  1. 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…

  10. Please finally stop the reorganization of application windows just because a Monitor is switched off to safe energy

    Hello

    Our users no longer use the power-saving features of the monitors just because Windows then starts to reorganize the application windows and moves them to monitors that are not yet turned off.

    Of course, Microsoft is not even able to restore the application windows exactly to their original position when the monitors are switched on again - which is a real shame, because the problem is trivial! therefore the request:

    Therefore: please allow your customers to disable this automatic reorganization of application windows if Monitors are switched off.
    This should be doable even for M$ which usually ignores usability…

  11. Single Backup of VM's with Off State

    How about adding a new Boolean attribute to VM's to record whether it has been backed up by the VM host's Backup Server since it enter the "Off" state thus eliminating the need to back it up again. The Backup Server would set the attribute state to "Yes" once it has been backed up in the "Off" state. Once the VM enters the "Running" state the attribute would be reset to "No".

  12. Multi copy

    My idea is to be able to apply short cuts to anything you copy, this way you won't have to copy a text like a username, paste it and then go back to copy your other details to login or signup somewhere on the internet.
    The shortcuts should be like (ctrl+c+1) for your first item you want to copy and (ctrl+c+2) for your second item you want to copy. For pasting it is basically the same but instead of (ctrl+c+the number you want to assign) it should be (crtl+v+the number you want to assign) example:(ctl+v+1 or crtl+v+2)

  14. Make Windows Deployment Server stop breaking on updates

    Every time there is a major 6-month update for Windows Server 2016, my Windows Deployment Server will break and we will not be able to image computers without a complete re-install of Windows Server.

  17. There is a bug in DfsrHelper.dll

    If a Powershell script creates a DFSR RG and invokes the CmdLet "Set-DfsrMembership" multiple times to add several member servers then there is a high probability that the CmdLet will fail.
    I have a PowerShell script than creates a new DFSR RG, adds the local server and a folder, then calls the above CmdLet.
    if the script is run in a loop (deleting the RG between iterations) then the script will fail after 2 - 5 loops.

    I've used .NET Reflector to debug the DfsrPowershell, DfsObjectModel and DfsrHelper DLL's and I found that the error is as follows:
    Set-DfsrManagement attempts…

  19. My Feedback

    Why do none of my 3rd party programs ( I do not embrace this newspeak nowadays termed apps) respond the way they used to?
    From games that can no longer be saved or deleted, to basic utilities such as 7 zip & Ccleaner which have greyed out options when selecting open with.
    On my system I am the sole user/administrator & find many of the intricacies of pertaining every windows update 10 very confusing. Is there a "blanket" approach where I can permit all installed programs the rights to function normally?
    Cheers T.C..
