The second meeting of the Scottish PowerShell User Group will take place on Wednesday 17th May 2017 at our virtual meeting home.
The first meetup of the Scottish PowerShell User Group has been announced as the 12th of April 2017.
The Scottish PowerShell User Group was officially born today! After spending some time reading about all the user groups in the US and in England I thought it was about time we got the same coverage here in Scotland.
Back in February, Microsoft released version 5.5 of the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET). This new release gave us official Windows 10 support. But we waited a long time for that support. Windows 10 was available to the masses in July 2015. But Microsoft has suggested that this new EMET is not necessary for everyone. But what does that mean exactly?
I was recently reminded that my WSUS server is no longer available on the network. The Windows 8.1 tablet couldnt find it and as a result couldnt update to Windows 10. This is how I reset WSUS settings on the tablet and used Windows Update for the future.
If you’re used to renaming files at the command prompt you might be surprised to discover that to rename files with PowerShell requires a few more keystrokes.
There are tools such as Solarwinds V2V that convert from one virtual disk format to another. However I wanted to see if it was possible to convert disk formats with PowerShell. You can do it. With Microsoft tools. But unfortunately not directly.
In their Surface Pro 3 October firmware update Microsoft have provided support for the new Surface Pro 4 Type Cover. Many people are ditching their Surface Pro 3 type covers in favour of the new one released with Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 last month. But if you are outside of the US, beware.
If you have a Surface 3 you will be receiving a new firmware update from today to help improve the stability of mobile broadband.
As I tweeted about yesterday, Microsoft have released a new firmware update for the Surface Pro 3 which improves power usage when an SD card is being used.
