Hello!

Here I have some tips that I found useful while working with Windows 10

  1. Set Windows Photo Viewer as default
  2. Change registered owner of the system
  3. Install .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 10 (error code 0x800F081F)
  4. Windows Server 2012 R2 - Windows Update fails
  5. Create personal users area and implement folder redirection

 

 

1. Set Windows Photo Viewer as default

Really hate the new photo default viewer of Windows 10, and hate the most the fact that we have to do some fiddling to get the old viewer back, aargh. At present, when I try to view *.jpg files on my Windows 10 I get this error message:

 

To fix this issue, create an import a .reg file with this data:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\print\DropTarget]
"Clsid"="{60fd46de-f830-4894-a628-6fa81bc0190d}"

 

After you have imported the *.reg file, you can right-click the affected picture and choose Open with > browse to Windows Photo Viewer and choose to open it as default :) sweet

 

2. Change registered owner of the system

Fire up the register and visit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion and if you don't have it created these two entries (String Value)

  • RegisteredOwner
  • RegisteredOrganization

That will show to Management Systems like Desktop Central who is the boss of that machine

 

3. Install .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 10 (error code 0x800F081F)

It may happens that, after the installation/upgrade of Windows 10, you got an application (app, as it is called nowadays in Microsoft language) that needs .NET Framework. Right, the best way to install this is by going to appwiz.cpl >  Turn Windows Features on and off > and tick the NET 3.5, but eventually you'd be given this error message:

To fix this nasty error, I've done as follows:

  1. Search Duck Duck for "Windows 10 iso" and download the Windows 10 installation media from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10
  2. Choose "Create installation media for another PC". choose the *.iso format and save it at the root of the C:\ drive
  3. Once the *.iso download is completed, right-click to it and mount it, note the drive letter being assigned (on my example the letter E:\)
  4. Finally, open cmd in privilege mode and run this command:
dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:netfx3 /all /source:E:\sources\sxs /limitaccess

 

4. Windows Server 2012 R2 - Windows Update fails

If you can't run Windows Update on your windows box, execute this command under admin rights:

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

 

5. Create personal users area and implement folder redirection

Roaming profile copies data and systems data, a bit messy if your ask me. Folder redicrection, on the other hand, it just deals with user's data and put in on a location where you can backup.To make this change on your domain, you do as follows:

  • On your file server create a folder called "Home", and don't share it at all
  • Here comes the tricky part, inside the Home folder create a folder for every single user: account1, account2, account3
  • Edit the Advanced Security Setting of each of the user's folder and set them as below, where you:
    • Give Full Control to Domain Admins, this is for us to see the contents
    • Give Full Control to Backup Operations (if you have that group on your domain), this is for the system to do a backup of that folder
    • Give Full Control to the user to manage the content of his/her data, and also ensure you set him/her as the owner of the files

 

  • Once you've done all of all for each one of the folders of your users, click on the Run command and open fsmgmt.msc
  • Using the Shared Folders console, connect to your File Server if needed, then right-click on Shares and select "New Share"

  • Follow the Wizard and ensure you share the folder with the dollar sign, this is so that is hidden on the network. You'll need to later on map that folder to the user's workstation either by GPO or by running: net use H: \\FileServer\username$

  • At the time of reaching the Share Permission, set the "Everyone" group with Full Access. Don't worry, NTFS permissions always take precedence over Network permissions, so your shared folders will be hidden and accessible only the defined individual users

Finally, to ensure users get access to the same Documents folder, create a new GPO called "Folder redirection", then set User Configuration > Windows Setting > Folder Redirection
