How to enable Flash Player on Windows Server 2016

Windows Server does not come with Flash Player installed or enabled by default. But it can be installed easily.

How to install Flash Player on Windows Server 2016

Setting the primary email address for Office 365 users with PowerShell

Setting the primary email address for Office 365 accounts is easy to do with PowerShell.

It is done with the Set-Mailbox cmdlet. The primary address is set by using “SMTP” in uppercase in the email address.

You do have to be slightly careful as using the Set-Mailbox cmdlet to change the primary address will remove all of the other aliases. So they must be included with the command if you have any.

I have made this process really easy for you (and myself). Enter the details of the mailbox you want to change below and it will generate the required Set-Mailbox command for you to copy and paste into a PowerShell session.

I have also included all the required PowerShell to connect to Office 365 and disconnect again.
