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