Office365 constantly popping up Basic Authentication dialog instead of Two Factor

So if the tenant was created prior to the change of default, you must do it manually. Otherwise, Outlook will keep trying basic authentication despite you having enabled two factor authentication.To do this through the GUI you can go here: If you [...]

Force a BIOS update for power adapter or battery issues

There's a cool trick one of our techs recently used to force the BIOS update when you can’t use a power adapter or the battery. Basically, you can target the .exe in command prompt followed by /forceit.
