Windows 10 Release Information
Microsoft has updated its servicing model. The Semi-Annual Channel is a twice-per-year feature update release targeting March and September, and 18-month servicing timelines for each release. The Semi-Annual Channel replaces the Current Branch (CB) and Current Branch for Business (CBB) concepts starting July 2017 with Windows 10, version 1703. This page is designed to help you determine if your devices are up to date with the latest Windows 10 feature and quality updates and to plan deployment schedules.
With each Semi-Annual Channel release, we recommend beginning deployment right away to targeted devices and ramp up to full deployment at your discretion. This will enable you to gain access to new features, experiences, and integrated security as soon as possible. For more information, see the blog post and Quick guide to Windows as a service.
Windows 10, 8, 7, and Vista all support symbolic links, also known as symlinks, that point to a file or folder on your system.
Symbolic links are basically advanced shortcuts. Create a symbolic link to an individual file or folder, and that link will appear to be the same as the file or folder to Windows—even though it’s just a link pointing at the file or folder.
For example, let’s say you have a program that needs its files at C:\Program. You’d really like to store this directory at D:\Stuff, but the program requires that its files be at C:\Program. You could move the original directory from C:\Program to D:\Stuff, and then create a symbolic link at C:\Program pointing to D:\Stuff. When you relaunch the program, it will try to access its directory at C:\Program. Windows will automatically redirect it to D:\Stuff, and everything will just work as if it were in C:\Program.
Why the Performance Monitor?
When it comes to the subject of disk performance in Windows, the majority of questions can be quickly answered by Performance Monitor alone. Performance Monitor is very low overhead, does a great job with averages and can also capture and store data over long periods of time. It is an excellent choice to record a performance baseline and to troubleshoot.
For short in this text, we are going to call the Windows Performance Monitor by its nickname: Perfmon. The nickname comes from its executable file located at %systemroot%system32Perfmon.exe.
There is no available field to filter the Windows Event VIewer Security Logs for users logging in with RDP (logon type 10). Use the XML table and check the box ‘Edit query manually’. Copy/paste the XML code to find all users who have logged in by remote desktop:
OpenSSL is used for many things other than running encryption on a website. It is also used for the generation of CSR keypairs, and more importantly within this article converting.
The Italic parts in the conversions below are examples of you own files, or your own unique naming conventions adapt these Italic name examples to your own files names for openssl commands.
Note: .pem, .cer, crt. are all the same type of x509/pem certificate only with different extensions.
