Enterprise Data Protection in Windows 10

Companies are encouraging a single device for both organizational and personal use. It could be Bring your Own Device (BYOD), or the companies providing devices for both personal and enterprise use. Between the two, users of these devices will tend to store both enterprise data and personal data on same device. Besides this, there are company apps, company approved apps, as well as personal apps that the user might download for his or her own use and entertainment. Under such circumstances, it becomes essential that enterprises manage their data and apps securely without spoiling the user experience for the employees. Too many security restrictions, preventing users from downloading apps for personal use, may turn off the employee. Windows 10 offers a way that keeps both admins and employees happy. This article checks out Enterprise Data Protection in Windows 10. This is the name for the module that protects enterprise data against unintended or malicious use. The first thing here is proper encryption, so that even if the data is leaked or compromised, the data remains safe as others cannot decode it. The EDP module identifies enterprise and personal apps and lets the employees use them both at the same time without messing up. The EDP module allows for simultaneous display of both personal as well enterprise apps on the same screen. Eg. the Outlook app for checking personal mail as well as company mail. Employee experience will be enhanced, as they will not have to switch between enterprise and personal logins. If a personal document is marked as corporate, due to an error, the employee can initiate a process to claim it back (using the Audit method). Corporate data is protected even on employee-owned devices. If an employee marks a new document as being work related, it is automatically protected as enterprise data. When employees leave the organization or move to another department, you can remotely wipe off all the traces of corporate data on his or her device – without affecting their personal data. This makes sure that they cannot misuse enterprise data...Learn more on our forum.

Microsoft has made available Windows 10 build 10074 for participants of the Windows Insider Program. We brought you an exclusive first-look at this build yesterday, and now you can get your hands on it too. Build 10074 features improvements to Cortana, the user interface, new Windows sounds, and much more. Oh, and the return of Aero Glass! "ISO files of the April Update (build 10074) are now available for download. You'll still receive this update automatically via Windows Update, but if you prefer a clean install or you want to install on a virtual machine, you can download an ISO file instead." So how do you download it? You can also head over to Windows Update and download the new build, regardless if you are a fast or slow ring participant. If you'd rather have more control over your installation, you can snag the ISO instead. You can also watch our video walk-through of the new build below.

Can't open Win32 apps from the Start Menu

As I tested out the Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10061 for the first time, I noticed a slight problem. When I tried to open Windows applications (Win32) like Microsoft Office, which I use a lot, it simply would not open. The first couple times I thought it was something wrong with my PC or I was missing something, so I tried to open other Win32 desktop apps, to no avail. So I tried the newer apps that came out with Windows 10, like Mail and Calendar and they opened up just fine. So I started to wonder what was going on until I read up on the write-up by Gabe Aul on Windows 10 build 10061. Aul details new improvements and features, and finally I get to the part where there are know issues and bugs. I stopped dead in my tracks. Saying that the inability to launch Win32 applications from the Start menu "is a bit painful" is an understatement. I use many Win32 applications (not all of them daily), so I can't imagine pinning every one I use to the Taskbar. I don't think I have enough room and I have an enough of a hard time trying to find Win32 applications by icons alone. It would be nice to just open the Start menu and open the application I want to use with no problems. So, it looks like for now, I will have to wait until the next build or until an update releases to fit the issue. It's not "painful," it's a very annoying pain in the ass. For now, I will just have to deal with it like everyone else, and I have to keep in mind that I am just using a preview build. So for now, at least, I will have to allow this known bug to drive me insane...This shows that things can go wrong when using a Preview Version on any new program...Stay up to date for fix to different Windows 10 issues at windows8newsinfo forum.

NailO a thumbnail-sized Bluetooth trackpad
Say you’re cooking dinner while reading a recipe on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone. You want to scroll down the page to see the next step, but your hands are tied up prepping food (or so messy that you don’t want to touch the screen and leave smudge marks all over it). Researchers at the MIT Media Laboratory have a solution. It’s called NailO, and it’s a wearable Bluetooth trackpad that you can wear on your thumbnail. Just swipe the touch surface and it’ll send a command to scroll down the page. You could also use it for other applications — switch tracks in a music app, pause video playback, swipe to answer an incoming phone call, or even enter text by tracing letters. There are a few different methods for interacting with computers and mobile devices without actually touching them, ranging from voice controls to 3D gesture support that lets you wave your hands in front of the screen. NailO is a relatively discrete solution since it doesn’t require you to speak out loud or gesticulate wildly. On the other hand, it does require you to wear a gadget on your thumb. The NailO prototype features a microcontroller, Bluetooth radio and antenna, capacitive touch sensor, and a battery. To save power, the researchers are looking into ways to automatically turn the device off when it’s not in use and easily turn it on with an action such as touching the surface with a finger for two or three seconds to activate it. The researchers are hoping to make the NailO even smaller in the future and point out that you can customize the look of the device by putting different designs on top of the touch surface, making the gadget look like nail art. Some people already put stickers on their fingernails, so why not put something useful underneath that sticker? Intrigued, why not visit windows8newsinfo forum for videos, images and more.

why Windows 10 build 10061 is showing up
This is why Windows 10 build 10061 is showing up for some Insiders. A number of reports on the web this morning have claimed that Windows 10 build 10061 is being offered to some Windows Insiders who installed build 10056. This isn't the first time something like this has happened, so I think it's time to explain why this actually happens and why it usually doesn't matter. Firstly, build 10061 is only being offered to those who installed a leaked build, not an official one. The official builds and the leaked builds are tweaked ever so slightly, which make Windows Update behave differently. Official builds are tweaked to look for 'low' flight risk builds, whereas the leaked builds are tweaked to look for 'medium' flight risk builds. Insiders usually only ever get access to builds marked as low risk unless Microsoft make an exception, meaning medium and high are generally for internal employees running on the Microsoft internal network, and sometimes close partners. There's no way to download these medium and high risk builds as they require authentication with the internal Microsoft server, and rather obviously the majority of normal Windows Insiders are not Microsoft Employees / Partners and therefore are unable to download. So if you're running a leaked build and see Windows Update failing to install a newer build, it doesn't matter. The build it's trying to download is something you'll most likely never be able to get hold of, unless Microsoft make an exception or lower the flight risk of said build...At windows8newsinfo forum we are following all leaks, rumors, official news from Microsoft leading up to the full release and general availability of Windows 10 The Next Chapter.
Latest Trillian Beta Fixes Windows 10 (Build 10041+) PDF Print E-mail

Since the release of Windows 10 Build 10041, Trillian, the instant messenger client, suffered some issues regarding window sizing (along with Firefox, Chrome, and a few other applications). Basically, the window would progressively shrink every time you type and the resize controls would hang about five pixels outside the window edge. Some windows would also “be open” but cannot be unminimized, requiring you to close them in the task bar and reopen them by double-clicking on the contact. Cerulean Studios has just released Trillian 5.6 Beta, along with its associated release notes, which seem to address both of these issues. I say seem because the latter issue (chat windows staying minimized forever) was intermittent, so I can't tell whether my testing is simply luck. That said, I tried to make it happen and I couldn't. Either way, the chat window shrinking bug was vastly more annoying. Before this update, Trillian was just about useless on Windows 10. The only way to get it somewhat function was to maximize the window to a full monitor. Even snapping it to the left side of the screen would not prevent it from slowly shrinking itself. I hope this news helps some of our readers as much as it helps me! Source: Trillian

Windows 10: Xbox One streaming could go live soon PDF Print E-mail

Microsoft has been working on a new streaming service for quite some time now. It all began with the “Rio” project which was later discontinued, and the story went on until December 2014 when word reached our ears that Microsoft is working on Rio’s cloud-based spiritual successor dubbed “Arcadia”. Well, Microsoft’s efforts could soon pay off and if all goes according to our hopes and expectations, Xbox One owners who happen to participate in the Windows 10 Insider program might soon be able to stream their favorite Xbox One games on their PCs, tablets and so on. Xbox One – Windows 10 streaming on the way? A couple of days ago Xbox’ Major Nelson confirmed via Twitter that a new Xbox dashboard preview update will be released containing various bug fixes and refinements to existing features. Sure enough the preview patch arrived and surprisingly enough, one of the new “refinements” can be found under the System & App settings menu. The new option is called “Allow game streaming to other devices (beta)”. The feature presents itself in the Xbox dashboard but it currently doesn’t work. Evidently the streaming service is compatible with Windows 10 devices,

Windows 10 Secure Boot to Boot out Other Operating Systems PDF Print E-mail

Microsoft has just recently announced that they plan to push through what they started when they launched Windows 8—securing the computer against operating systems other than their own. That plan even includes old Windows versions that are no longer part of the bigger picture (XP). That struck fear in the hearts of the open source community and computer enthusiasts and struck a chord in the nerves of the business community who were not ready to relinquish their freedom to choose their operating systems. Some people have as many operating systems as they have partitions on their hard disks. It’s fun and challenging to do, no doubt about it. Microsoft however plans to finish the job it started by making disabling secure boot optional, not mandatory. When that happens, is that users won’t be able to boot any other operating system other than what the OS sticker on the case says. Will that scenario be really possible? Is Microsoft ready for a possible major backlash that could mar the release of their much anticipated operating system?
