GPO : Hide Image Thumbnail on Network Drive

To turn off the thumbnail preview in Windows Explorer on network drives use the GPO:

 

"User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer\Turn off the caching of thumbnails in hidden thumbs.db files"

and

"User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer\Turn off the caching of thumbnails and only display icons on network folders"

HP Printer Firmware Update : Windows Print Server

I was needing to update the firmware on an HP P3015 Laserjet printer and the “Firmware Update” utility on the web interface was failing.

 

The solution that I found was to simply copy the firmware update binary file to the printer via it’s UNC share name from the print server!

copy /b <firmware file> \\SERVER\PrinterShareName

 

This did the job perfectly!
