  1. Windows Desktop client list of connections instead of icons

    In the Windows Desktop client (Remote Desktop for WVD), there appears to be a limit of 15 characters in a connection name before it gets truncated and ... is added. This causes names to be indistinguishable if they are long, and a primary descriptor is at the end. For example:
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-EastUS
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-WestUS
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-NorEuro
    CompanyName-Department-Dev-SouthEast
    etc...

    The only way to see the available connections is by icon. Add functionality in the Windows Desktop client for list view, and functionality to configure a default.

  2. import list of machines into remote desktop (windows store)

    In remote desktop connection manager you were able to import a list of servers to use. I would love to see that feature added to the remote desktop store app.

  6. Microsoft Edge deployed to Servers

    Can we have a Windows Update deploy Microsoft Edge to all servers? There are needs where currently Internet Explorer is used but IE will no longer be supported soon. I could manually install Edge on all servers but deploying though a Windows Update would be significantly easier.

    <Result>
    Family : 0
    IP Address : 0.0.0.0

    Add a configuration CSP policy in InTune to auto subscribe to feeds in windows virtual desktop. This will allow for a newly Autopiloted device to log in and have instance access to their WVD apps / desktops.

  10. Bring Back Message Analyzer

    Please bring back message analyzer. The 2014 version offers way more than just network traffic analysis and it's a brilliant tool for viewing event logs, log files, etc.

  11. More details on the proces itself.

    I would like to know more about the internals of the process. Such as, doing an analysis on the drive. Does it do any good or is it totally informational? Does it help with preventing fragmentation?

    Also, with the defragmentation itself, if time is short is it better to do a little at a time, run it to a percent of 'completed' first pass, or not to waste ones time.
    Explain what good defrag Analysis does. Is it informational only? Also, detailed explantion of the defrag process.

  14. Enable smart card support on the MS Store Remote Desktop app, PLEASE!

    Remote Desktop is one of the few Store apps I actually like. One of the corporate environments I work in uses RD Gateways and smart cards (SafeNet 5110 USB tokens) for authentication. I just discovered that the store app doesn't support smart cards :(
    Is support for them likely to be introduced in the near future?

  16. Ensure applications are up to date (ie. cms v10 is not responding).

    Upon log in to cms v10, user observed the application is only loading, and eventually not responding.

  18. ADFS Export/Import Relying Party Trusts

    Get-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust should export a completed powershell script for Add-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust, this will solve your import issue, and make it easy for people to migrate servers, or even automate relying party migrations.

  20. Make openSSH work without it being a science project

    Installed old copSSH, worked, installed Windows openSSH, didn't work. All sorts of people on internet saying "try this" or "try that". I need to do, not try. Windows should make it seamless, that's the power of Windows over Linux. You shouldn't need a masters degree in command line options to set.
