    User Logins on Common Workstation Locations Configuring


    I have a series of laptops running W10 Professional that will be running in our different A/V rooms, and these laptops are on our domain. For security reasons I’ll want anyone using them to log on with their own domain userid, not a common one for each room. When they log on I want them to have a common desktop set of icons and other parameters to be set for that location as well, but I’m not sure how to do all that so I’m looking for some help. Here’s things I’d like to have:

    • As I mentioned, they should have the same set of desktop icons. I assume I can put those in in the default user profile. Edge, though, pops up regardless and it’s not in there.
    • I want them all to have the same logon timeout from inactivity, 15 minutes.
    • I want to have the text enlarged to a common percentage, as much as 175%, so that it’s easy to read in the A/V room, but what I’m finding is that the text zoom percentage is at the individual user level, not the all user level, so I don’t know how to set that up as a default.
    • We use Office 2013 and I’d like that preconfigured for folks vs. going through a first time setup the first time they log in to the machine. Is that possible?
    Any ideas on those, or how do other folks handle common workstation locations and user logins?

    :)

    Configure VMware Workstation


    Hi,
    Based on a scenario, I have queries as following.


    • VMware Workstation 12 Pro is installed in a Windows 10 Desktop.
    • As guest OS, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows Server 2012 R2 are installed in VMware Workstation.
    • I have to do a setup for networking practice with guest OS.
    • I have DHCP enabled router installed by the internet service provider.
    Network setting of all guest OS is bridged and I have to install and configure DNS, DHCP and AD in Windows Server 2012 R2.



    I am not able to configure DNS and DHCP in Windows Server 2012 R2.
    I read, only one DHCP can be configured in a LAN and already a DHCP-enabled router in this LAN.



    Please guide me a tip and trick for setting up networking with guest OS in this scenario.

    I believe, I explained well.

    Location service is greyed out

    Hi Shahriar,

    Thank you for responding.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused for you, I suggest you to try the below troubleshooting steps and check If it helps.

    Step 1: Steps to turn on the Location settings.

    • Login as an administrator.
    • Press Windows key, type Location settings and select
      Change location settings.
    • Check whether Location for this device is On by clicking on
      Change
      .
    • Also turn on Location as well.

    Step 2: And as you are unable to set the service Geolocation service to automatic, I suggest you to run SFC scan and check.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Try to set the service to automatic by following the steps provided in the above post by Praveen Venugopal.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.
