    I found all of the USB controllers had the "Power Management - Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power option enabled."   I am all for saving power but the option is still effectively: "turn off this device and allow nothing to awaken it, ever, under any circumstance short of reboot."   (For the life of me I can't understand why this option is still inoperable in Windows - it's been an issue for as long as USB has existed.)

    I've also modified the BIOS settings related to the TB16 and enabled all options.

    What the Dell system detect missed was need to download the Realtek USB GBE Ethernet Controller Driver, which I just installed today.   Fingers cross that this is the missing link...



    Awesome additions to the article Jack. Thank you for the feedback. Just checked my USB settings under Power Management and made the updates. Thank you!

  2. Great question Randy. My setup looks like this:

    1. TB16 Docking Station - Mini Display Port OUT to Monitor 1 DisplayPort IN (Yes, I have a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable)
    2. Monitor 1 - DisplayPort OUT to Monitor 2 DisplayPort IN

    Obviously, my setup is unusual in that I'm daisy chaining my monitors together. Most monitors don't have IN/OUT for DisplayPort. That said, the Dell TB16 Dock supports Mini-DisplayPort, DisplayPort, and HDMI. Being that Mini DisplayPort is just a miniature version of DisplayPort, my setup works flawlessly.

    Hope that helps you out!

    Please Send  All UPDATE Blogs Relating To UPGRADE TO WINDOWS  10  CREATOR UPDATE  With Limited SPACE

    @GMSR what's the issue? Are you out of drive space and can't upgrade? You might want to take a look at a drive mapping app like this one: https://www.groovypost.com/howto/map-hardrive-usage-find-hidden-files-windows-10-treesize-freeware/ to find and nuke files you don't need/want. Should help you with space issues.

  4. @Vadim Windows 10 by default denies local login for the GUEST account. You need to go into your GPEDIT and edit the local Group Policy on the box and allow the Guest account to login locally. 

    That said, there is still what appears to be a BUG where the Windows Explorer will crash when the Gues account tries to login. I mentioned that above.

    the GUEST account is broken with the dreaded "Shell Infrastructure has stopped working" bug.

    Microsoft will likely fix this issue soon. So for now, just create a new user, Call it Visitor, Drop it into the GUEST group, and you should be golden.

    I don't know about the rest of you but I find that a bit "demeaning" to make visitors use "Guest Account", though I am glad to see how to do that, but doesn't "Standard Account"

    really safeguard you enough anyway Steve?


    Well, the "User Right Assignments" specified for the Guest account under Windows 10 do make the Guest account a bit more restricted than the "Standard" account. For example, the Guest account is denied by default Accessing other Windows Computers from the Network. That said, it's really not much of a difference, to be honest. Standard accounts won't be able to access any files under other profiles or gain access to other sensitive system areas. Just don't make it a Admin. ;)

    My recommendation is to just create a Standard account called Visitor, throw on a PW if you want (perhaps one that matches your Guest WIFI SSID) and let it roll. Really, this is the best option for now being that even in the latest builds, the GUEST account is broken with the dreaded "Shell Infrastructure has stopped working" bug.
