comment Windows 10 Quick Links - renaming them using mklink app
Sounds like you want to read up on links in general. Here is a brief article to start from then you can follow the links in it for more: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/…

comment How do I change which desktop my files are saved to with multiple monitors?
Well, to begin with, it is only one desktop. I suspect what you are asking is if there is a way to have it ask what location on the desktop it should display the icon at. If that is the case I suspect that it isn't possible but I don't know that definitively.

comment Windows 10 Quick Links - renaming them using mklink app
I'm not sure what you are asking exactly? Are you asking for specific directions on how to use the utility? Or are you asking for some sort of best practices regarding links and their creation in general?

comment Is there a way to ensure windows customize folder appears in a certain way on another computer?
If the program will be on a potentially random named drive then the only way to always launch it would be to have the all the possibilities in the path variable. That or have a startup script that searches all the drives for the program and changes the shortcut on the fly. Having said that, if you have to go to this extent, then your environment is stupid and you have bigger problems.

I'm not positive that I understand your question, but I suspect that you are looking for Relative Paths: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/…

comment Making google analytics pop up when not using the computers
Maybe you could go ahead and set up a good porn storm for them too while you are at it. Technology cannot solve social/behavioral problems and that is what this is.

comment Powershell script delivered via SCCM 2012 to fully remove Windows 8.1 apps
I know it may be a silly comment, but I will point out that if the machine is still in the SCCM collection to get that app, the app will just be reinstalled after it is removed.

You could do that in a batch with wmic, but powershell is way easier.

comment web browsers showing completely random images on web pages
If any of the machines are laptops, try going somewhere else and see if you get the same results. As long as the ISP is different where you try it at, you have functionally changed DNS servers that way to verify if the ISP is monkeying with it or not.

Do you have the same issue if you use a different DNS server rather than letting your ISP resolve names?

Corsair gives that line a 5 year warranty. That is as good a guess as you are likely to get. But it is still a guess...

comment Import Registry Hive
The answer will depend a little bit on your environment. Basically the way I do this typically is to remotely execute reg.exe /I <FILENAME>. How you remotely execute it depends on your environment. If you have remoting available on all the remote machines you can use Enter-PSSession. If not you could use a utility like pscexec.exe

comment External IP Address , in Windows Tools
I'm not positive what you mean by your external IP address, but if you mean the address that the rest of the internet sees, you won't be able to see that in windows as long as you are behind some appliance.

comment user\<myuser>\Deskop folder not showing all shorcuts from Desktop
This may be an XY problem. Why exactly do you care if it goes to the public desktop? What issue does it cause for you?
