What utilities or methods exist for me to edit, remove, or modify which items appear within the Windows 10 Explorer right-click context menu?

This right-click context menu on my computers is very long (see the screenshot) and I would like to be able to change what it contains.

How can this be done?

Is Driver Genius a better driver updater program than Driver Booster?

I updated the drivers on around 20 Windows 10 computers using Driver Booster and then came back and ran Driver Genius.

On every computer Driver Genius updated almost every driver that had already been updated by Driver Booster.

Does this mean that Driver Genius downloads and installs better or more recent drivers than Driver Booster?

A couple months ago my organization used the free version of the Forensit "User Profile Wizard 3.12" utility to convert local Windows 10 login accounts to Active Directory domain login accounts on 16 Windows 10 computers.

Now the users login using their domain usernames and passwords but still use their existing Windows local user accounts profiles that existed before this migration was done.

We have noticed that the User Profile Wizard utility apparently still continues to run within Windows Task Manager and that the folders it created during installation also still remain.

Will there be any harm if we remove the Forensit "User Profile Wizard" installation folders and prevent it from running within the Task Manager on these computers where this utility was used several months ago or will this cause any types of problems or issues?

Attached is the Forensit User Profile Wizard 3.12 Corporate Edition user guide.

I am trying to install Abacus on to a new workstation.  It is currently running on another computer as a standalone.  
I was able to share the folder and lowered the UAC on the computer running Abacus.

Error: You cannot use UNC paths to install Abacus.  Please Run Station.exe from a mapped drive or change the Destination directory.

Do I map the drive on the new workstation or map the drive on the computer running Abacus?

Computer running Abacus: \\computername-9\Abacus\

See image for error:

Within my Server 2016 Active Directory domain how can I generate a current report of which domain users are logged into which computers?

I would like to generate a GUI, web-based, or command line report with this information.

If this can't be done natively within Server 2016 then what third-party utilities or programs can be used to do this?

What are some good advanced Windows 10 clipboard utilities?

For example Office 2000 used to have a clipboard function that allowed for 24 items to be placed into the clipboard and then re pasted back in the same order they were copied into the clipboard.

I'm looking for advanced Windows clipboard utilities and programs that extend the power and functionality of the Windows clipboard.

What are some good programs or utilities that will do this?

Some Windows 10 Professional computers I have encountered have had Shadow copy configured so that previous versions of files contained within file shares can be restored from set intervals (from 7 AM and 5 PM snapshots collected over previous days). This has been setup the same way that Windows servers have Shadow copy set up. On these Windows 10 computers I have been able to open the previous versions tab within Windows Explorer in the folders containing the file shares and have been able to browse and view previous versions of the files.

I need to have the shadow copies stored on the local hard drive and not on any secondary or network drives.

What is the process for setting  up Shadow copy within Windows 10 the same way that it is setup on Windows servers?

I'm looking for a quick and easy way of exporting and importing Windows environment variables.

I have a user who creates a lot of custom Windows environment variables that do things such as launch custom Windows Explorer paths, open different programs, and do other things.

These variables are defined with letters such as u that has a value of C:\Users so that when the user types in %u% within a Windows Explorer browser window or within the run dialog box Windows Explorer will open in the C:\Users folder.

The user also has several programs that will launch if other variables such as %z% or %r% are typed in.

We would like to be able to export these custom Windows Explorer environment variables so that they can be exported into another Windows operating system.

How can this be done?

I had this question after viewing how to replace a domain controller and keep the computer name and IP the same.

From that question's accepted solution:

Here is a step by step.
http://blog.zwiegnet.com/windows-server/migrate-server-2003-to-2008r2-active-directory-and-fsmo-roles/

I would create the DC as another name then once you have removed the old DC from the Forest or demoted to a member server you can then do the rename and re-ip.


Since you indicate this is a software requirement, you should indicate there will be a minimal amount on downtime with the rehome and rename but that should be pretty straightforward since it is a single DC environment.

Rename DC

Is there a step by step guide since that initial link is not working now?

Installing SQL 2017 we were asked to "Accept" on "Microsoft R Open".  We looked it up some sort of open source, but What is it to us Microsoft product users?, also  Why click "Accept" it in this SQL install? and How can we take advantage of this "Microsoft R Open"?

I have a unique situation and nobody in our team have seen it before. Please feel free to ask if you need clarification.
I have a windows2003 AD and WinXP as clients-
I want to create a separate OU for Win7 clients and be able to push GP for Win7 instead of the default domain policy meant for XP.  The current GP is for XP and that will not support Win7 clients.
Questions- How do I create a separate GP for Win7 machines and apply but still keep XP group policy?
My security officer must generate a report (SCAP) and it must have Win7 GP applied in order to determine the baseline.
