Managing and Maintaining Windows 10

by Glenn Weadock

After Windows 10 is deployed and its core services configured, administrators must equip the operating system for reliability, security, and speed over the long haul, using automated solutions where possible. This course will show you how to do it.

What you'll learn

Windows 10 doesn't manage itself. You'll need to discover how to configure servicing branches and updates using the new Windows-as-a-Service model. You'll need to learn to troubleshoot performance problems with both real time and extended monitoring. You'll also have to keep tabs on printers and on anti-malware protection, too. This course, Managing and Maintaining Windows 10, covers recovering damaged systems, from files and drivers through the Registry and the whole operating system. You'll also learn new features like Windows Hello and Credential Guard to keep Windows 10 accounts secure in the domain and in the cloud. Finally, you'll set up services, scheduled tasks, and PowerShell scripts to make maintenance as automatic as possible. After you're done with deployment, implementation, and configuring core services, managing and maintaining Windows 10 keeps your Microsoft network spinning reliably on its axis.
