    • Microsoft Remote Desktop V10 for MAC keyboard changes when laptop sleeps and is brought back up

      On my Macbook Pro, since I installed the latest Microsoft Remote Desktop V10, if I put the Mac to sleep and come back, keystrokes change from normal keystrokes to function keys. For instance the "d" key, instead of typing a "d" now toggles the show desktop on and off. In order to get the keyboard back I have to "Sign off" the Remote Desktop and Sign back in. Is there a setting to fix this as this defeats the purpose of using a Remote Desktop to preserve something you are working on.

      Mac OS = High Sierra Version 10.13.6.

      Note…

                • Microsoft Remote Desktop is useless **** tool for end users.

                  Microsoft remote desktop is too hard to configure and you are restricted to controlling one end users computer no good in modern day world where access should be simple process between the host and receivers with only security being the main concern.

                  Add security feature can be pin code of 16 digit or password that the end user sets up.

                  Microsoft need to look at how team viewer is set up but without the restrict to 6 users it should be multiple use to a max of 10 device home users,

                      I have a 3TB HDD which has 746GB unalllocated because the software is not up to the task..
                      I am unable to extend the second last partition to the unallocated area next door to it.

                        • Give us a way to test ReFS corruption handling

                          How can we mimic a bit-rot scenario with a large file in order to see if ReFS detects the error? All attempts to change any bits using readily available tools are recognized as legitimate changes by the file system and the file checksum shows no error. How can we test?

                              Instead of managing reports for unused files or duplicate files on a per server basis, could we increase efficiency by having a single dashboard for the information.

                                  Many of your Windows users depend upon DISM repair so I suggest you revert to .WIM. .ESD can convert to .WIM but the level required to do so is above the majority of your users.
                                  Please escalate.

                                  • A new windows server (maybe also a new home os)

                                    It's already starting to come to the end of 2018. Halfway to 2019. It's time for a new OS everyone! May I introduce; WINDOWS PLATNIUM! This could have more software and updated software. Maybe VMware. For virtualization. A revamped command prompt. And as one user suggested- Windows Hello. Maybe someway to store files for people all around the world so they can access their files and their files only. Do I maybe sound a little crazy? You might think that. With a better OS- A better future.
