Windows 10 is a personal computer operating system featuring the "universal application architecture" (UAP); apps can be designed to run across multiple devices with nearly identical code, including PCs, tablets, smartphones, embedded systems, Xbox One, Surface Hub and HoloLens. Windows 10 also includes a virtual desktop system, a window and desktop management feature called Task View, the Microsoft Edge web browser, support for fingerprint and face recognition login, voice-based search (Cortana), new security features for enterprise environments, and DirectX 12 and WDDM 2.0 to improve the operating system's graphics capabilities for games.

I would like to create a Virtual image/drive/disk of my current operating Windows computer, so that if there is an emergency and I can't access it,
I can run the Virtual disk on another Windows 10 computer and retrieve any files that were on the desktop etc.

A number of our users have to use GoToMeeting for attending training. When they run GoToMeeting it re installs and adds a file to their AppData folder. I have found that this folder keeps growing to the point several users had used 2 to 3 gb of space on the C drive of the server. Is there any way to prevent GoToMeeting from doing this?

I have spent weeks trying to customize the Windows 10 start menu and task bar using the LayoutModificationTemplate xml as referenced here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/configuration/configure-windows-10-taskbar#sample-taskbar-configuration-added-to-start-layout-xml-file

Everything is working except for the taskbar layout part. Here is the XML I am using. Does anyone see a problem?

<LayoutModificationTemplate

Hi there,

I am unable to create a signature in my Outlook.
When clicking on the signatures button it does not respond.
I have done some research and most people say it has to do with another installation of Office that comes with Windows 10 in the form of "MyOffice" or "Office" from the Microsoft store.

I have uninstalled both of those other options and reinstalled my Office365 Business Premium version of Office at least 3 times with no success in being able to create a signature.

Also, I started Outlook in administrator mode and was able to open the signature tab.
Once I closed Outlook and repeated those steps, it no longer was able to open the signature tab.

Attached is an image of all the buttons currently affected by this error. It is not only the signature tab being affected.

I am running a windows VM.  I have just extended the storage in my host server to the VM.
As you can see, I have over 1TB available, or that I should be able to expand my current drive, to use the unallocated space.
The problem is, why is the "extend volume" option greyed out?   I need to select Extend volume, so I can extend my volume.

I'm getting an Event 13540 error related to File Replication Service:

Event 13540

The File Replication Service cannot replicate c:\windows\sysvol\domain because the pathname of the customer designated staging directory:
    c:\windows\sysvol\staging\domain
 is not the fully qualified pathname of an existing, accessible local directory.

Does any know how I can resolve this error?

HI Experts,

I am having difficulty pushing out refreshed Group policies from Windows Server 2016 to Windows 10 clients.

They are all failing with "The remote procedure call was cancelled."

I have had some success turning off the firewall on one machine and then it successfully pushed it out, but obviously I don't want to turn off windows firewall.

I tried adding an inbound and outbound rule on the firewall on port 135 for TCP but this doesn't work.

Can anyone please help advising what firewall ports need to be open on the client PC for the group policy to get pushed out successfully.

Many thanks in advance.

In general, a listbox with a valuelist use "," if decimal point i use and ";" if decimal comma is used. Since, I generate such list the regional settings will show which one is used.

A while ago, I updated to Windows 10 1903 and both decimalcomma is used and listseparator is used. After setting listseparator to ";" it works fine again.

Anyway, since the program is expected to work with both decimalpoint as well as decimalcomma the vba code must handle this and use the proper character. I know it is an api call to get the character, but is there a smart way to handle this?

Thanks in advance.

I have a small site running all windows 10 PCs inside of a windows Domain architecture.
Everything is very very clean Domain.  The site is managed via Solar Winds which is a mature product.
 The  Domain Server being used is a 2012 R2 Server product without virtualization.

The rest of the software apps are simply Accounting and Patient Dats.  Its as I have said, a very clean environment.      
About 2 weeks ago suddenly each PC started logging off of the network, and going back to lock screen from before logging ive checked everything I can think.  The GPOs are not configured to do any sort of locking out, or logging off.

Ive been racking my head trying to discover what could be the problem.  I know that Microsoft laid out a bad update about 2 weeks ago.  I wondered if maybe this had anything to do with it.    Anyway,  all the PCs are affected, and the issue just came about starting 2 weeks ago.

Any clarity of thought would be appreciated.

But when I boot into windows 7, i can see other SSD with windows 10. So SSD is not damaged, but OS or boot is correcpted

Any suggestions on fixing boot problem please ?

Hey Experts!  Running into a rather odd issue and figured I'd ask the community of experts.

I'm using the Intelligent Provisioning > Express OS Install on a DL160 G10 server and the options available to install from is:
  • DVD Media
  • SMB/CIFS (Windows Share)
  • An anonymous FTP Server
  • Install ClearOS from internet

I don't have a DVD drive and the ClearOS isn't the OS I need.  I thought there would be a USB option but I don't see it.  Is there a way to add that option?  Is there an updated provisioning version I need?  I haven't run into this situation before and I'd like to get Windows Server 2016 on this server.

I appreciate everyone's help with this.

Hi,

I have a win10 in the office, I was off yesterday but worked remotely from home.
This morning the speaker is not working. I tried to plug in an external speaker, no luck. But BT speaker works.

When I went to the settings, everything seems normal, the "bar" is moving up and down indicating the "source" is there.

I have tried the following:
check windows update
check AV
run audio troubleshoot


any ideas? thanksAnnotation-2019-12-04-075318.gif

I cannot do this through the GUI due to the fact, that I am putting this into a script for imaging.

I have a Windows 10 laptop.

After I successfully connect to the internet at home over my wireless network, I VPN into the office server (running Windows 2016 Standard).  

After my user credentials are verified, I can navigate to a folder containing client files.

Ocassionally, after providing user credentials, I receive a "timeout" error.  

Is there any way I can increase the amount of time (for example 5 minutes), BEFORE receiving a timeout error?

Do I increase the time somewhere on my laptop, or on the Server?

Thanks for your help.

I have a WD Passport SSD with wifi and it is connected to the laptop (running Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro via Bootcamp) but I can only see the drive in Network - I cannot see it in Windows Explorer.

Now the web view displays a graphic indicating the aggregate of files by type.  Cannot see the actual files, just this graphic.

Any ideas on how to have this work like a conventional drive?
