OpenSSH Windows 10

Install SSH on Windows 10 as Optional Feature

On Windows 10 you have already a couple of options to run SSH commands. You can use for example the PowerShell Module Posh-SSH or use the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) or use third party tools like PuTTY.

Today my colleague Raphael Burri from itnetX mentioned that with the latest Windows 10 release, the Fall Creators Update (10.0.16299), there is another option to use SSH on Windows 10. It looks like you can now install a beta version of OpenSSH on Windows 10 as an optional feature.

Just go to the Settings App > Apps > Settings & Apps > Manage Optional Features > Add Feature and select the OpenSSH Client Beta and as you can see, you also have OpenSSH Server (Beta) available.

After installing the optional feature OpenSSH Client, you can now use the SSH client from PowerShell or the Command Prompt

It is great to see Microsoft integrating even more options for SSH on Windows 10.



Windows 10 Task View

The best Windows 10 Features – Why you will love Windows 10

Since the first release of the Windows 10 Preview in the Insider program, I was using the Technical previews on my Surface Pro 3, and it is great how Microsoft is improving Windows 10 over the last several months based on research and feedback from the Windows Insider program.

In some days, at July 29, Microsoft will release Windows 10 to the public, and here are some reasons why you will love Windows 10:

Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge Browser

With Windows 10 Microsoft released a new browser called Microsoft Edge (before Project Spartan) which is amazing fast and brings a lot of new features to the table such as Cortana Integration, Web notes which allow you basically draw your notes on websites and share them and Microsoft also promised to allow browser extensions. Secret: you can also switch from a Light Theme to a Dark Theme.

Task View & Virtual Desktop

Windows 10 Task View

Most of the IT Pros reading this blog already knew about Task view in previous version of Windows using WIN + TAB, but only a few other users did know about this features. Microsoft not only improved the Task view, Microsoft also promoted it much better  with an icon in the Taskbar.

In Windows 10 WIN + TAB does not only offer you Task View it also allows you to create and switch between Virtual Desktops. With Virtual Desktops you can now finally create multiple workspaces on your PC, which should bring you the productivity boost you need. Secret: You can switch between different Desktops using the Shortcut: CTRL + WIN + ARROW (LEFT and RIGHT).

Hyper-V

Hyper-V vNext Runtime Memory Resize

Microsoft build Hyper-V directly into the Windows Client since Windows 8. This is great if you want to run Virtual Machines on your Windows Client. Windows 10 Client Hyper-V brings you the great performance and features Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V will bring you. Of course some features are only available in the server build of Hyper-V, but you get some great features such as Enhanced Session mode to copy & past between your PC and your Virtual Machine. Secret: Windows 10 will allow you to run Hyper-V and use Connected Standby at the same time.
