HP Easy Shell, 1 the latest software addition, allows businesses to completely customize and simplify their cloud computing experience with Windows Embedded with an intuitive interface and targeted protection tools. HP mt245 comes preinstalled with HP Easy Shell v3.1 – featuring new system notifications and displays that simplify IT trouble-shooting and the user experience.
