Follow the instructions below to install and configure Windows 10, taking screenshots to

document your work as you go. Once you have completed these tasks, follow the

UMGC’s agreement with VMware, you can download VMware Workstation for free. Ask

your instructor for access to VMware.

Note: It is not necessary to include screenshots of installing the hypervisor software.

Part 2: Configuration

You must take screenshots of each of the following activities (more than one screenshot

many be needed to demonstrate some of the commands).

You should include a screenshot for each step in your proof-of-concept document.

1. Change the name of the computer to yourfirstInitialLastName-PC (i.e., jsmith-PC)

2. Change the desktop theme and take a screenshot. Include the current date and time

in the taskbar.

3. Use PowerShell to create a local user account called yourFirstInitialLastName (i.e.,

jsmith)

4. Use PowerShell to create a local group account called Tetraaccounting

5. Use PowerShell to add the user created in Step 3 to the Tetra Shillings Accounting

local group.

6. Use Local Group Policy to create a password policy. The policy should be based on

best practices.

7. Create a folder called Tetra on the root of the C Drive. Assign the Tetra Shillings

Accounting read/write access to the folder.

8. Using the Tetra folder that you created in step 7, show that the members in the

Tetra Shillings Accounting group have read/write permissions to the folder over the

network.

9. Configure Windows Firewall to block inbound ICMPv4. This may require research.
