  1. Explain the error "Щīńδǿωŝ Ĥ℮ℓℓò ƒòґ ßùśĩήėŝś ρгŏνіŝīőπĩńġ щīŀļ йŏτ вë łǻüŋ¢нεð."

    The "User Device Registration" section in Event Viewer gives somewhat concerning logs. These logs should be explained, assuming my system is not compromised. No other log is like this, it's only "Applications and Services Logs -> Microsoft -> Windows -> User Device Registration".

    For example:

    Щīńδǿωŝ Ĥ℮ℓℓò ƒòґ ßùśĩήėŝś ρгŏνіŝīőπĩńġ щīŀļ йŏτ вë łǻüŋ¢нεð.

  6. SSL / STARTTLS email notifications for File Server Resource Manager

    There doesn't appear to be any way to set up SSL/STARTTLS configuration for email notifications from File Server Resource Manager.

    Can this ability be added so that email can be securely sent?

  7. Control + Left click

    It would be nice if you could enable ctrl+left click as right click, the people (like me) who use a one buttom mouse the current way it works is a bit anoying.

  8. Windows Server 2016 Update Needs to be FIXED

    Unacceptable windows server 2016 updates will take 48 hours to complete. My Linux servers will update in 10 minutes of time. This slow update process is akin to taking 48 hours to fill gas tank on your car. FIX IT ALREADY.

  9. Show how you actually file a bug with Windows Server support cases.

    "If you find a bug with Windows Server please open a support case at https://support.microsoft.com and report it – these cases are free."

    If you go to the link suggested how exactly are you supposed to open a "free" support case for Windows Server bug reports. In the contact us chatbot, there isn't even an option for Windows server. If you select "view all Microsoft products" and select Windows Server it just takes you to the Windows Server docs. So please explain, step by step like I'm a 5 year old, how I'm supposed to report a Windows server bug.

  10. This is too Complex: "Deploy Windows Server Hybrid Cloud Print with Pre-Authentication"

    I'd like to join all of my on-premise machines to Azure AD (and remove them from the local domain). However, it is procedures such as this one that are incredibly complex to set up. I'd like to recommend that Azure engineers refine and simplify such a process as this.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/hybrid-cloud-print/hybrid-cloud-print-deploy

    The easier you make doing a task such as this one, the quicker folks like me will migrate users over to Azure. It should not be so difficult to implement something so basic such as accessing an on-premise printer (that's joined to a local domain) from AAD joined machine.

  11. Fix Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) Email Notifications support for SSL / STARTTLS

    Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) is able to send email notifications via an SMTP using Options / E-Mail Notifications.

    However at present it does not support STARTTLS or SSL - which means it is impossible to use directly with Office 365 or Gmail, it sends any authentication details in plain text, and the emails themselves are sent unencrypted. It's 2019 - can we get basic security support built into this product, please?

  13. A correct running Windows server should not have 1 or 2 Errors on the dashboard

    On a normal working Windows 2016 server I pretty much always have 1 or 2 errors on the Server manager dashboard. Those 2 errors pretty much always relate to 2 services that have no use on a server as they relate to user stuff like syncronising mail and maps.
    Could you either simply by default disable those 2 services on a server or make the server manager smarter by not reporting those 2 services not running as an error. By the way, the Sync_Host... service seems to appear and disappear at random.

  16. Significantly increase the number of Banned IPs that can be stored in ADFS.

    ADFS 2019 allows for 300 IPs to be added to the "Banned IP list"

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/identity/ad-fs/operations/configure-ad-fs-banned-ip#adding-banned-ips

    As there are nearly four billion public IPs on the internet, 300 is woefully inadequate.

    Small customers that are only trying to block a few users aren't likely using ADFS anyway. Large organizations that rely on ADFS will hit the 300 limit almost immediately.

    I'd like to see this number raised to 65538 (/16) or something similar.

  17. regedit address bar

    When is (did?) the regedit address bar coming (come) to Windows Server?

    It would be a big help navigating remote registries. We would save bandwidth and improve performance to go directly to a location in registry on our remote clients on slow networks, instead of slowly opening trees.

    Little bit small, adjust the window size sometime for rich info/setting situation.

    Windows Server 2008/2008R2

    Feels window/dialog size small, 720P, 1080i TV boardcasting era.

  20. UserVoice Microsoft Windows Server has a Copyright 2015 (and it feels like it)

    This website from UserVoice shows a copyright of 2015 with a blurry low resolution Microsoft logo and it certaainly feels like 2015. This site and the Remote Desktop Services ( https://remotedesktop.uservoice.com/forums/266795-remote-desktop-services-for-enterprises ) feel as if Microsoft has left Windows Server as forgotten product line.

    I know Microsoft has been forced to change gears to reconnect with the standard consumer, but what about the Windows Server specialist. Is this how we are going to improve Windows Server deployments?
