  1. Create a better edit for Tasks Scheduler

    Create a better Task Scheduler GUI for Windows. You can't even rename tasks, drag drop, duplicate, migrate to another server, etc. I don't know how we can be in 2021 and have millions of admin who use Task Scheduler and have something can't do basic operations.

  3. Remote Desktop app suddenly is gone

    While working in Windows 10, and having 3 open RDP sessions on various servers, the Remote Desktop app and it's 3 open RDP windows are suddenly gone.

    I am also using Windows desktops and use CTRL+WIN arrow left/right to switch between them. To avoid issues for that, I switched the RDP app settings to use shortcut only from Local PC.

  4. File Explorer | This PC - Be Able to "Unpin" items listed by default

    Under This PC there are a number of items listed that can't just be "Unpinned" in Windows. Specifically:
    - Desktop
    - Documents
    - Downloads
    - Music
    - Pictures
    - Videos

    Specifically when working on a server most if not all of these are irrelevant to a server running an application. It should be the (current) user's choice to unpin these and list only what they want pinned under "This PC". There may be registry hacks or other ways to get rid of these unnecessary and cluttering entries, but the UI should give a direct/clean way to remove these and improve…

  11. Can't use RDS with a Microsoft account linked computer.

    Pretty self explanatory. Local accounts work, but once you switch to a Microsoft account it just doesn't accept any username or password. (EX: email and ms, email and pin, username and pin, username and ms password, username and local password, email and local password, ETC.)

  14. Druckerproblem

    Microsoft Remote Desktop ist eine feine Sache und läuft ansich gut sowohl unter OS Catatan, als auch Big Sure. Unter beiden OS und auch nach Update 10.5.0 zu MRD gibt es zwei massive Druckerprobleme:
    1. Obwohl Zweiseitig an Drucker und in Software ausgeschaltet, wird immer nur zweiseitig gedruckt.


    1. Zuweilen werden nach Seite 2 nur noch "Hyroglyphen" immer zweizeilig gedruckt.

  16. 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…

  20. nslookup ignores "set port"

    nslookup in Windows 10 and Server 2016 ignore the "set port" parameter. It always tries to use port 53 regardless. I verified this via packet captures.
