  3. Can we get the text about the required Office version to be updated to include the new syntax for the M365 version? It is very confusing

    Can we get the text about the required Office version to be updated to include the new syntax for the M365 version? It is very confusing because the version/build numbering is different for the M365 click-to-run software than Office 2016 ProPlus. The document I am referring to is:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/identity/ad-fs/operations/configuring-alternate-login-id#hybrid-modern-authentication-with-alternate-id

  4. Add GUI management option for GPU DDA in Hyper-V Manager

    Hyper-V Manager does not have a GUI way to add DDA GPUs or manage them. This is really annoying and unnecessary

  5. Version 10 for Mac needs improvement

    Version 10 is not as responsive as Version 8 for Mac. Scrolling with the mouse is painfully slow. Screen resolution is poor on Version 10. I used Version 10 for about an hour, tried to adjust the settings to improve response times and resolution, but gained nothing.

  8. Kindly fix these problems: 'doskey /listsize' has no effect in Windows 10. Also, 'doskey /reinstall' terminates the command prompt session.

  9. Need clarification on "Configure browsers to use Windows Integrated Authentication (WIA) with AD FS"

    I am facing an issue where I have enabled the SSO with ADFS . I am able to do sso login from Mozila and Chrome but IE 11 is not letting me logged in with sso. IE keep asking for credentials so many times(ADFS LDAP user's credentials) and failing . From this doc I have tried to configure the browser to use WIA by configuring the AD FS property WiaSupportedUserAgents to add the required values based on the browsers. But still I am facing the same issue. as checked in the below command I can see that IE 11 is…

  12. Cmd fails to restore window title after nested batch file

    Normally when you run a batch file or other program from the command prompt the title of the console window changes to include the name of the batch file while it's running, such as "Command Prompt - testbatch".

    But after it runs the following batch file (testbatch.bat which chains to testbatch2.bat) it never changes it back, even though it has run to completion. So if you run it three times you end up with "Command Prompt - testbatch - testbatch - testbatch" as the title.

    To reproduce, create the following two files and run "testbatch" from the command prompt multiple…

  13. Provide official download links to previous versions of Remote Desctop for Mac.

    Provide official download links to previous versions of Remote Desktop for Mac - Specifically v8. By witholding these, you are making older Macs less useful and more importantly failing to support your customers. I assume Microsoft would rather see perfectly functional machines in landfill rather than supporting sustainability. Shameful

  14. Fix OAuth Token URL For ADFS Authentication

    When authenticating to a pool (Fall 2019 release) via ADFS, the scope= parameter is specified twice (example below) which are reported as errors on the ADFS server, obfuscating more meaningful data. It would be appreciated if this could be fixed:

    https://<adfs>/adfs/oauth2/token?granttype=refreshtoken&refreshtoken=<omitted>&scope=openid+logoncert&windowsapiversion=2.0&nux=1&siteid=501413&scope=logoncert&display=popup

  15. Cloud Witness using Azure Private Link Storage

    Currently, configuring a windows server cloud witness using an Azure storage account is assuming the storage account is a public one. Can we update the UI to make allocations for a private link url? I think the only update here will be allowing users to specify their own endpoint url (which would be passed to Set-ClusterQuorum as the Endpoint option.

  17. X11 forwarding in OpenSSH Server not implemented?

    It is simply unbelievable that the ssh server that microsoft provides does not include one of the most basic features of ssh. X11 forwarding. I wasted 3 hours of my life try to export an application from a windows machine my linux box.
