User Account Control helps to implement proper permission levels for users accessing systems. Instead of needing administrator privileges, UAC allows admins to set up standard user permissions for users and escalate privileges in a granular way. In corporate networks, admins can use Group Policy to configure various UAC settings, including disabling UAC. Thanks to Windows Hello, you can now use a PIN for UAC.

Custom error message for access denied

27 septembre 2022 à 14:28

When you access a file share in Windows and the conditions for access are not met, you are normally presented with a generic access denied message. It is actually possible to customize the error message to provide more meaningful and understandable output that aids with dynamic access control, rather than the simple "contact your network administrator," which will invariably result in a call to the service desk. However, there are a couple of limitations to this functionality.

15 septembre 2022 à 16:16

Obtaining effective protection by virus scanners requires that they always use the latest definitions. Therefore, Microsoft Defender is not limited to getting its signature updates from the standard source for OS updates. Rather, you may specify several at once.

Setting Up Google as Default Search Engine for Microsoft Edge via Group Policy

30 avril 2021 à 08:32
Par : Kent Chen

The new Edge is great but since it’s from Microsoft, Bing is the default search engine out of the box. To change it, you can simply go to the Settings page, Privacy, search, and services, and click the Address bar and search at the bottom of the page. From there, you can manage search engines, add or set one as default, etc.

This will be fine if you are setting it for yourself. If you have many computers to manage through Active Directory, setting it up via Group Policy make things a lot easier.

Open Group Policy Manager, heading over to the following:

User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge

Double click the Manage Search Engines setting on the right.

And type the following in the box:

[{"allow_search_engine_discovery":true},{"is_default":true,"search_url":"https://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms}","name":"Google","keyword":"google.com"}]

Click OK to save the setting.

Microsoft Edge has a beautiful new tab page that has a search box defaulting to Bing. So to make things a bit more consistently, I’d recommend to enable and set the “Configure the new tab page search box experience” policy to Address bar. What it does is that when you type the search term in the search box in the new tab page, it will redirect you to the address bar, which uses the browser’s default search engine.

The policy is located at:

User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge > Default search provider

I believe that should be it.
