You can enable the legacy SMB client to access network devices using SMBv1 protocol via the Control Panel (Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off -> SMB 1.0 / CIFS File Sharing Support -> SMB 1.0 / CIFS Client). In addition, you can access the features installation dialog by running the optionalfeatures.exe command.
If you use anonymous access to connect NAS or other computers, you need to enable the insecure guest logon policy. In Windows 1803/1709 it blocks access to shared network folders over the SMB 2.0 protocol under an anonymous (guest) account. To do this, in the Windows 10 Local Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), enable the Enable insecure guest logons policy in the GPO section: Computer Configuration -> Administrative templates -> Network -> Lanman Workstation.
Windows 10 Consumer Experience adds tiles to the Start Menu for things like Candy Crush, Solitaire, and other non-business applications. There’s a simple way to disable this. Note that this does not remove any of the built-in apps like Calendar, Mail, or even Xbox.
The best and most practical way to disable this would be Group Policy. There’s a setting called “Turn off Microsoft consumer experiences” located at Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Cloud Content”. If you enable this policy, the extra stuff will go away.
Problem: Receiving the “TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts” error in event viewer for Event ID 4226? A limit was first imposed back in XP SP2, with a concurrent connection limit of ten different connections per one second.
(Number of half open connections)
Although most users won’t notice a difference in network activity if it’s increased, there is a registry value that can be set to zero to disable the maximum number of connections allowed.
This would be helpful for anyone using a download manager or torrent program that allows many simultaneous connections at once.
Open “regedit” and navigate to“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters.”
add a dword32 “EnableConnectionRateLimiting”set to “0” hex
If you don’t want Chrome to open a new process for every single tab, its possible to set the browser to create only a single process for multiple tabs all browsing the same site. To change the setting, right-click the Google Chrome icon in your “Start” menu and select “Properties.” Click the “Target” text box and scroll to the end of the line. Insert the phrase “–process-per-site” after the end of the text currently in the box and click “Apply.”

How to fix USB flash, SD memory card, CD disc & Pen drive write-protected error?
We use removable storage devices a lot on a Windows computer, and some of you should at least once encounter the issue of the disk malfunction, which is mostly about “the disk is write protected”. When Windows starts to write protect your disk, for example, a SanDisk 4GB USB flash drive, you can no longer use it anymore until you remove the write protection. And the fix methods are as follows.
Method 1. diskpart command
Step 1. Open administrative Command Prompt.
Step 2. Type these commands one by one and press Enter key after each:
select disk # (# is the number of USB drive with which you’re getting the write-protected error and is plugged in)
attributes disk clear readonly
Step 3. You may now close Command Prompt and re-plug the USB drive and check if the issue is resolved, by dragging a file to the drive or trying to format in Windows Disk Management or EaseUS Partition Master coming in the later part.
