  4. RDS in 2016 looks awfully complicated ...it certainly isn't Citrix

    I have just reviewed the setup for RDS, it looks horribly complex...it certainly does not look like the easy setup with Citrix... Where are wizards? Where are even examples to show who you do things like present apps to desktops?

  10. Group Policy > Preferences > Files > Action: Update

    It's a shame that until today that group policy setting doesn't let us update the file based on the "LastWriteTime" attribute.
    I have seen a lot of complains about that misunderstood setting.
    Please consider on changing the action or to add a new one, that will help so many admins ou there!

  11. No gold for free games

    This isn't necessarily for windows, actually its for the Xbox one. I think that making people pay for Xbox live gold for free games isn't the best idea, honestly I believe that making people do this would draw people towards other console that have paid online services but still allow you play free games for free. This is done both on the Nintendo switch and the PS4. Thank you for taking out of your time to read this, and I hope you implement this onto the console in an update.

  12. Scroll to Change The Wall

    Nothing..lets give scroll up down button of mouse a work to change the desktop wallpaper if the user keeps on scrolling. The user can make a collection of wallpapers assigning each wallpaper a mood or can keep group of wallpapers in a different package of different moods..i think you are getting it what i mean, And then he dont need to always go through setting to change the wallpaper he just need to scroll up or down using mouse.

  15. make it more intuitive. For normal everyday users. I know of many new Apple users who have been using PC's for years have given up on Apple

    make it more intuitive for normal everyday users. I know of many new Apple users who have been using PC's for years have given up on Apple because of the confusing operating system. You need feedback from regular users, not nerds ! Make Siri more useful - not only to suggest answers but to provide solutions as well.

  16. LPD on Windows Server 2016

    If there is no LPD what is alternative to this?

    LPD helps for remote printing:

    User Computer->Print Server->Another Print Server (with LPD Service listening on port 515 for incoming requests)->Printer

    In above architecture assume "Another Print Server (with LPD Service listening on port 515 for incoming requests)" cannot be removed from architecture?

    Without LPD how do I achieve the above?

  17. missing primary boot drive

    Primary boot drive failed in win10. Doesn't appear when using diskpart list volumes. 2nd drive (d) appears as C: drive. Believe partitions damaged or lost and if fixed could see the original boot disk C: again. Booted from a USB to get CMd line. But need instructions how to launch disk MGMT.msc. commands I would normally use in powershell or on server not working on win 10 pro on laptop. It is difficult to find instructions on how to get control panel, disk mgt, network etc launched from CMD.
