  3. RSAT on Windows 10 2004

    We have search the Web and cannot install RSAT on this OS. nothing works. even after tearing holes in our security , we have fiddled and broken WSUS. and still we cannot get the RSAT tools installed.
    We have the stand alone installer, we have tried the option feature approach. It simply will not install because we have a WSUS server. The end game over thats all folk, go back Windows 10 1809 so that you can work.

  4. Disk Management under a non-domain account cannot detach VHDs on network shares

    To reproduce:

    1) Run Disk Management as a user that both:
    - is a local admin, and
    - has domain credentials to access some network share

    2) "Attach VHD", choose a .vhdx file stored on a network share.

    3) Run Disk Management as a user that both:
    - is a local admin, and
    - does not have domain credentials

    4) Right-click the VHD's item in the Disk list, click "Detach VHD"

    Observe that a dialog pops up reporting the UNC path to the VHD file, which is of course already a bad sign.
    Click OK.
    Observe that an dialog pops…

  6. Please make Windows Server compliant with containers, otherwise the OS is useless

    legacy systems needs to go to cloud

    .NET and Win32 softwares will be around for long time, for sure..

    why container? 1nd

    Large systems with decades of code written, composed by 3rd party components can not be changed right away. So containerizing monoliths, are one important step on the jorney to the cloud

    why container? 2st

    I'm newbie, but as far as I know, the whole thing about containers is ship it as image once and run it everywhere, with environment isolation and integrity.. right?!

    the issue

    There is no way to properly set globalization settings like Time Zone,…

  8. fix the pop-up in Windows Admin Center for storage migration

    When selecting Storage Migration Service, a pop-up will always come up, no matter if you select the option to never show again. Also, the feedback link in there takes you nowhere.
    Now, we all know Microsoft tries to over achieve, but telling me the job is done over 100%... :)

  12. Resolution Cannot be adjusted under the native resolution of the phone I am using.

    I cannot adjust the resolution below 1920x 1080.
    I need to be able to adjust to lower resolutions as I have poor eyesight & everything is too small. I cannot see without straining my eyes.
    I need to be able to set it as low as 1024x768 or even 800x600

  15. Add file locking so when using DFS, it' locks files across shared systems, so two people cannot edit at once.

    Add file locking so when using Distributed File System, it' locks files across shared systems, so two people cannot edit at once.

    Currently two people can open the same file on two servers connected using DFS, and they both can edit the file. Bob can edit it for 2 days, and then Sarah can open it on the second for 30 minutes. Then Bob closes his, and Sarah closes hers, and all of Bob's 2 days of work gets wiped out.

    DFS has been around for... 8-10 years? Why has this not been fixed? Administrators have enough issues without having…

  16. Pasting image into Word 2016 & PowerPoint 2016 doesn't work

    I'm on my laptop, and I'm connected to my remote computer via Microsoft Remote Desktop from the Microsoft app store.


    1. I copy an image from PowerPoint 365 from my local laptop. I switch to PowerPoint 2016 on my remote computer. I paste the image into PowerPoint 2016 via CTRL-V. On the status bar in PowerPoint 2016, it says, "Press ESC key to cancel this operation." And it just sits there, even after 5 minutes. Result: No image is pasted on PowerPoint 2016.

    If I use rdcMan, the behavior above doesn't happen, and I'm able to paste.

    Please fix?
