Exercise 1 - Manage Administrative Tools

Windows 10 is bundled with a group of applications organized under the Windows Administrative Tools folder. The admin tools provide a set of applications for performing the usual system maintenance such as event log audits, restrict computer access with local computer policy, disk volume management, resource monitoring, fend off unauthorized network traffic using Windows Firewall and among others.

When Windows is a domain-joined computer, its capabilities can be further extended with the Remote Server Administration Tools or RSAT. RSAT has tools such as Active Directory Users and Computers for managing domain-joined servers, domain controllers, creating users or managing security groups in the Active Directory Domain network.

Exercise 2 - Configuring Accessibility Options

Ease of Access also known as Accessibility Options in earlier Windows versions, provide settings to make a Windows computer accommodate users with limiting physical condition or impairment.

There is a wide selection of settings on how a user interacts with Windows 10, such as receiving system notifications, display properties, mouse, keyboard and audio settings. The Ease of Access center can be accessed either in Settings or in the traditional Control Panel window. Options in Ease of Access are configured on a piecemeal and per-user basis only and will not affect the other users who share the same Windows 10 computer.
