If you are like me, I love the new Windows 10 Spotlight images on my Lock Screen. I like these photos so much that it would be nice to be able to download and save these files.
I found that the quickest and simplest way to get these lockscreen images is to download the SpotBright App from the Windows 10 store.
This app does exactly as it advertises. It downloads the daily lockscreen images that Microsoft uses on Windows 10 desktop and mobile.
Once the app is downloaded just do a Fast Search and it will find all the current Spotlight images that Microsoft currently offers. Just download the images files and you are set! The cool part is that each photo has a mobile and desktop version. You get to choose what photo to use according to what device you want the photo on!
I setup a Windows Server 2012 R2 remote desktop server today. I wanted to add the desktop experience for the remote desktop users. I couldn’t seem to find the role I needed to install. After a little research, I found it is actually quite simple to do. Here is how to add desktop experience on a Server 2012 R2
Open Server Manager > Add Roles and Features > Role-Based or Feature-Based Installation
Next select the server that you want to add this feature to. Continue to hit next until you come to the “Features” installation screen. Scroll down the available features until you find User Interfaces and Infrastructure. Expand the menu and Select Desktop Experience.
Click the box beside Desktop Experience and go through the rest of the prompts to install this feature. You may need to reboot your server to finish installation. That is all there is to it!

The other day I was setting up a Toshiba e-STUDIO2830c printer to scan to a network folder on the server. I entered the server path along with my credentials in the “Remote 1” scan destination. Every time I went to save my settings I would receive the following error. Please enter a valid value. (Network Path)
After double-checking to make sure I had all the correct network paths and credentials, I decided this was a false warning or weird firmware issue. This is the fix to this issue.
You will see Remote 1 and Remote 2 scan destinations. Even if you are only using Remote scan destination 1, remote scan destination 2 can’t be empty.
I entered the same scan destination under remote 2 and boom it worked!

This is the first time I have used the Office Deployment toolkit for Office 2016. To be honest, I have never used the Office Deployment toolkit at all. I decided to blog about how to install Office 2016 from a shared network drive using Office Deployment toolkit. This blog post may be a bit basic and tedious – but I want those who are new at using this tool to be able to figure out how to use it. I am also documenting the process for myself so I don’t forget how to do it.
In the process of learning how to use the Office deployment toolkit, I found many websites that had parts of the process documented. However, it seemed they never quite had a full documentation process. I will show you from start to finish on how to deploy Office 2016 from a network location.
