    • OneSyncSvc

      We support WS2016 for a few SMB's, with tightly controlled RDS environments for business-only applications. We understand One Sync being potentially useful in this environment. A recent update turned this service on by default. Sure we can fix it, but possibly from a a security aspect, minimising attack surface, yadayada, this may not be an optimal default.

          • 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…

              • 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)

                      • Create Different Icon Sizes

                        Dear Microsoft,

                        Would it be possible to include a feature which automatically changes the icon size of documents on the Windows desktop, or possibly throughout all of Windows?

                        This feature would increase or decrease the size of icons based on usage. For example, a file that hasn’t been accessed in six months would gradually increase/decrease in size, while a file that’s used every day would do the opposite. Preferable with customizable options such as time frames, increasing or decreasing size, ect.

                        This would allow a quick visual detection of which files are being used more frequently.

                        Thanking you in advance,

                            • Fix Remote Desktop URI scheme

                              Full Disclosure: I'm the guy who added the URI parsing and connection scheme in CoRD. That was a feature I wanted, so I baked it when I started contributing to the development of the app 10 years ago. https://github.com/dorianj/CoRD/wiki/Command-Line-Use

                              The Current URI scheme looks like it was written by interns with no supervision. Either your engineers completely ignored RFC 3986, or they thought they were more clever than they really are. Chief among the trespasses is the lack of ability to use the hostname/IP address baked into the scheme, requiring the use of the "full address" parameter, which for some…

                                  • Upgrade a server running core to the next version. Example 1709 to 1803

                                    Please post the methods to upgrade Short Term Service Branch Servers. If we are going to be living with these servers for less then 18 months we need to understand the methods for upgrades.

                                    • How to modify the default configuration of RDP?

                                      In default configuration, security was set to 'Warn me if authentication fails'. I want to set 'Always connect, even if authentication fails' as default. I found Default.rdp in RDC Connections folder but can not find 'security' setting.

                                        • enable rdp cookies in the android and Mac remote desktop clients

                                          The remote desktop client on Mac and Android doesn't send an rdp cookie containing the username - this makes load balancing on older rdp servers and gateways impossible since the user cannot be tracked.
