Exercise 1 - Manage Windows 10 Startup Folder

The Startup folder of the Start menu contains shortcuts to programs that are launched automatically when a user signs in to Windows. Typically, program shortcuts are created in the startup folder when a program such as an anti-malware is installed or when a multifunction device like a printer-scanner is added to Windows. As a matter of convenience, it is useful to have some programs to launch automatically as the application response time is remarkably faster. However, there may be non-essential programs in the start-up folder that can be removed or disabled to fine tune Windows’ system performance,

In this exercise, you will learn to manage Windows 10 startup programs.

Exercise 2 - Configure Computer Management for Remote Administration

Computer Management is a comprehensive console for managing system tools, storage subsystem and Windows services in a centralized user interface. In a single window, managing Task Viewer, Event Viewer, Performance Monitor, Device Manager, Disk Management and Services panel.

As with other Windows administration tools, Computer Management can be configured to remotely administer Windows servers and workstations. This is made possible by enabling firewall rules on the Windows server to allow incoming connections to it from a domain-joined workstation.

For this exercise, you will learn how to configure Windows Server and Windows 10 for remote administration.
