  1. RDP issues: applications sound transfer, screen stops updating

    Hello,
    I found a couple of issues with RDP work:
    1) Applications sound transfer. Some Win10Pro PCs (only few of many similar ones) have issue with transfere of applications sound. I can hear system sound check, but I can't hear any applications: players, browsers, etc. All settings allowed and correct, other PCs transfere all sounds.
    2) If I set all devices to transfer with RDP, transfered screen starts to freeze after some time of work. It happens every time. Screen stops updating, but RDP still works and I can click Remote Desktop, but i won't see what happens until I…

  2. Cursor - Black box

    Since the latest update, I've had issues with a black box coming surrounding my cursor. I've tried restarting the remote computer to no avail. It does it randomly and stays on for varying lengths of time. At times, there has been great mouse lag. The remote mouse driver is up to date in the configuration.

    Can this be improved?

  4. BUG with Set-ClusterLog -Size and the FailoverClustering_Diagnostic log

    Trying to set the cluster log size via Set-ClusterLog will cause the FailoverClustering_Diagnostic event log maximum size to balloon to 18014398507384832KB. That is 18014 PB!

    We have two separate Server 2019 Hyper-V Clusters that this affected. A MSFT employee on the Q&A site confirmed this also happened in her test environment.

  5. Task Scheduler cannot stop tasks since Server 2016

    The Option "Stop task if it runs longer than" under Triggers no longer kills the running task in Server 2016/2019.

    The same scheduled task that would be killed after the time set on the Trigger of the scheduled task in all Server version before Server 2012 R2 are not terminate on Server 2016/2019.

    I confirmed this with creating a basic task to run notepad and kill it after a minute in Server 2019 and upon execution task scheduler never kills notepad.
    This same job was exported to Server 2016 and it didn't work either. The XML was then imported to…

  9. fix the pop-up in Windows Admin Center for storage migration

    When selecting Storage Migration Service, a pop-up will always come up, no matter if you select the option to never show again. Also, the feedback link in there takes you nowhere.
    Now, we all know Microsoft tries to over achieve, but telling me the job is done over 100%... :)

  12. Resolution Cannot be adjusted under the native resolution of the phone I am using.

    I cannot adjust the resolution below 1920x 1080.
    I need to be able to adjust to lower resolutions as I have poor eyesight & everything is too small. I cannot see without straining my eyes.
    I need to be able to set it as low as 1024x768 or even 800x600

  15. Add file locking so when using DFS, it' locks files across shared systems, so two people cannot edit at once.

    Add file locking so when using Distributed File System, it' locks files across shared systems, so two people cannot edit at once.

    Currently two people can open the same file on two servers connected using DFS, and they both can edit the file. Bob can edit it for 2 days, and then Sarah can open it on the second for 30 minutes. Then Bob closes his, and Sarah closes hers, and all of Bob's 2 days of work gets wiped out.

    DFS has been around for... 8-10 years? Why has this not been fixed? Administrators have enough issues without having…

  16. Pasting image into Word 2016 & PowerPoint 2016 doesn't work

    I'm on my laptop, and I'm connected to my remote computer via Microsoft Remote Desktop from the Microsoft app store.


    1. I copy an image from PowerPoint 365 from my local laptop. I switch to PowerPoint 2016 on my remote computer. I paste the image into PowerPoint 2016 via CTRL-V. On the status bar in PowerPoint 2016, it says, "Press ESC key to cancel this operation." And it just sits there, even after 5 minutes. Result: No image is pasted on PowerPoint 2016.

    If I use rdcMan, the behavior above doesn't happen, and I'm able to paste.

    Please fix?

  17. Disk Management under a non-domain account cannot detach VHDs on network shares

    To reproduce:

    1) Run Disk Management as a user that both:
    - is a local admin, and
    - has domain credentials to access some network share

    2) "Attach VHD", choose a .vhdx file stored on a network share.

    3) Run Disk Management as a user that both:
    - is a local admin, and
    - does not have domain credentials

    4) Right-click the VHD's item in the Disk list, click "Detach VHD"

    Observe that a dialog pops up reporting the UNC path to the VHD file, which is of course already a bad sign.
    Click OK.
    Observe that an dialog pops…
