Despite surveys and reports that Windows 10 Version 1803 is terrible or awful, I say that 1803 is not half bad. MS goes so far as to claim its users report “higher satisfaction numbers, fewer known issues and lower support call volumes.”
Last week I wrote about the importance of us IT pros dealing with Windows to join Windows Insider Program for Business. A few days ago, Ed wrote about Windows AutoPilot and where it’s going, mentioning two new cool features in AutoPilot. Both of these new interesting new features are currently only available as previews for
Microsoft Teams is one step closer to completely replacing Skype for Business with all SfB call and meeting features already added to it.

For the DISM /Cleanup-Image command, the difference between Scanhealth and Checkhealth is one of depth and nature of coverage. Checkhealth simply looks for already-reported errors for component store items, while Scanhealth inspects each one in detail.
MS VP Brad Anderson dropped a blog post yesterday, June 7, 2018. It’s entitled “Simplifying IT with the latest updates from Windows Autopilot.” It explains that Microsoft’s goal “is to simplify deployment of new Windows 10 devices by eliminating the cost and complexity associated with creating, maintaining and loading custom images.” Simply put, the Autopilot

This makes it important that IT admins and staff stay up to date on the development and evolution of Windows versions. It is
Two videos about dual boot and how to install / deploy Windows 10 fast and easy as secondary OS on dual boot. The first video is already somewhat old but still totally valid, showing how to install Windows 10 on dual boot on a native boot virtual hard disk: Next one I made today. It
Saw a fascinating story in ComputerWorld a couple of days ago. Entitled “Gartner: Enterprises should demand 2 full years of Windows 10 support,” it explains why MS needs to extend the current 18-month lifespan for Feature Updates to 24 months instead. Let me lay out the logic involved. We’re now on a twice-a-year feature upgrade
Today we will start a new section here at Win10.guru. In the past, I have made some heavily TenForums.com branded videos and posted them to my YouTube channel (https://youtube.com/KariTheFinn). I joined SevenForums.com, the sister site of TenForums.com, 10 years ago. Since then, I have regarded these forums as my virtual home. I am to the
Hi geeks! Here’s a series of videos I’ve made for TenForums.com about Windows Server to get you started with Server editions of Windows. It might be that you already know Windows Server quite well, but I would not be surprised if you found something new in these videos anyway. My apologies if the neutral background
Windows 10 digital licensing was first introduced as Digital Entitlement in November 2015 in Windows 10 version 1511, first Windows 10 feature update. It was renamed as Digital License in Anniversary Update version 1607, which also brought the option to link the license with a Microsoft Account (MSA). What digital license means is that when a Windows 10 device has been activated, it remains activated for the life time of said device.
As you all know already, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation came into force on Friday, the 25th of May, 2018. Not surprisingly, this has caused a global panic-like wave not very different from what we experienced at the end of the 1990s with the feared “Millenium Bug” (aka Y2K). As a consumer and
As of today, May 25th 2018, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation or short GDPR is fully in force (read more). What this means, briefly, is that your privacy is protected better than ever before. Here at Win10.Guru, we had to make numerous changes to comply with GDPR. First, we had to remove our
We have used Email Signatures for Office 365 from CodeTwo (https://www.codetwo.com/) for two months now. CodeTwo is a Microsoft Gold Partner that specializes in tools for O365 / Exchange email. Email Signatures for Office 365 is an Azure-based tool. It permits tenant admins to create, edit and manage email signatures centrally for the entire tenant. An
When Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17672 showed up yesterday morning, I thought I was in for an easy ride. With three horses in that race, only one finished in a reasonable amount of time. Here’s the story…
With the GDPR ready to take effect on May 25, 2018, Win10.Guru is ready with a reworked subscription system and full disclosure of information retained about its visitors and subcribers.
