  1. 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…

  8. Mirocosoft Security & Compliance Toolkit - Common approach to apply GPOs

    Currently the GPOs provided by MS SCT (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/security-compliance-toolkit-10) have differents approaches how to install them.
    e.g.
    Windows 10 Version 1507 Security Baseline\LocalScript\10ClientInstall.cmd
    Windows 10 Version 1809 and Windows Server 2019 Security Baseline\Local
    Script\BaselineLocalInstall.ps1
    Windows 10 Version 1909 and Windows Server Version 1909 Security Baseline\Scripts{Baseline-LocalInstall.ps1, Baseline-ADImport.ps1, Remove-EPBaselineSettings.ps1}

    It would be nice to have common/generic approach how those GPOs can be applied. For example one powershell script that can be used to install any GPO regardless of the Windows patch level or AD status (joind to AD or standalone/local GPO) and specify the details with parameters. Otherwise…

  9. Add ability to use different account for gateway server than remote desktop

    My organization uses admin accounts for logging into servers, and normal accounts for logging into Remote Gateways. It seems this app does not support using different accounts for a connection that needs to connect via a gateway. This prevents my organization from using this app, as the Win32 version built-in to Windows allows for this.

  10. msrdc No Indication double click on jump box icon is doing anything

    When using the MSRDC.exe app it shows a set of jump box icons. When you double click one it starts to connect to a WVD server but there is zero indication anything is happening. Please provide an instant splash screen or hour glass at least so the user knows the double click was received.

  12. Make Deduplication powershell commands compatible with Powershell Core

    Right now when trying to use commands like Get-DedupStatus or Get-DedupVolume from PowerShell Core - the output is incorrect, i.e. content of some tables aren't displayed. If before using I load the module via Import-Module -SkipEditionCheck Deduplication, it starts working fine.

    Please mark the module as compatible with PowerShell Core and/or test if it is actually compatible!

    Related bug in PowerShell Core repository: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/12702

  13. SMBv1 client or server not used for 15 days, automatically uninstalls - ASK US FIRST

    This is a really annoying feature. It's a very bad idea. Please stop Win.10 from doing this (at least ASK us before uninstalling - who's the idiot that thought this up - we don't use every feature every 15 days): "Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Professional still contain the SMBv1 client by default after a clean installation. If the SMBv1 client is not used for 15 days in total (excluding the computer being turned off), it automatically uninstalls itself." This is wasting a lot of our time.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…
