With the newest update, windows has hidden the option “search online and include web results” and therefore has made it difficult for users to disable Cortana and Web results completely.
Luckily for us there is a relatively easy fix.
To celebrate one year of the Windows 10 insider program, Microsoft sent out this email to its insiders with exclusive Ninja Cat Windows 10 wallpapers as well as a Ninja Cat GIF.
The wallpaper zip below contains multiple files in various sizes for both phones and PC’s alike.
You can download the official files using the links below:
This one is simple. For random freezes, Flash Player crashes etc… 90% of the time, they can be resolved by downloading the 64 bit version of chrome… Most likely you have the 32bit version (the default).
Go to the site again, download the x64 and voilia. No more crashes
As you may have noticed, there is no easy way to change the netmask of a scope. The only way is to delete and recreate it.
If you have a network anywhere near as complex as the one I’m dealing with right now, you KNOW manual insertion is not even remotely an option. Luckily there is an easy way…. command prompt 🙂
Step 1. open up cmd as administrator and export your scope
The command is:
C:>netsh dhcp server \dhcp_server_name scope my_scope dump>c:dhcp.txt
eg. C:>netsh dhcp server \dc1 scope 192.168.1.1 dump>c:dhcp.txt
Step 2. Open that document and find the line saying
Dhcp Server \xyz.domain.local add scope 10.0.10.0 255.255.255.0 “scope_name” “scope_description”
and change the netmask to whatever you wish it to be… In my case I changed to 255.255.254.0 for an extra 255 Ip addresses so instead of 192.168.1.1-254 I have 192.168.1.1 – 192.168.2.254
Step 3. Delete your scope…
Yes, delete your scope… Be sure that you have opened up the dhcp.txt and confirmed that all your reservations and other configurations are stored in there. (Note. delete using the default GUI MMC console)
Step 4. Import modified scope.
I called my modified scope dhcp_custom.txt and so I will import it with
C:>netsh exec c:dhcp_custom.txt
done and done!!
To sync your time with a known local timeserver/domain controller, open up CMD (preferably with administrative privileges) and type
net time timeserver /set /yes
If you instead want to sync with an external time server.
w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /manualpeerlist:pool.ntp.org /reliable:no /update
Another useful command to note is:
w32tm /stripchart /computer:si.pool.ntp.org /samples:5 /dataonly
this will check the difference between current time and external ntp server.
This applies for windows 7 and 8. Normally you would want to do this after installing a secondary operating system and it took over your main bootloader. (you would notice a restart when choosing the main os)
An additional tip to speedup the restart of your pc is to hold down shift when restarting… This will prompt you to choose what os you want before all the preload stuff
