Only elevate UIAccess applications that are installed in secure locations o Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode o Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation If you disable UAC (or configure UAC to Never notify ), the system no longer prompts when you or a program makes changes that require administrative privileges. This is not a secure configuration, and could expose your computer to attacks. If you disable the UAC prompts, you should be careful about programs that you run because they'll have the same access to your computer as you do. After enabling or disabling UAC, you must restart the computer to apply the changes. Other changes (such as changing the prompt behavior) can be applied without restarting. Remote Desktop 0:00-0:31 In this lesson, we're going to look at the remote desktop feature of Windows. You can use remote desktop to remotely access the graphical desktop of other Windows systems over a network connection. In a modern networking environment, the ability to manage and maintain networks and computer systems on those networks remotely can be very important. Many organizations use remote desktop to lessen the time it takes to troubleshoot and resolve issues, as well as, reduce travel costs for support personnel. Remote Desktop Features 0:32-0:44 Windows remote desktop provides several important features. Accessing remote Windows desktops,sending print jobs to local printers, listening to audio from the remote system, and copying and pasting data between the local system and the remote system. Remote Desktop Support 0:45-1:24 You can only establish remote desktop connections to systems running the appropriate edition of Windows. Professional editions of Windows, Enterprise editions of Windows, and Ultimate editions of Windows all support remote desktop connections. Lower-end Windows editions don't support remote desktop sessions. For example, none of the home or base editions of Windows support the creation of remote desktop sessions. Fortunately, almost all Windows editions include remote desktop client software that allows them to establish a remote connection to another computer. With some versions of Windows, the home edition may not include the remote desktop client software, but it can be downloaded and installedfrom Microsoft's website. Enabling Remote Desktop 1:25-2:08 Remote desktop is not enabled by default on Windows systems. You have to manually turn remote desktop support on, and configure how you want it to run. Remote desktop settings are managedusing the System option in Control Panel under System and Security. After you enable remote desktop, you then need to specify a security option. You can either allow connections from any computer running any version of the remote desktop client. This option is not secure. Or you can restrict connections to just computers running the remote desktop client with network-level authentication. This will require that the connection be authenticated before the actual session is established. This is a much more secure option, but only remote desktop clients running Windows Vista or later will be able to connect.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
