Windows Lockscreen leaks Clipboard content

Go to locked Workstation...

- Press Win+ENTER: Start Narrator
- CapsLock+F1: Open Narrator Help
- Ctrl+V: hello Clipboard content

I recommend to disabling these features through the appropriate Group Policy settings, to avoid that someone could get a password that was copied to clipboard.

Windows 8.1 and 10 are affected.

Powershell: Set AD User "Name" with givenname and surname (it´s the Name that is displayed in ADUC)

Some guys mix up Name with Displayname. So with this command we will change the name you see in ADUC.

Get-aduser tbuntrock -Properties * | foreach { Rename-ADObject $_ -newname ($_.givenname + " " + $}

Powershell: Disable AD User from csv and append Description

The file should contain the samaccountnames and looks like:


$logfile = "C:\admin\VacationUsers.csv"
get-content $logfile |get-aduser -Properties Description | ForEach-Object { Set-ADUser $_ -enabled $false -Description "$($_.Description) DISABLED as requested by HR" }

How it works:
- Define file path
- Just get the users from csv
- Use get-aduser to get description
- do this for each user and...
- Set description

We keep the old Description with $($_.Description) and all that follows will be appended. In my example it is DISABLED as requested by HR.
