  3. Under Display, configure the following settings:
    1. To show the full disk encryption icon in the Windows notification area on endpoint computers for quick and easy access to all user functions, select Icon in Windows notification area.
    2. To show the encryption icon in Windows Explorer on endpoint computers for encrypted drives, select Encryption status in Windows Explorer.
    3. To display your chosen text before the user logs on at the Power-on Authentication, select Legal notice when the computer starts.
