  1. Add support to multi language server core 2019 when running on containers

    Default servercore:1809 image came with en-US.

    I've described step by step how to reproduce lpksetup.exe error on container, producing crash report logs that I've extracted from container.
    All here: https://github.com/sanguedemonstro/docker-playground/issues/1#issuecomment-453078549

    With extra details here: https://github.com/sanguedemonstro/docker-playground/blob/master/langpack-on-servercore2019.md#why-am-i-playing-around-this-subject

    But I'm not able to understand logs or fix windows base image. And I can't open support ticket once I'm not MS partner.

    So if anyone could help I'm here to support.

  3. allow the ADFS service to start with bad certificate

    If the certificate does not auto-renew or auto-renew fails you are stuck!
    You can not run any powershell commands against adfs and you can not run the adfs manager because the service won't start so you are unable to resolve the issue and have to call Ms support.

  4. Add support for multiple monitors in Windows Remote Desktop

    With the old Remote Desktop Connection app, there was a display setting to "Use all my monitors for the remote session." This still works in that app, but I have been unable to find such a setting in this Windows Remote Desktop. I prefer to use this app because there are multiple machines I need to remote into and it's nice to be able to logically group them and whatnot, but there are times when I want to remote in and have that be my whole computer screen, and for that I have to use the older app, which sometimes…

  5. Cuando se usa un teclado físico, tanto bluetooth como por cable, los acentos no se colocan sobre las vocales sino que tienen es formato: 'a

    RDP en Android.
    Los acentos se colocan mal cuando se usa teclado físico. No parece problema de layout ya que las teclas coinciden con lo que se escribe.
    Además, la tecla de mayúsculas derecha, si se suelta antes de la letra, activa el caps look y sólo se desbloquea después de apretar caps look tres veces.
    Debe buscarse una solución rápida porque dificulta mucho el trabajo.

  6. Bring Back MultiPoint In Wake of COVID Pandemic to *Some* Server or Win 10 Pro SKU

    I feel this is a feature that barely missed the point where it would really take off. And especially with the COVID pandemic, you may want to have a few work desks share a really powerful system - each cubicle isolated with one system in the middle.

    I do hope Microsoft sees the potential with massive core counts today, and brings it back - those core counts really took off with Threadripper... right after this feature was ripped out.

    RDP and Azure don't help with rendering systems where 1-2 people at 4-5 desks might need to render at once, but…

  10. Robocopy - logging switch to log only errors or skipped files/folders

    I use Robocopy and hate parsing the logs for errors/skipped items. It would be really cool if there was a "log errors/skips only" switch! Or, even better, log errors/skips only to a 2nd log file in addition to the complete "normal" log file.

  11. klist sessions without exception would be nice: klist. errot: 0xc0000022/-1073741790

    klist sessions without exception would be nice:

    klist sessions result
    . error:0xc0000022/-1073741790

    yes. if I use an UAC shell this would not happen, but the idead of UAC is not my idea. Microsoft: If writing very secure and needed UAC programs, than test this idea.And this is not a remark for the programers, but for the MANAGER who get a bonus for the idea.

  14. Adjust notification size

    As a user (and not a dev) I find it highly annoying that I can't change the size of the notifications that pop up in the bottom right corner of my screen are huge.

    Also, the notification bar is ridiculously huge, especially on a 17 inch laptop screen.

    Please enable a way for ordinary end users without admin access to control the size of various windows, pop ups and notification bars.

  15. windows server seems great

    but very complicated for elderly and not english speaking persons to understand and realize. Would be a very good idea, mobilizing the elder generation to enhance their internet skills with multilingual and knowledgeable supports. I guess that RDS gives lot of opportunities to create a big future (for all of us)

  16. What is an easy way to connect By Remote desktop from one PC to another

    Dear Satyan,

    Just need instructions to connect to another Pc using Remote desktop by using the IP address since the computers are far away from each other.

    Vaishali from your support center tried to help but was not successful. She gave me the Windows support number and Ajay Singh tried to help but could not do it.

    Why doesn't Microsoft have a simple way or instructions where we can connect one Windows PC to another using IP address. I also upgraded one of the computers to from home to PRO edition and spent $99.00. Micrsoft team should study TeamViewer and…

  17. Typo in the PowerShell cmd shown at the end of IPAM provisioning wizard

    On the completion page of the "Provisioning IPAM" wizard, there is a typo in the PowerShell command used to create the GPOs. It reads "Invoke-IpamGpoProvisiong".

    Also, I would like to suggest that the wizard detect conflicting roles and features before IPAM is installed. For example, if the machine you're installing IPAM on is a domain controller or a DHCP server, it will warn you of these issues before you install the IPAM feature.
