Placing a password on your computer prevents others from gaining easy access to that computer. While there are ways of getting around a simple username and password, these methods are not simple for the average person. Sometimes when people purchase a new computer, they do not utilize a password to secure their computer. This could be because they are the only person that has physical access to that computer, or because they can’t come up with a password at the time of setup.

Some users that made the switch to SharePoint Online may have noticed that they are unable to use Explorer View for their Document Libraries. Currently SharePoint Online Explorer View does not work with other web browsers except Internet Explorer. If you are using Internet Explorer, try reviewing the following Microsoft article:

In some cases, the hotfix applied in the article will fix the problem. In my case, I needed to install the hotfix and add the SharePoint Online site to the trusted sites.

Obviously, all of this requires you to be logged in, and with the appropriate access. This should always be the first thing you check when issues arise.

The reason some people chose to sync is to have the file available offline. Obviously as an administrator there are some very important uses for syncing files. When I did the transistion from a on site hosted SharePoint to the cloud based SharePoint, the ability to sync files make life easier. Office 365 has built in tools to follow and sync. Once you load One Drive for Business, you can then select the desired pages in SharePoint. You then can just drag drop on SharePoint.

I received an email the other day from a user that just recently added his Office365 email account into Outlook on the desktop, but only a few of the his contacts show up.  Is there a way to transfer all the contacts over?

I am typing out this latest blog on my new Lenovo MIIX 2-8, which is running the new Windows 8.1 OS. So far this thing feels solid. I just had to mention some of the fun I've had the last two days with Internet Explorer 10 and 11, and I figured that I would break in the new tablet as well.



One clients has their users use Remote Sites so that they can easily access services in other facilities. I like Remote Sites because each user is presented with a customized view based on their user permissions within that domain. One of the things I noticed is that it does not play well with IE10 or 11.

It has come to my attention that Office 365 Exchange Plan 2 does not send out notifications when passwords are due to expire. This is not an issue for users that only access their email via the web, since the Outlook Web App will prompt you via a pop up notification. These notifications are important to users that access email via other methods.

One of many things that I found useful is exporting and importing a DHCP database. I'm sure there are so many uses for exporting and importing a DHCP database. It can be simply needing to as a backup , or to move the DHCP role from a 2003 server to a 2008 R2 server. You can reference the Microsoft link below for a detailed version on how to do this.
