Exchange Admin Center language

Depending on your computer language settings, Exchange Admin Center can take those and open in a language you actually don't want to use.
You'll Google that this can be changed if administrator/ admin user has mailbox by openening OWA settings and changing Regional parameters.

But usually Admin user does not have mailbox or you don't want her/him to have it. You will search again and find that you can add mkt=en-US (as an example) to the URL of the Exchange Admin Center (https://yourexchangehostname/ecp?ExchClientVer=15&mkt=en-US)

Third option you have is opening Internet Explorer settings (I am using Windows 2016)


Click languagesClick Set Language Preferences

Add language you want to use by clicking Add language
Use Move up or Move Down options to put desired language on topClose Internet ExplorerOpen it again and login again to Exchange Admin Center

When you try to search from Safari address bar [Google] Safari freezes

I was using Apple Safari on Mac OS X Yosemite and later on El Capitan just fine when suddenly one day I couldn't search from Safari's address bar. My search engine provider was Google but even changing the provider in Safari's preferences did not resolve the problem. The text I entered stood there and nothing happened. It looked like Safari froze. Other browsers like Firefox and Chrome were working just fine, which was telling me it is not DNS at least network wise.

Then I found out Safari prefetches DNS. In terminal you just write:
defaults write com.apple.safari WebKitDNSPrefetchingEnabled -boolean false This command disables DNS prefetching. If this solves your problem then this is where you need to troubleshoot. Something in connection with your router and DNS is not OK.
