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.

When I click the up-arrow a number of running programs become visible. See the picture below. However
the task bar is hiding the bottom three icons. The task bar is not locked. How can I make it so that all of those
icons including the lowest row are visible?

My computer started to give me blue screens for the first time yesterday, 3 times actually.  Today, same thing, I was able to get into windows, but it crashed 2 or 3 times, so I did a full restore from my backups about 4 hours ago, and so far so good, it has not crashed yet, BUT, my problem now is, besides my OS drive (SSD), I had 2 more drives in my PC, another 2.5" SSD and a 6TB drive, both already formatted.  
The bios sees both drives, but when I boot to windows, none show up.
I checked the device manager, nothing there, I checked disk management, they are not there.  I clicked on scan for new hardware in device manager, nothing shows up.
I found online to run the windows memory diagnostic tool, did that, restarted, and still didn't' show up.   I'm a bit puzzled.

Any other thoughts why the drives show up in bios, but not in windows, running the latest version of windows 10.

I am running Windows 10, and using Outlook to send emails through my Gmail account.   Most of the time everything works fine, but one of my frequent contacts (also a Gmail account) doesn't get my attachments or graphics inserted into the body of the email.  When I send an attachment, she just gets an attachment named winmail.dat.   Is there something I can do to fix this?

Thanks,

Phil

In Windows 10, I want to run a CMD file that runs an exe several times. Unfortunately, the exe requires UAC approval. Fine if I'm sitting there, but since this CMD file will be a scheduled task that will run overnight, the UAC interruption is unacceptable.

I've read numerous suggestions online that offer ways to "fix" this problem, but none of them work. For example, modifying the Properties of the exe, or the shortcut that points to that exe, to "run as administrator".

I need to find a way to permanently enable this particular exe to run without invoking UAC control.

An end user has a Dell laptop that she spilled coffee on.  Sent to to Dell who replaced the motherboard, keyboard, and hard drive.  Before the accident the system was running  fine and as far as I know, BitLocker was NOT enabled.  Dell stated that they replaced the hard drive as the new motherboard did not recognize the old drive.  I can attach the drive to another system and BIOS see the drive, but it is not accessible as BitLocker shows it locked.  

I reinstalled the old drive back into the laptop and upon boot, I get the BitLocker recovery screen which states to go to https://go.micrsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=xxxxxx from another  computer.  It also provide a Recovery Key ID.  When I go to that URL, I am prompted to login with my MS account, which I do.  There is no other navigation for the recovery key.

I do not know what account was used for the registration of BitLocker so I do not know what account should be used for the recovery key.  The previous MSP is out of business so calling them is not an option, the end user... well, let's just say she is not versed in this area and does not know anything.

I am following this article:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12415/windows-10-recovery-options  and get to step 9, but do not see an option for reset this PC.

What I am looking for is a way to reset the BitLocker and unlock the drive so I do not have to reinstall all the apps and recover her data.

Is this even possible?

When someone calls me on SKYPE, they just appear. There's no ring and I don't have to click on anything to see them. This is annoying.  I don't want people to just appear when they call me on skype.  If it's a setting I haven't been able to find it to turn it off.  I'm running Skype 8.42.0.60, on a Dell optiplex 7040 desktop running Windows 10 Pro at the latest level.
Thanks,

I am running Windows 10.  I am not an audiophile, but I need to combine and do minor editing with a variety of audio clips.   I don't mind paying for a program that will let me import a few audible files and put them end-to-end and then save it as a new file.  What is the best bet?

Thanks,

Is it possible to purchase 3 copies of Windows 10 Pro Upgrade Keys without using the MS online store from a workstation?  My boss doesnt want his CC number anyone related to the account or the machine and I need 3 upgrade licenses.   Is there a phone number I can just call and order 3?

Hi,

I need to remove the end users from the local administrators group on all workstations. For a select group of users, they would need to remain as local admins on their machine. I currently have 1 OU that holds all workstations.  

I see that there are two ways of removing users from admin group. Either using restricted groups gpo or group policy preferences. I dont see much of a difference between the two approaches. In either case it would seem that I would have to create two separate OU's , one for computers that dont have end users in local admin group and the other would have computers not linked to any gpo of this type.  Is this correct? What would be the best approach to this?

Thank you.

I need to setup MFA for Office365.   The issue I am running into is that we have a department where they are discouraged from having personal phones at their desk during the day, they use a shared extension so calls ring on everyone's phone and some of them move between a few different locations.   Because of this I don't want to use SMS or call back options.   It also means I can not install apps on a cell phone for authentication.  

Has anyone setup on the local computers a software token system to connect to Office365?

When trying to get Bitlocker key saved to the Azure AD, I sometimes get this:

Can't sign in to your Microsoft Account
You need to be signed in to Windows with a Microsoft
account to save your recovery key. Sign out and then
sign in with a Microsoft account or go to
Settings and choose Accounts to change your
existing account.

This doesn't make sense to me. The user is signed in to his "Work or School" account which appears to register him with not only the Microsoft 365 apps etc. but also registers him and the laptop on the Azure Active Directory for the organisation. Under "Devices" in the AD his device appears with correct name.

It's only when attempting to save the BL key to the AD that we have this issue.

Is there perhaps another way to get the user signed in to the domain account but without having to tell Windows that the laptop is an organisation's laptop?

Confused of Berkshire!

Hello,

There was a message on my Windows 10 computer asking something like do you want Microsoft/Office 365 to manage this device and I clicked yes.

Since then, every email I receive in my Outlook I see two popups at my lower right.  Please see the attached.  

The one in the screenshot is new.  Please advise how to turn it off.

Thanks.

SSL certificate setupHi,
 I am setting up Anywhere Access in Windows Server 2016 Essentials. As you can see in the screenshot, I need to enter SSL Certificate for "remote.domain_name.com".
 I have a few questions for this:
 (1) Can I have W2016 Essentials server to create a certificate like I was able to do in SBS2011?
 (2) If option (1) is not possible, where can I buy one cheap? (I know there is a free one out there, but I like to get one)
 (3) Since I am testing "Anywhere Access" on this test server/lab environment, I like to be able to re-assign SSL certificate (that I am going to buy) in production server in a week.
       Can I use SSL Certificate on this test server and use it in production server later?

Thanks for your help.

Error Code: INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND. When accessing the internet with Chrome, it works without any problems and you can access any website. I have reset network settings and also flushed the dns and cleared everything in the browsers. Nothing made a difference. Any idea what is causing this?

Hi Everyone my company has tasked me with drawing up a I guess we can call it a project to present to our clients with transitioning them off Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 pro.   This is for a sales standpoint to present a SOW on the best way to transition all workstations/ laptops to the Windows 10 environment including all of their applications.   Has anyone ever written something up like this and would be willing to give me a hand in doing so?  I would greatly appreciate it.   This group has been awesome.  Please feel free if you need any more information from me I would be happy to work with whomever.  I have never had to write up a solution in the past for this so this is very new to me.  Thank you greatly in advance.
