Intune as you might expect. Instead, the device appears under "Mobile Devices." This is by design. To enroll a Windows 10 device and have it display as a computer in Microsoft Intune, the Microsoft Intune client software must be installed. For more details please see the following:
