If you are using Microsoft Edge and you visit a website and click on an email address to email someone more than likely you’ve seen this pop-up.
While the above pop-up is for your security, it can be annoying. Here is how to disable the message “Did you mean to switch apps?”
Step One: Open Internet Explorer. Yes! Not Edge. Go to a website that has an email address link. Click on the email address and you will receive a popup like below.
Step Two: Uncheck “Always ask before opening this type of address”
By unchecking the above option, this also disables the “Did You Mean to Switch Apps” message in Microsoft Edge.

I setup a Windows Server 2008 for VPN access using Remote Routing Access Service. When a user would connect to the VPN the DNS servers would be reversed. For example, I had two local DNS servers and an external (OpenDNS) DNS server.
However, the adapter would always assign the external DNS server first and then the internal DNS servers as secondary.
The VPN client couldn’t locate local resources on the network over the VPN.
In my troubleshooting this issue, I found that this is actually a bug. Here is what I did to fix the issue.
Step One: On your RRAS server open the Registry to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RemoteAccess\Parameters\IP
Step Two: Make a Dword32 Key and Name it SuppressDNSNameServers. Give the value of the key 1.
Step Three: Restart the RRAS service on the server.
You should be set! If the above doesn’t work, try rebooting your server and trying your VPN client again.

I had a customer complain to me a little while back. Everytime, he would restart his computer his Number Lock on his keyboard would not stay enabled. Here is what I did to fix his issue.
P.S. This also worked on my personal Windows 10 1607 computer.
- Change the value of HKEY_Users/<UserProfiles>/ControlPanel/Keyboard/InitialKeyboardIndicators to 2147483650 for ALL USERS profiles not only for .Default.
Step Two: Once the above edits in the Registry have been completed. Shutdown the computer.
Step Three: Turn on your computer and wait for login screen (NumLock is still off). Log into your computer.
Step Four: Enable NUMLOCK and shutdown your computer.
Step Five: Turn on your computer. NumLock should now be enabled.
Let me know if the above solution works for you. Hat Tip to this Reddit Thread.

This morning I noticed I was missing a bunch of the health reports from my servers that were running Server Essentials 2012 or 2016.
I opened the Dashboard on one of the servers and found these errors. . . . Cannot Send Mail and Windows Server Essentials Management Service is not running.
I went into Services, like the error message suggested, but the Windows Server Essential Management Service was still running.
I did a little digging and I found that apparently there is a bug in the Server Essentials software and when Daylight Savings Time occurs the server no longer can email health reports. Continue reading
After installing two Server 2016 Essentials servers this week, I found Anywhere Access on both servers didn’t work properly. When I browsed to the Remote Web Access URL (mycompany.remotewebaccess.com) , I was always greeted with the Internet Information Services (IIS) page. I figured I may have setup something wrong, so I double-checked my settings but everything was setup correctly.
I then went to mycompany.remotewebaccess.com/remote and the site then came up fine.
This is the workaround I found to fix this issue.
Step One: Open Internet Information Services (IIS)
Step Two: Go to Sites > Default Web Site > HTTP Redirect
Step Three: Check the box Redirect requests to this destination: “Enter company URL with /remote at the end.
Check the box “Only redirect requests to content in this directory (not subdirectories)”
Step Four: Click Apply You should be set now. If this doesn’t work for you, restart the Default Web Site.
I found this forum thread on TechNet with other experiencing the same issues. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to comment on that thread. That will help bring it to Microsoft’s attention. I believe this is a bug with Server 2016. Server 2012 and 2012R2, this worked perfectly without having to do this HTTP Redirect. I will keep you posted if I learn more.
