  1. Implement HSTS in ADFS

    According to Microsoft's documentation ADFS does not require HSTS because it uses HTTPS. ADFS is still vulnerable to insecure redirect and MITM from an insecure / untrusted network.

    On the first access over a non-secure network the browser sends a clear HTTP request. MITM intercepts this and responds as the endpoint and can now issue an insecure redirect to a malicious site OR proxy the real ADFS server to trick user into entering credentials etc.

    HSTS prevents the very first HTTP call from ever being sent. The browser instead only sends HTTPS and does not allow the user to bypass…

  2. Instead of continuos "Whats New..." at this page, you rather tell people why errors occurs in EventList dued by "Windows Hello.."-updates..

    Instead of this page`s "Whats new.." - you rather tell users why Windows 10, vers 1803 is not compatible for the update/grade "Windows Hello for Business" and therefore cause constantly errors in the EventList at every start of pc. And THIS is not new !

  4. Can you save a desktop connections configuration, etc.?

    Can we somehow save the configuration of all the RDs that takes awhile to set up 25 servers, VMs, etc. If we need a system rebuilt, I don't want to have to recreate from scratch.

  6. Basic Direct Access for Windows 10 PRO and home users.

    It appears a feature of Windows server 2012 Essentials R2 has been removed from windows 10 PRO and Home editions. It worked until the latest upgrade last week. Previous page on this site does not show it not available except the advanced version. It worked till last week. It did have similar issues earlier in the year.

  7. Suggession to imporve Active Directory

    There should be an Active Directory Object for main office and other/field locations, Members tab to add bulk users and a drop-down menu in every user account to simply choose which office do they belong to as well. Also, it would be awesome to have a drop-down menu for every user account to bind with domain-joined or non-domain joined PC.
    This makes Active Directory and User management way easier, System Administrators can also keep a track of assigned devices to every user, change the location details easily of course for bulk users by creating an office location object and adding…

  12. Add the ability to log certificate thumbprints to NPS authentications

    This would be very helpful for us to be able to monitor for devices using certificates that are close to expiring.

  13. Creating an Answer File XML

    o15-ctrremove.diagcab is the best Office removal tool for manually removing older Office versions. There seems to be no way to run it silently. You can run if by command line using msdt, but no /qn or /q or silentmode=1, or similar parameters. it gives the option for an answer file, but there is no information on how to set this up.

  16. Working automatic Removal of Entries in all Eventlogs after x days configured by GPOs

    We need a working solution to automatically remove all entries in all eventlogs, not only for system, app, security, after several days, regardless how big the eventlog is. The limit should be configured with GPOs for Win 10 and Server 2016. At the moment all solutions in the Internet are not really working or are very painful. It will became important with the data privacy laws to have an easy reliable way to configure this.

  17. Don't delete deactivated Inboxrules in Outlook

    If you have deactivated Inboxrules in Outlook your administrator cannot see the them. Also, if he changes one activated rule or create a new one, all the deactivated rules will be deleted.

  19. Wir brauchen einen Computer oder Laptop mit integriertem Drucker.

    Hallo liebes Microsoft Team
    Ich habe oft darüber nachgedacht was der Menschheit fehlt die Geschäftlich oder auch Privat oft unterwegs sind. Stellen Sie sich einmal vor jemand der beruflich oft Reist, nie an einem Punkt ist hat so gut wie immer sein Notebook oder Laptop dabei. Jetzt muss der jenige was ausdrucken, aber wo ? Wie währe die Idee mit einem Laptop mit integriertem Drucker.
    Oder ein ALL IN ONE Rechner mit integriertem Drucker. Vielleicht hat man nicht soviel Platz zuhause oder man will sich etwas kaufen wo alles mit drinnen ist.

    Ich würde mich über eure Meinung interessieren wie…

  20. Allow Ethernet Connections to be Metered

    Since only wifi connections can be metered it is not possible to control the application of updates. Anyone with an Ethernet connection to the internet can have long runs interrupted and days even weeks of work can be damaged. Allowing Ethernet connections to be metered should add a necessary degree of control.
