• Sorry to say your way does not work in newer versions of Windows 11 as they have disabled ALL windows from piping up on top of the setup windows so NONE of your options will work anymore. Seems Microsoft has fixed that loophole so we need a new work around. Seems this method is out dated.

    Seems Microsoft has fixed that loophole so we need a new work around. Seems your method is out dated. But this one I just figured out works as of June 26th 2022 I just used.

    1. A working way get to the create new account then click accessibility icon little man on bottom of screen.

    2. Then bring up Bluetooth and devices.
    Find the wifi adapter and disable it

    3. Close window and continue the setup new account. Leave password blank if you wish.

    4. Continue with setup and your done with an OFFLINE account.

    5. Then go back into settings and tenable your wifi adapter and connect to your internet and your all done

    Toss one up to us little guys to come up with a new fix.

  • Then ways mentioned above no longer works as Microsoft has stopped the command widows from keyboard from popping up.

    YES YOU CAN!

    Windows 11 as they have disabled all popup windows from popping up from keyboard commands in newer versions
    But luckily for you today June 26th 2022 I found a work around. Just follow these steps and have an OFFLINE account.

    Must Connect to internet to work.
    1. Start setup and create new account, add an email doesn’t matter which click next.

    2. Then click accessibility icon, little man on bottom of screen. It brings up some settings.

    3. Then bring up Bluetooth and devices.
    Find the wifi adapter and disable it

    4. Close window and continue the setup new account. Leave password blank if you wish.

    5. Continue with setup and your done with an OFFLINE account to desktop.

    6. Then go back into settings and re enable your wifi adapter and connect to your internet and your all done

  • Sir we are having user1 in server1. We want to collect logs of server1 from server2 using credentials of user1. Surprisingly even after entering the credentials of user1 in event viewer it is taking loggedin credentials of the user logged into server2.

  • No worries Joshua, if you ever cover third party let me know. I’ve worked with the STIGs for 18 years, honestly we don’t have the tools we need without going to third parties.

  • Can this be done on a folder that only gets created once a user signs on? Each user, in their own appdata folder, will have a folder created once a certain app is launched.
    My hope is to have that folder have authenticated users have full control upon creation.

  • Run the netsh command from an admin elevated command prompt.

  • We don’t use ADFS, but we do use Azure AD. Can vCenter 7.0 directly use Azure AD as an IdP, or does it require ADFS as an intermediary?

    Same situation – Any luck

  • What are the Powershell commands for enabling shared config and adding additional servers?

  • Hi Ruben,

    How can I restrict and remove ability to query Active Directory in Excel for a specific AD group? From a security perspective, allowing regular users to dump entire AD User table into a XLS not ideal at my company.

  • hi,
    how would you do when part of your sent emails are sent from third party mail server ?
    Like when you use other service to send your marketing emails, etc.
    Whe use google workspace, but also have an internal mail server and external mail sender service…

  • Thank you for sharing.
    For some reason the switch “–accept-package-agreements” didn’t work for my case.
    Below is the output at the end.

    Do you agree to all the source agreements terms?
    [Y] Yes [N] No: An unexpected error occurred while executing the command:
    0x8a150042 : Error reading input in prompt

    The command I ran is “winget install wingetcreate –accept-package-agreements”

  • Do you need to disable TLS 1.3 on Server 2022 for Exchange to work with Windows 11 clients for exmaple (Outlook and/or OWA)

  • Worked perfectly. Thanks for the posting. Always hated having to reboot when adding a computer to a Security group. Many times, you simply cannot restart a server to pick it up.

  • Hi Emanuel!

    Giving credit to you as my online ‘mentor’, I now have scripts on how to automate VM creation (complete with virtual hard drive and Win10 OS, and virtual network). Another one that I was able to create is a script that automates network configuration and internet settings configuration to enable internet access for the generated VMs. All thanks to you!

    Now as I went back in here, it seems like I’m not the only one having trouble with parameter availability across Powershell versions. We use Powershell 5.1 in here. Now I’m looking forward to create 2 programs/utilities out of the 2 scripts that I’ve mentioned above, complete with password verification before you can use said utilities. However, I’ve just found out that the parameters -MaskInput and -AsPlainText are only available in PowerShell 7.0.

    Admitting again that I’m a newbie in PowerShell coding, I wanted to create codes to verify equality of passwords being entered. If you have a more efficient syntax that is 5.1 friendly, that would be great! But my obvious question should be: What equivalent parameters can I use? Or is there a workaround set of syntax in 5.1 so I can convert to plain text string what has been stored in System.Security.SecureString (in readable or unencrypted form, of course).

    Good to be back in this forum! Hehehe!

    Thank you!

  • Hi Robert,
    It shows nothing special just I set up:
    ExtensionInstallForcelist: cchlfgjjhgdoibhfabfonddfjhmocjcg;C:ProgramDataEdgeupdate.xml
    ExtensionInstallSources:
    files:///C:/ProgramData/Edge/*

    I try to relocate extension files to another directory, maybe Edge doesn’t reach them in ProgramData.
    Thanks for the reply and I’ll let you know about result.

  • Hi,
    If I want to install extensions from the local file system how I need to add its path, please?
    I create these keys buth the extension doesn’t installed:

    HKLM/SOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftEdgeExtensionInstallForcelist
    1=cchlfgjjhgdoibhfabfonddfjhmocjcg;C:ProgramDataEdgeupdate.xml

    HKLM/SOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftEdgeExtensionInstallSources
    1=files:///C:/ProgramData/Edge/*
