All right. Welcome back. Ladies and gentlemen, here we are for a part. Three on this section here was still in module one. We're discussing what the core services are built in tow. Microsoft 365 Now
we're gonna carry on here with the Windows operating system. Now, it may be weird to consider Windows as part of Microsoft. 365 however, is becoming So Microsoft are very much pushing for windows as a service effectively.
So you might see this s o. It will either be,
as a service or you might see operating system as a service.
These two key factors here
you may see them. These the key factors thes key acronyms. You may see these around windows as a service is going to become a bigger thing in the coming years. Microsoft were on Windows 10 right now, as you're well aware. But Microsoft, our king too,
push Windows 10 further. They don't They're not looking to, I reckon not. Even in the next five years
we're not going to see Windows 11 or whatever the next Windows is. We're just going to see Windows 10 become modular. More and more modular where you can just pick what you need from your Windows environment.
Now, Windows 10 Enterprise actually does come as part of much off 365 on some of the higher level subscription models. Now it only comes as an upgrade, and you need to have Windows seven pro or above in order to install it. Now, that doesn't mean that it must be Windows seven pro.
in terms of like, you don't necessarily what? The important part here, that me rephrase that is that you need the pro part.
So it needs to be Windows 788.1 or 10
and then you must have pro or above. So if you're using Windows seven home, for example,
that's just not gonna work. Unfortunately, that's a big red X straight across the top. Unfortunately, home is not an option, so it needs to be pro above and Windows seven or above.
So that's something to keep in mind. But this is comes with certain levels of subscription where you can bring all of your machines up to what Microsoft called the modern desktop. And that's Windows 10
only is an upgrade, as I mentioned now, in terms of collaboration. We're looking at three Sorry, four main things that we've discussed teams already teams is way had that in one of our previous videos. The other ones that we're looking at here are APS. So if you've used, for example, when you press the start button
on your computer as an example,
you might find that you know when you hit the little Windows logo in the bottom in the bottom corner. There you get your your
menu pop up and it split down the middle in Windows 10.
here you may find that there's lots of little tiles all around. Now these air generally will point to APS. Now. There's a big difference between APS and applications. APS come from the Microsoft store. So if you were to press the Windows key on your machine and type of store, if you're using Windows 10
you see the Microsoft store and those anything you download from, there is an app
applications of what you might find if you're downloading the old. I don't want to say legacy, but the more well known and common version programs online. So if you download for example, TV viewer Teoh remote connect into a machine or if you download through the
well, for example, if you download the marks off 365 APS that we discussed in a previous video.
Those are applications. They call the maps, but they are actually applications. It's an execute herbal or an M. S. I file that you download to your machine, you double click it and you install it to a location.
APS don't generally tend tohave anything more than an install or buy button on. Then the company operating system will then set up the rest. It will know where to put it on how to keep up to date.
All right, the White board, which is the next part, is what Microsoft basically build into the what we call the inking service in in the Microsoft environment. Now, now, what they're referring to with that is the white board system. Now I'm gonna bring this up life on my system. Now,
bear with me. I'm gonna drag it onto the screen here
on what they have done is they've added an ink workspace section
and what this does. There we go. So you got the bar at the bottom No.
If I click on this
looks good.
Seen this
whiteboard? There we go. Right, So I'm just downloading it now on my screen. I will drag it on as soon as it is done. It takes the first time you launch it. Takes about a minute, Will go off is an app. So it's built in to Microsoft environment effectively,
but what it does is it allows you to then have a whiteboard environment that will allow you to actually see
on share your screen with other people almost like collaboration. Tool. There we go. So I've just pop that on the screen There you can see straightaway. So it's Microsoft White Board, and it's actually loading up for the first time. Anyway, it's loading up on developing a brand new white board, so you have to
get the important updates to policies. That's fine. We're gonna click, except on that one.
So welcome toe White Board. This is where accounts so you can see here got this video at the top here. It just allows multiple people toe all work at the same time. It's effectively a co authoring tool like a giant whiteboard like you'd find in an office environment, and that's effectively what we're looking at. So you have your tools along the bottom here,
and then you would effectively pick one. You know, you could change the color and the thick nurses that yes, thank you very much. Fair enough. But there's our There's our pen. You can pick the thickness there on. This is actually if you're using a stylist like I am on this video here, when you draw,
it actually is touch sensitive to the pressure you put. So if I press hard,
you get a much thicker line, as you can see there than if I just quickly move the pen across the board so you could do plenty. Lots of different things here and there. Up here, you can have your This is your little menu here. If you want to design Inc to shape, you can do into table, which allows you to draw a table on the screen, draw shapes.
It will also allow you to invite other people. There's my ugly mug in the corner there that we've discussed before.
If I tap on here, I can invite someone I can create a share, a link to share this, It will create a link for me
on. Then I can share this link, Byron E mail to people or Oh, okay. We couldn't created for the whiteboard. Fair enough.
Well, that's how you would do it. I'm not quite sure why that's not working, but yeah, you would tap this icon. Hear it would give you a sharing link, and then off you go. For whatever reason, my one is not working. I would have to have a look at that later on, but you get an idea. This is what they're talking about with the white board here. So we're gonna close that one, often. Come back to our
our presentation.
The final section that we're talking about here would be one notice this one right on the barre in here. So one note means the marks off. One note is a system that allows you to create almost like a sketchbook or, you know, a lotta type thing
where you can drop notes of any type, whether their screens, screen grabs,
drawn notes, written notes, whatever it might be into an application. And it's just kind of like a scrapbook. It allows you to keep things together. Maybe things you might, you know, ideas. You're working on that kind of thing. Unfortunately, don't have it installed on this machine.
It doesn't play a huge role in the fundamentals course, But should we dio further rolls on Go go into it in more detail. We can certainly show that off to you, but it's just something to be able aware off in the Microsoft environment. It's kind of like a scrapbook environment somewhere. You can take notes effectively
productivity wise in terms of the Windows operating system,
they give you a couple of things, you have timeline and you have cortana.
So let me see if I can bring up timeline here on. In fact, what I will do is I will switch over my display capture to show you what it looks like from one of my other screens because I think that's important to see on this environment here.
this will allow you to see it now
so he can see now these are you can see the earlier today I was working on a PowerPoint presentations. These are the things I have open at the moment. My files and folders and it just allows me to scroll back. I can see what I was doing yesterday on the 28th of May
and so on and so forth. You know, I could go right the way back. These are kind of my raw video files you can see.
And it last me to pull these files right up to where I am now.
All right, so that's timeline and where it comes into play.
All right, let's go back.
Teoh my other screen once more.
All right. Excellent. OK, so that's timeline for you. The other thing that we have is cortana. Now, Cortana is an ai
ai centric assistant. Kind of like Siri, if you've ever used the the iPhone equivalent where you can talk to her now, Cortana is still developing, and the latest version is gonna be coming out very soon. Actually has an ability for cortana to do things for you.
It can send e mail for you.
They can read you the weather. It can actually interact. The biggest thing that it will do now is that cortana can actually interact with your operating system. So if you've got your machine and it's running Windows 10
cortana will actually do think so. You can ask it so you can say Hey, send an email. So when it does, it says, Who is it going to? Who's the Who's the thing? You give it the email address the recipient say, Right, What's the subject? And then you can write the subject in
as well. You say right? You can actually talk to it and explain what you want the subject to be
and then the body of the message and it would just carry on. And then it will give you a review and say, Is this ready to go? Yes. And then you can send the message really, really smart systems that coming into play very, very shortly from the time Certainly from the time of this video. Possibly by the time you see this video, we might already have these things in position.
But this is effectively your voice assistant that's being built into the operating system. And that's where productivity comes into play
in this one
with endpoint management. So we've discussed endpoint manager a little bit. There are feature updates twice a year with the operating system, so it kind of allows people toe get the latest new shiny thing that comes to Windows 10 effectively. So every six months they bring out new features.
And then with security,
three key things hit in final closing Threat protection. Obviously Windows Defender You may have seen Windows Defender before. Windows Defender is actually now part off Windows 10. It's built into it. So if you don't have any extra anti virus software or anti malware, I should say,
then you're actually already covered. And I use this myself. I don't have 1/3 party product
that looks after my at my anti malware I use Windows. Defender has never let me down, Andi. It catches things fairly regularly for me, I would say so I'm not too worried there. And actually, I think Windows Defender is a very strong program in this day and age
identity access. So Windows Hello, Windows. Hello is if you've ever had any local pin environment where when you log onto a computer, it will ask you to type in a pin or likewise, if you've had any retina scans,
Um, if you've used a webcam so facial recognition,
anything along those lines, that's Windows. Hello, that's where you're using that Andi Itt's very good. It means that you don't have to type your password. What it's doing is it's actually
it's a local based security for your password being then your password, then being logged in automatically for you. Which means that if you have things like key loggers things out that they might get your pin. But if they can't physically get to your machine, the pin is useless because it only works on that machine.
So it's just another layer of security. And actually Microsoft recommend
using Windows hello, wherever possible on any device which I actually do. All my machines run windows hello on them
and then information protection or, in this case, Windows information protection. It was previously known as Enterprise Data Protection, so you may have seen e d. P.
That was the name of it before it became Whip on. This allows you to encrypt enterprise data on employee owned on corporate own devices.
You can also remotely wipe enterprise data off of managed computers, including employee owned computers, without affecting personal data. So it kind of if you've got your this is your storage area, you can split off a portion, say this is for work,
and then this is personal.
So when that person then you know, leaves the business, for example, you can then ask it to completely wipe out the work section or in some cases, even just, you know, in sorry. In all cases, remove that work section entirely. Onda. Allow this section to take control of it again and use the extra space.
you can also protect specific APs that can access enterprise data on bake Sure that they are clearly recognisable to employees on. You can also stop non protected APS from accessing enterprise data. So if there is an application that you don't want to be able to access a file,
you can stop it from doing that. You know, if you want all your files to be opened inward
and you someone tries to open in no pad because they want to, I don't know, get the raw data itself. You could just say I don't want no pad to be able to do it
so you could do that kind of thing with it. Now your employees won't have their work otherwise interrupted while switching between personal and then to price while these policies are in place, so it means that they won't have to sign in multiple times. It will do it all for you. And it's very
the guy behind it will seamlessly switch from work to personalize people, change between applications. So it's a very, very smart system indeed. And it makes it very easy for your workers to use their bring your own device environment in the corporate network.
All right, we're gonna stop our video there. We're gonna come back and discuss Microsoft 365 laps in the next video. So join me there. I'll see you soon.
