  1. Windows 10 intermittently cannot make outbound connections


    Windows 10 version: 1903

    Windows 10 will intermittently fail to make outbound connections. I work in a small office and this has happened on multiple Windows 10 PCs randomly throughout the day. Interestingly, it has not happened on any of the Macs in the office. I can still ping local IPs, such as the gateway and other devices that are on the network. Also, inbound connections seem to work fine; we have remoting software installed and my coworker can remote into my PC and control it without issue. I am unable to ping google.com, 8.8.8.8, or the local firewall. Randomly throughout the day, the issue will fix itself and reappear multiple times, sometimes lasting an hour, other times only a couple of minutes.

    Things we have tried:

    • Pinging local firewall
    • Disabling windows firewall
    • Rebooting to safe mode with networking
    • Flushing DNS
    • Rebooting local firewall

    Any help is greatly appreciated and if any other information is needed, I will happily provide it.

    :)

    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
