  2. [Registry] navigation with keyboard

    Fastest way through registry is arrows and keyboard:
    sof > mic > wind > cur > run
    Also, registry hive path should always be visible on top.

  6. [DCOM] set DCOM permissions

    Would like an interface to set DCOM permissions for Windows Core servers. Finding the correct registry key to edit and writing SSDL syntax for are too cumbersome

  7. [Bug] - CBS Pending reboot check

    [Bug] - Pending reboot due to CBS

    The code to check for a reboot does not appear to correctly test if there is a pending reboot related to Component Based Servicing.

    On the servers I have, the following line of code from the Test-PendingReboot function does not return a value.

    Get-ChildItem "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\RebootPending"

    Testing the same registry path with the "Get-Item" cmdlet returns a value when there is a pending reboot related to CBS.

  8. Give the ability to view and edit pagefile and startup and recovery options

    It would be really convenient to have this ability instead of tweaking registry.

    Thank you

  10. Selecting tools functionality

    Please add a functionality to Windows Admin Center that enables to select tools.
    For instance, I'd like to remove registry tool from WAC, so I hope WAC admin can remove tools from WAC view.

  11. Log off & Bulk edit

    It would be great for the WAC to have a log off procedure to force closing all active sessions.
    It would be great to add some bulk edit options.
    e.g. reboot multiple systems, or add a registry key in multiple systems

  12. Storage Migration Service - Cannot download error CSV file

    I'm getting a timeout trying to download the error csv file for a storage migration I am doing. I've followed the instructions from this web page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-migration-service/known-issues#storage-migration-service-times-out-downloading-the-transfer-error-csv. I have rebooted the server and re-logged into WAC. I have been successful in downloading the transfer log. Even changing the sendtimeout setting to 10 minutes, the resulting error page still shows the timeout setting as 1 minute. The routine appears to not be picking up the configuration from the config file and the registry change.
