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.

Clarify for me...

I'm using a server 2008 R2 server with routing and remote access (and remote gateway) so my remote users can use RDP to connect directly to their PCs at their desk.

I'd like to do this with a 2016 server now.

It looks like all I need is Remote Gateway.

That right?

Thanks

Cliff

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

In our company we have many conference room computers that multiple users log into at any given time. What we are seeing is that when a new user logs into a conference room computer for the first time not all settings are update. We will do a reboot or a gpupdate and then all the settings in place. Is there any script or command we could put in a GPO to have gpupdate run upon login? We would want it hidden and not impact the login experience. This is for Windows 10 computers mainly but some Windows 7 machines. Thank you.

I bought a new Lenovo Business Premium V720 laptop for our business and as standard procedure we delete the partitions and reinstall Win10 from scratch. this has always worked for us but apparently deleting the partitions was a bad thing with this particular model. after deleting the partitions and then recreating the partition Win 10 can't install on it.

Hello Experts - I've started planning for the year and one thing on my mind is the EoL for Win 7 Pro in Jan of next year.  I counted my PCs up and about half of them are still running Win7.  I'm curious to see if others are in the same boat and have a bunch of machines to get upgraded before next year and how you're planning to go about it.  Most of my machines are Dell Precision series and while I have upgraded a couple of older machines to 10, Dell doesn't always provide good drivers for that OS so the results have been mixed.  So how are you handling the EoL for Win 7?

Since when the Active Directory doesn't accept same display names?  I have the 2nd jenny jones and it doesn't want to take it.  Unless I will do something else (2nd jenny) or whatever.

I remember I was supporting university with 3000 users and it wasn't an issue.   Is it recent in 2016 AD?

im trying to connect to a print server and i get the following message. how do i fix the issue? the link is not user friendly

You can't connect to the file share because it's not secure. This share requires the obsolete SMB1 protocol, which is unsafe and could expose your system to attack.
Your system requires SMB2 or higher. For more info on resolving this issue, see: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=852747

Unable to open my properties on folders using windows 10 when I right click

I downloaded the GPO administrative template installer for WIndows 10.  It installed and I copied the files to \\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\policydefinitions. When I first did this, I saw the policies in Group Policy Mgmt Editor. A day later, I started seeing errors "An appropriate resource file could not be found for file \\<path above>\ActiveXInstallService.admx (error = 3) and then errors on all the other ADMX files pop up too until I stop the task in task mgr. The files look to be all there. Does anyone have insight into this?

I purchased a new computer without an operating system.

I downloaded Windows Server 2016 ISO.

I extracted the data from the ISO, which contain the following files:
autorun.inf
bootmgr
bootmgr.efi
setup.exe

and the following folders:
boot
efi
NanoServer
sources
support

I can copy the files/folders to a 16 GB USB flash drive.

My question is, how do I create bootable USB media so that when I power on the computer, it finds Windows Server 2016 setup.exe?

Thanks for your help.

Hardware: Dell Latitude 7490
OS: Windows 10
Office: 365 Pro Plus
Issue: The Outlook application sometimes goes white.
Setup: two external LCDs in addition to the laptop's LCD.
 Troubleshooting steps: Ran Windows Update and Office is updated.
2. Hardware acceleration is already disabled in Outlook
3. All the  device drivers are already updated, via Dell Command Update

Additional hardware; Dell WD15 docking station with the latest firmware.
2. One LCD is a 22 inch and other I believe is about 17 inch.
3. A HDMI to DVI adapter is used to connect to the 22 inch LCD and a VGA adapter is used to connect to the 17 inch LCD.

Observation: Since the problem only affects the Outlook application, it is related to video memory.

Any suggestions?

Experts,

I usually don't run across questions in windows 10 that I can't answer however this has me pretty perplexed.

When utilizing virtual desktops in windows 10, is there a way to change the Virtual Desktop Number from say Desktop 5 To Desktop 2

I usually work on multiple projects and there are times when I might have 10 Virtual Desktops open and might need more than one Virtual Desktop for a single Project.

Any suggestions on how to accomplish this? As  I haven't found anything online to support this is even possible.

All of the sudden I have lost my regular view when I open a folder in Windows 10.  I tried all the different View options and non of them worked.  My normal view has always been to show all the columns across the entire with of the folder but now I have this space on the right preventing the rest of the columns to show up.  How can I fix it.
Thanks See pic.Pic 1

I installed parallels in a MacOS and then installed Windows 10.
We run a simple ClassicASP Application on the local IIS for development purposes.  It uses a few third party plugins.

We have the exact same configuration on another computer and it works just fine there, but on this install of Windows 10 when we try to use any of the plugins I get the following error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01ad'

ActiveX component can't create object:

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

We have a few pc's with various remote connectivity issues in Windows.  One of them most perplexing is the abscense of the C$ and ADMIN$ shares (known as "admin" shares colloquially). I have tried to recreate them manually using the cmd format of "net share C$=C:\", but it only lets me recreate C$ not ADMIN$ and even C$ isn't contactable through a remote windows explorer session.  I am hoping to script this so that I can add it to my "fix all the blasted remote connectivity stuff" batch script I have started. Does anyone know of a way to fix these so that you can connect via windows explorer on a remote pc again?  

These machines are all Windows 10 x64 with Windows 1803 installed currently.  Any assistance would be so truly appreciated.  I really want to make it so we can remotely deploy software again to these poor folks. Thank you!

Hello there,I have SCCM 1702 on Windows Server 2016 and I've been encountering a strange problem. I have an automatic deployment rule set to distribute and install Windows 10 Updates to our Workstations. However, when they run each month, they force restarts of the workstations. I've had it set to suppress restarts but it unchecked that setting each month. Is there a higher setting somewhere overriding this?

I need to modify the domain password policy complexity requirements.  Symbols aren't required.   (e.g. ~!@%#$)  So users can have it but this is not a necessary requirement.
I do not see that option in group policy manager.  Is there a way to modify it somewhere?

OMG Microsoft: is it me or is this article really confusing?

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/windows-defender-atp/configure-server-endpoints-windows-defender-advanced-threat-protection

For Servers, we don't use System Center Endpoint Protection nor do we use System Center Operations Manager.

I'm really confused on their instructions for "Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2016":  Specifically, it says to "Turn on server monitoring from Windows Defender Security Center".  However, it doesn't appear that Windows Defender is installed in GUI 2012 R2.

In the link above, it says to "Turn on server monitoring from the windows defender security center portal" which I don't seem to have.

Is this whole confusing article really meant to suggest I "install and configure Microsoft Monitoring Agent (MMA) to report sensor data to Windows Defender ATP", even though I'm not using those other two products?

Thanks in advance if you can point me in the right direction,
Mike
