Hi all,

Is there any unique registry or other method that I can classify this is surface pro using Windows 10 Pro/Home and Notebook/Desktop using the same OS?

Thanks!!

The Computer Name / NetBIOS friendly name, but.....
You may have to get creative as I believe it only supports 15 characters
So a Surface Pro 4 Tablet, running Windows 10 Pro, might look something like this
SP4_W10Pro_Tab (or DT for DeskTop or LT for LapTop instead of Tab for Tablet).
OR
You might consider a desktop overlay like this

It's pretty customizeable depending on what you want to do.
Your post is not exactly clear as to what you are attempting to accomplish.

Thanks for your reply.
I need to restrict the VPN access from the user using windows 10 tablet device(surface pro) but allow the others.
The device is not owned by company. Therefore, I cannot control the Computer name or tell them to change.
Is there any unique key in registry that I can classify them?
