Second, Windows2008 moved to some settings after home

Windows 2008 is a server version of the operating system released by Microsoft

, although it is for the server released operating system, However, there are definitely some netizens who will try it out, but if you want to use Windows 2008 as a personal version of the operating system, you must configure the system first-class after installation. Otherwise, some designs are not needed for personal computers. Some are not suitable for personal computers when they are set by default.

I have chosen some of the more common things to talk about here, the installation will not say, Microsoft Windows installation is very simple.

If you have installed Win2008 and like the feeling of Vista, then install the VISTA theme, enable hardware acceleration, install powershell to get it: first open the server manager, click on the function on the right side of the function, The Select Features window pops up, select the desktop experience and Windows powershell, and then click Next, you will need to restart your computer to complete the installation.

We know that from win2000 to win2003, now win2008, when you log in, you must press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to enter. If you want to cancel this suitable server login, it is not suitable for individual users. If you want to do this, just do it: click on the desktop taskbar and click Start--Run. Enter gpedit.msc in the pop-up window. After entering gpedit.msc, click OK to open the Group Policy Editor. .

Expand in the left frame of the Group Policy Editor (<+” number in front of the point)-->Computer Configuration--"Windows Settings--"Security Settings--"Local Strategy, At this time, under the local policy, you can see "Security Options", click on "Security Options" and find "In the box on the right". Interactive Login: Do not press CTRL+ALT+DEL; right click “ Interactive Login: Do not press CTRL+ALT+DEL”, click “Attributes” in the pop-up menu, and click on the circle before “ Enabled” in the Properties tab to select it.

Confirm that “ is enabled ” after a small black dot in the front circle, click “OK”, then close the window. In this way, you don't have to press the “CTRL+ALT+DEL” key combination to log in when you start the computer later.

Starting from win2003, there are requirements for selecting the shutdown reason when shutting down. For the server, it is generally 24 hours a day, and it is generally not shut down all year round. It doesn't matter, it can also help record the shutdown. The reason, and individual users often have to shut down, it is useless, then how to close it? Please see: start running cgpedit.msc, computer configuration → management template → system → display shutdown event tracking & rarr; disable, so You can shut down directly.

The server version of the Windows operating system will also require a password to log in to the system when logging in. If you are using a personal computer without a password, then do this: gpedit.msc, computer configuration - WINDOWS Settings - Security Settings - Account Policies - Password Policies. In this path, find "The password must meet the complexity requirements" set to disable, “ password length minimum & rdquo; set to 0. This way you can create a user account with a blank password.

It seems that from the beginning of Win2003, IE will have a check on the security of the website. On the general server, it will not be used to browse the webpage. It is not necessary to check it occasionally, but if you install the server system personally, It is definitely necessary to go online, so this is annoying. You can let IE cancel the security check of the website by the following method:

1. Once the system opens the security prompt page, you can use "When the content of the website is blocked, continue to prompt" <; check the option

2. In the browsing interface, click the "Tools" menu item with the mouse, from the open drop-down menu Execute “Internet Options” command

3. In the pop-up option setting interface, you can set the highest security level in the system default state to medium level

4. When setting, Just drag the security slider to the "in" location in the "Security" tab page.

5. After completing the settings, click “OK” Button, you can secure browser page automatically prompts canceled.

In addition, in Win2008, the images in the folder can not display thumbnails. In fact, Win2008 itself has a built-in folder image thumbnail function, but the default selection is off, then we can open it like this: Select the folder and search options in the organization. In the pop-up window, select View, remove “ always display the icon, never show the thumbnail, check the checkmark, select “ display the file as a thumbnail The icon & rdquo; can be followed, in addition, click on the view to adjust the size of the icon or thumbnail.

Of course, I personally feel that there is no need for ordinary computers to use Win2008, but for those who are early adopters or particularly prefer the server version of Windows, I hope this article is useful for you.
