Windows 10: The Sands of time

This short blog will be about some Windows 10 time sync issues and how to deal with them. It’s summertime again, time to set your clock one hour forward.

You will notice: GPU 0 – 3D This means Outlook is using hardware graphics acceleration. …

The Windows firewall rises

In this blog I’ll explain how to deploy your Windows firewall baseline policy rules into Intune. Configuring firewall rules on your Windows 10 device shouldn’t be forgotten.
