Windows 10 Group policy needed for Essentials

From Rob:  Thanks Rob!

Hi Susan, I would’ve commented on
but it looks like comments are off.

Thanks for sharing your firewall exception for Windows 10’s RDP.  It’s a one-off manual fix, but I tracked down how to accomplish the same via GPO:
Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Windows Firewall with Advanced Security > New Rule > Predefined > Remote Desktop – RemoteFX

This is tested and confirmed working on a customer’s domain (in ADDITION to the usual rules at Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Network Connections->Windows Firewall->Domain Profile )

BTW, Google really failed me on this one, and I usually seek you out for stuff like this, so I figured I’d share back atcha.  Thanks for all your hard work!


I need your help

I need your help.  I’m going social, I’m going viral to showcase that Windows 10 needs to make changes.  Right now it puts too many of us at risk over updating issues and the lack of documentation in updates doesn’t allow us to validate or understand what is included in the updates we are installing.

I ask you to join me in asking Satya Nadella for a change.

See you in DC

In the San Francisco Airport getting ready for the direct flight to Washington DC.  And today should be Patch Tuesday release day to boot.  So if technology agrees with me I’ll be writing up my take on patch releases using the onboard wifi on the plane.


More info on tweaks needed for Windows 10

Rob aka Mr. Essentials is going to town with his additional tweaks needed to get Windows 10 working with Essentials.

Check out and and

Bottom line you need to make tweaks in the Group policy to make it see the 10’s due to the WMI filter.
