  1. Win 10 locked

    On I accidentially locked my device (Surface Pro with Win10). Now I cannot login into my device anymore. I keep getting the message "An administrator has restricted sign in. To sign in, make sure your device is connected to the Internet, and have your administrator sign in first." The device is in a domain and the user I am trying to login with has admin-rights. What can I do?

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
