  2. Remove insecure protocols from builtin VPN/Wifi

    Default VPN/WiFi settings shouldn't allow insecure connections, nor allow users to override acceptable CAs for a connection without the user acknowledging that what they're doing is very risky.

  3. Wrong Pg info displayed in MS Word.

    Ever since I’ve moved to the Skip Ahead builds (10.0.18214.1000 & the earlier one), MS-Word is reporting incorrect page # for the doc.

    Here in page # reflected for Current & Total pages is incorrect.

  5. please implement a seperation of architectures in WSUS for Itanium and ARM64

    There is no way to keep ARM64 and Itanium updates out of WSUS because one can only choose between x86 and x64 updates but there is no limitation to other architectures that do not belong to classic Intel or AMD64 architectures just like Itanium and ARM64. These should be filtered in WSUS as a seperate category.

  7. unable to change WINS Server IP Binding in Windows Server 2016.

    Unable to change WINS Server, IP Binding in Windows Server 2016. In the MMC of WINS Server, you can see an IP Address which suggests that the WINS Service is only listing on this Network Adapter. Even you change the Network Adapter metric, the IP will be not changed in the WINS MMC Gui. It's only changing, if you disable the used interface. With a netstate you can see that the WINS Service is listening on all Interfaces. This is confusing

  10. Finally, please describe for each executable (standalone & services) it's necessity to access the Internet

    This is a security issue.

    Hello

    It's really strange that we use operating systems which do not describe its executables and their eligibility to access the internet.

    If we monitor which programms access the internet on a Windows Machine, then we really often have to google for its executable name and just get informations like "we do'nt know what it does, but it is probably safe to allow internet access".

    Therefore, please:
    1) Finally, create a professional application & service architecture. No, to route everything over svchost.exe is not a secure design. Not at all.

    2) Finally, create a datasheet…

  14. Server 2019 - ALT-F4 - bring back the shutdown/logoff dialog box

    Historically, ALT-F4 will close out your windows...and if you were at the desktop, it would nicely bring up a dialog box asking if you'd like to sign-out or shutdown/reboot, etc. That is gone it seems...except for the built-in administrator. This leads to accidental logouts and closing of sessions that may have been active, etc. From what I've seen, MS has stated this is "by design" and needs to go to the forum to restore sanity. Seems odd it exists for one type of account and not able to be enabled for others. Regardless....bring back the logoff/shutdown dialog box please, or…

  16. Enable the selection of the issuer claim per OpenID relying party

    AD FS publishes two different issuer values in the public https://<domain>/adfs/.well-known/openid-configuration : One is called 'issuer' the other is 'accesstokenissuer' - the accesstokenissuer is optional in the standard. The value that is issued in the access token iss claim is always the 'accesstokenissuer' some clients (.Net ones) validate the access token against the 'accesstokenissuer' others (using open source libraries) will only validate against the 'issuer'
    It would be great if I could select per relying party which value is returned in the access token iss claim.

  18. Add-WindowsCapability -online does not work if no internet or behind an enterprise firewall

    I want to install OpenSSH server using this command:
    Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name OpenSSH.Server~~~~0.0.1.0

    It cannot be done without internet access or behind a company firewall, even with full standard internet access.

    We should be able to download some kind of package to solve this.

  19. Windows server images should not install deskop services such as Maps, One sync

    Windows server should have the option to NOT install desktop services which are very unlikely to be used in a corporate environment these include Maps, Onsync, and XBox. Not only do they appear to be unnecessary they cause false positives with system monitoring software.

  20. Issue on Windows10 Pro as RDP listener - internal error occurred

    Hello,

    I want to report one issue that is easy to reproduce, it occurs with any rdp client that connects to Windows10 Pro with enabled RDP connections, actually used mstsc.exe to connect from one Windows10 pro machine to another Windows10 pro machine with enabled RDP.

    After ~100 tries to restore interrupted connection the server refuses future rdp connection tries with internal error occurred message reported by mstsc.exe.

    It doesn't matter if you have logged off the session during running, as example did 20 connection restorings then logged off, logged in and did next 80 connection restorings, that was only example,…
