Answer: C Explanation:
Simple Questions: What are Network Locations in Windows 7 amp; Windows 8?
Network Locations in Windows 8: Private vs Public
Windows 8 further simplifies the concept of network locations, reducing them to only two choices:
Private network – This profile should be applied to your home network or to the network from your workplace. When this profile is assigned to a network connection, network discovery is turned on, file and printer sharing are turned on and homegroup connections are allowed.
Public network – This profile is also named Guest. It is the more secure of the two because network discovery is turned off as well as file and printer sharing. This profile should be used when connecting to public networks you don’t trust, like those found in airports, coffee shops, bars, hotels, etc.
There#39;s also a third network location profile named Domain network. This one cannot be set by a normal user. It is available for enterprise workplaces and it is set by the network administrator. The settings applied to this profile are those set by your company and you cannot change them.

Let#39;s get back to the Networks list: right click or press and hold your active network connection. A menu is displayed with several options, depending on the network type.
Click or tap quot;Turn sharing on or offquot; (the only option common to both wired and wireless networks). For wired networks you will see less options being displayed din the contextual menu.
You are asked if you want to turn on sharing between PCs and connect to devices on this network.
Selecting quot;No, don’t turn on sharing or connect to devicesquot; is the equivalent of applying the Public profile. Selecting quot;Yes, turn on sharing and connect to devicesquot; is the equivalent of applying the Private profile.
Make your choice and the appropriate settings are applied.

Metered Internet connections: FAQ
What#39;s a metered Internet connection?
Internet service providers can charge by the amount of data used (the amount of data sent and received by your PC). That#39;s called a metered Internet connection. These plans often have a data limit, and if you exceed the limit you might have to pay extra. In some cases, you aren#39;t charged extra but your connection speed becomes slower until the billing cycle ends.
If you have a metered Internet connection, setting your network connection to metered in Windows can help you reduce the amount of data you send and receive.
How does setting my network connection to metered affect my PC?
Any app that relies on an Internet connection to update or display info might be limited in the amount of data it can download or display. You might notice these and other effects: Windows Update will only download priority updates.
Setting a Wireless network to METERED allows only critical Windows Updates using that connection.
Setting a Wireless network to NON-METERED allows all Windows Updates using that connection.

A company has Windows 8.1 client computers. A user stores files in multiple locations.
You need to determine which of the locations will be included in File History.
Which three of the following file locations are included in File History? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose three.)
Public Documents and Public Pictures
Contacts, Desktop, and Favorites
All system files
C:\Users and C:\ProgramData
My Documents and My Pictures
Desktop and Recycle Bin
Explanation: * File History has a predefined set of items that it backs up automatically: all your libraries (both default libraries and custom libraries you created), the Desktop, your Contacts, Internet Explorer favorites and the SkyDrive.
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2012/07/10/protecting-user-files-with-file-history.aspx Protecting user files with File History
File History is a backup application that continuously protects your personal files stored in Libraries, Desktop, Favorites, and Contacts folders. It periodically (by default every hour) scans the file system for changes and copies changed files to another location. Every time any of your personal files has changed, its copy will be stored on a dedicated, external storage device selected by you. Over time, File History builds a complete history of changes made to any personal file.
It’s a feature introduced in Windows 8 that offers a new way to protect files for consumers. It supersedes the existing Windows Backup and Restore features of Windows 7.
File History only saves copies of files that are in your libraries, contacts, favorites, and on your desktop. If you have folders elsewhere that you want backed up, you can add them to one of your existing libraries or create a new library.
Back Up Your Computer with Windows 8 File History
File History backs up everything in your libraries: Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos, as well as the Public folders. That#39;s natural because that#39;s where you store your files.

You administer Windows 8.1 Enterprise client computers in your company network.
You need to prevent users from installing applications published by a specific publisher in Windows Store.
Which type of AppLocker rule should you create?
Answer: A Explanation:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831350.aspx Packaged Apps and Packaged App Installer Rules in AppLocker
Commonly known as Windows apps, packaged apps can be installed through the Microsoft AppStore or can be side loaded using the Windows PowerShell cmdlets if you have an Enterprise license. Packaged apps can be installed by a standard user unlike some desktop applications that sometimes require administrative privileges for installation. In this topic, desktop applications refer to Win32 apps that run on the classic user desktop.
In Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8, AppLocker enforces rules for packaged apps separately from desktop applications. A single AppLocker rule for a packaged app can control both the installation and the running of an app. Because all packaged apps are signed, AppLocker supports only publisher rules for packaged apps. A publisher rule for a packaged app is based on the following attributes of the app:
Package name Package version
How manage Published (a.k.a Metro) Apps in Windows 8 using Group Policy
Windows 8 is coming REALLY SOON and of course one of the big new things to computer with that is the new (Metro) Packaged Apps that run in the start screen. However these apps are very different and do not install like traditional apps to a path or have a true “executable” file to launch the program. Of course enterprises need a way to control these packaged apps and therefore Microsoft has added a new feature Packaged Apps option to the AppLocker feature.
An administrator can use this feature to only allow certain apps to download from the Windows App Store and/or use it to control what inbuilt Packaged Apps are allowed to run.

Question No: 150 – (Topic 2)
A company has a main office and several branch offices. The company has an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain. All client computers run Windows 8.1. All printers are deployed to all client computers by using Group Policy.
When a user attempts to print from his portable client computer while at a branch office, the main office printer is set as his default printer.
You need to ensure that a location-specific default printer for each branch office is set for the user.
What should you do?
Create a Group Policy object (GPO) that enables the Computer location policy setting.
In the Manage Default Printers dialog box, select the Always use the same printer as my default printer option.
In the Manage Default Printers dialog box, select the Change my default printer when I change networks option.
Create a Group Policy object (GPO) that enables the Allow Print Spooler to accept client connections policy setting.
Answer: C Explanation:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/set-change-your-default-printer Set or change your default printer
To set a different default printer for each network
Tap or click any printer, and then tap or click Manage default printers.
Select Change my default printer when I change networks.
Under Select network, choose the first network you want to set a printer for.
Under Select printer, choose the printer you want to be the default on that network, and then tap or click Add.
When you#39;re finished setting a default printer for each network, tap or click OK.
configure location-aware printing
Location-aware printing is not a new feature, it existed already in Windows 7, it works that your default printer follows you, so at work you can have one default printer and another at home without manually switching.
Just click on an installed printer in control panel and select Manage default printers.
Be sure Change my default printer when I change Networks is selected and then manage per network which printer you want to be default.
Location-Aware Printing is dependent upon the Network List Service and the Network Location Awareness service. If either one of these services are stopped or malfunctioning, then Windows will not be able to detect network changes and may not switch default printers as expected
