A desktop computer is a personal computer designed for use at a single location due to its size and power requirements, usually by one person. The most common configuration has a case that houses the power supply, motherboard, disk storage (usually one or more hard disk drives and optical disc drives); a keyboard and mouse for input; and computer monitor and printer for output. The case may be oriented horizontally and placed atop a desk or vertically and placed underneath or beside a desk.

I have a 2012 R2 server setup for desktop access for thin clients. have Setup a Group policy that hides drives A through D. When a user logs in they have  access to network drives configured for them but they can also see the E drive of the RDS server . I need to also hide the E drive. Is there a Custom ADMX that can be used to hide this drive. I do not want to attempt to edit the current ADMX

I have the Verizon Cloud desktop app (for PC) installed but Verizon support said it only syncs one-way: from PC to Cloud. Anyone know of any 3rd party method to sync Verizon Cloud content back to my PC?
Thank you,

So a medical office that I do work for has about "25 boxes" of records they'd like to save on their desktops and otherwise shred and get rid of.  Is there hardware that you can recommend that can take care of this?


Thanks!

All,

I was wondering how one goes about setting up Desktop folder redirection using GP. We have it set up for My Docs, Pictures, Videos and Music, but would also like to set it up for Desktop, Favorites and Downloads.

When I go into the settings for Desktop Folder Redirection properties I set the setting to Basic - Redirect everyone's folder to the same location. Under Target Folder Location - I select Create a folder for each user under the root path.

The root path when I put in the location - its saying its invalid....have tried the following...
%homeshare%%homepath%/Desktop
\\SERVER\SHARE$\%username%\DESKTOP
%homepath%\desktop
\\server\%username%$\Desktop)
\\server\home_share$\%username%\Desktop

Can anyone see what I am doing wrong.

We are using Server 2012r2 and the client machines are Windows 7.

Before anyone says YES the folder redirection DOES work - its just Desktop, Favorites and Downloads that don't.

Hi!!

I'm implementing a new RDS deployment bihind a NGINX, I already made the RDWeb works, but I am having troubles with the gateway,
I am always getting this issue:

I made a test forwarding the traffic from the firewall  directly to the gateway and it works perfectly. Here is it the configuration of the NGINX.



    server {
        listen      80;
        server_name  ##.#####.##;
        return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
       root         /usr/share/nginx/html;

        location / {
        }

        error_page 404 /404.html;
            location = /40x.html {
        }

        error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
            location = /50x.html {
        }
    }

upstream gateway.####.## {
    server gateway.###.##:443;
   }

     server {
        listen  443 ssl;
        server_name  gateway.##.##;

        ssl_certificate "/etc/letsencrypt/live/##.####.##/fullchain.pem";
        ssl_certificate_key "/etc/letsencrypt/live/##.###.##/privkey.pem";

I have a computer that cannot effectively search for files.  This is a DELL optiplex 790, running windows 7 pro.  I have been able to resolve the issue, temporarily, by 'modifying' the 'indexing options'.  I have included her documents, and her desktop, in the 'indexing options', from the 'modifly' option, which is where the files reside.  This works for a while, but within a week it defaults back.  When it defaults back we lose the indexing of her desktop and documents files.  Does anyone know why this keeps happening, or how to fix it?

Hi,
I have a client that has asked me to migrate all her files and data from an old desktop computer to a new one. Her old Outlook data, for some reason,is in OST format. I have asked her if the computer used to be in an office environment connected to a server and she said no but who knows.
Anyway I was wondering if anybody knows of a free program to convert ost to pst. I need pst for her new Outlook on her new computer.
Thanks

A better idea. Yep. I have a customer that has several 4-5 year old Lenovo desktop computers. Their function keys don't work. How annoying. The keyboards are odd. Is there an addition key they need to press to invoke the function keys?

Hi

I'm designing my new epic blog. ( more specific than my other Q)

It seems that for the template I've chosen in wordpress, the screen allotment on phone for my banner is much too thin for any meaningful political banner image to be absorbed easily.
(Theme . . . . twenty seventeen) but it is fine on desktop

I'm thinking I should be most concerned with how it looks on desktop, knowing that people won't see it mainly on PDA?

If I have political personalities' faces aligned in my banner, they can be discerned, obviously on desktop, but also, slightly on phone..

People only look at blogs on their phone for quick activity?

What is most effective to look top notch?

Thanks

Have a PC that did not start and beeped 6 times (HP) so I removed the graphic card. I tried a different card but gave the same result (6 beeps).

I ran HP system diagnostic everything passed.

I get an error when trying to run windows update (code 80072F8F)

In device manager everything seem to up to date (no yellow flag)

I want to update this PC which is currently running window 8 to windows 10.

Can I do the install as is, or first get to the bottom of the issue?

Sometimes I am emailed audio and video files.  To listen to them, I have to download them to my desktop then open them up in Windows Media Player.  In the past, the files used to just play through the gmail client.  What apps should I try to use that are being suggested to me?

Basically, I don't want to have to download the files to my desktop anymore because they're already in my email, you know?

They are .wav files if that makes a difference.

Hi, I've been having an issue after the latest update on Windows 10 Pro, when I remote desktop to another Windows 10 pro PC it brings me to the login screen instead of automatically logging in as it used to.
I do use an RDP wrapper which allows more than one user to log on and this works again now after updating.  But I don't know why it won't automatically logon to the pc.

Please can anybody shed a light?

TIA

Windows 7  32-bit (needed to run specialized equipment) will not install on a Lenovo S500 desktop PC.

The install (via DVD) gets as far as the language selection page but then just freezes...the mouse cannot move. No language
can be selected.

Here is what I tried:

- A different Windows 7 DVD - same problem
- A different mouse - same problem
- A different DVD disk (USB variety) same problem
- Checked for overheating - CPU heatsink is almost frosty!

Hoping someone here can help or shed some light on this issue?

Dear Experts,

I recently installed Linux 17.04 on my DELL desktop.

Before I always able to create, increase or modify the swap file with Gparted.

I m not able to do that now. I wonder if I messed up during the installation.

Should I try to do it with the command line? I found some ideas online not sure which way to go.

The PC has 4 Gigs of physical RAM. i wonder what the swap file should go up to?

Thanks!

Have a website setup under IIS 8.5.  I only have Windows Authentication enabled so this works good for login prompt to access the webpage.
But  what I was envisioning was when a user accessed the webpage ( from their desktop that is logged into the domain) they would not be prompted to login.  But from external access they would be prompted to login.
I have a security certificate setup as well for external access too that I can configure.

I think I was hoping I could configure this easily/quickly with IIS authentication rules but possibly not, so any ideas would be appreciated!  TIA!!

I have a user name and password to enter. After I enter the password there is a rotating sphere. Today the sphere rotated 13 times before the desktop appeared. Others days it can take 30-35 even 40 and each rotation is roughly one second. Why the wide variance?

Hi All,
I have received great help to get this far with saving a copy of an xlsm sheet to my desktop. I need for all users to save to their own desktop. The sheet is part of an ordering workbook. This is what I have so far, but it just saves to my desktop.
Sub SaveToDesktop()
Dim ThisFile As String
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    ActiveSheet.Copy
    ThisFile = Range("E12").Value & "(" & Range("L12").Value & ")"
    ActiveSheet.SaveAs Filename:="C:\Users\stevesmith\Desktop\" & ThisFile, FileFormat:=52
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    ActiveWorkbook.Close
End Sub

Open in new window
