Microsoft updates are the most annoying updates on the market. However, there comes a time when you have to bite the bullet and upgrade in order to keep abreast of industry standards.
This computer tip of the day lets you know how to upgrade to Windows 10.
Upgrade While it is Free.
July 29, 2016 is the final day that Microsoft will offer the Windows 10 upgrade for free to those offices running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or Windows 8.1 Update. Make sure that you are upgrading to Pro or Enterprise and that you include the Windows Update for Business.
Turn Off the Keylogger.

Decide Whether You Need Azure Active Directory.
Azure Active Directory is a relatively decent option for businesses that have already transitioned into the cloud. Its implementation gives you access to thousands of SaaS applications in the cloud such as Concur, DropBox, Office365 and Salesforce.com.
However, you may not need Azure Active Directory if you are not transmitting data through the cloud. Implementation when you are not using the cloud in this capacity can complicate the user interface needlessly, slowing down your office productivity and basically putting a bunch of junk in the way of basic operations.
