  1. allow UDP tracert because Verizon has done something with their network and your current Tracert only shows 2 hops.

    Currently Tracert only shows 2 hops on Verizon Fios networks. There were many more before they changed their settings. UDP traceroute on Linux and Unix have no problem. Change your tracert to allow configuration for UDP rather than ICMP. It's hard to use current tracert to determine what's wrong when most of the hops don't show up.

  3. Please provide a justify center option for task bar icons. widescreen monitors mean you have to go way to the left to select taskbar icon

    All the Data Center monitors are 32" or 38" inches wide. So when your having to select icons from the task bar at bottom of screen you always having to arrow all the way over to the left. If there were a justify center option for task bar icons then you could always drop straight down and select on of the 12 or 15 icons your always using.

  5. distribute a text editor with Powershell

    I just can't believe that Powershell doesn't have a default text editor...
    I mean something as simple as vi at least! This is ridiculous...

  7. Acentuação

    Ao usar teclados físicos com o cliente rdp para Android, tenho problema com a acentuação. Por exemplo: ao digitar ~ + a obtenho "~a" e não "ã".

    Lembrando que fora da sessão rdp os teclados funcionam perfeitamente com o Android

  14. BUG: Can't install OpenSSH Server On Off-net (air-gapped) machines. Need a downloadable version (hotfix?)

    I want OpenSSH server on my Windows 2019 machines. These are required to be air-gapped for security.

    There appears to be no way to download that feature for separate installation. All the instructions assume connectivity to Microsoft.com.

    Please provide a way to download the feature. (Note that obtaining this from non-MS sites, or compiling from source is prohibited by our government security representative.)

  18. WorkFolder

    Dear MS-Team,

    with implementing the new file on demand feature for OneDrive and Workfolder there is a very unpleasant problem with the Workfolder Feature. When using Workfolders with Windows 10 1803 and above no more thumbnails (Picture & Video) are displayed in the Windows Explorer. It would be great to fix that. Thanks a lot.
