  6. about_using help topic doesn't exist

    On docs.microsoft.com there is a help topic for aboutusing which describes the using keyword that is new in Windows PowerShell 5.0 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.core/about/aboutusing?view=powershell-5.0).

    Running:
    Get-Help aboutusing
    returns the help topic about
    RemoteVariables which describes the $Using prefix used to access local variables from a remote session because that help topic has the keyword "aboutUsing".

    The about_using help topic should be added to the help topics for Windows PowerShell 5.1.

  8. geef mijn NAS terug

    Waarom haalt u een functie uit mijn OS, zonder mij een keuze te laten of is dat wel wil. Ik kan nu mijn NAS niet meer gebruiken, zonder dat ik een verschrikkelijk moeilijk verhaal moet lezen en dat ik mijn leverancier (die al niet meer bestaat) moet benaderen om iets te veranderen. Ik kan geen contact meer maken met mijn backup systeem om files op te halen, zonder dat ik nu een verschrikkelijk dure specialist ga inguren. Dank u wel microsoft. \geen wonder dat iedeeen over wil naar linux of OSx.

  12. Online HELP no longer has any valid links.

    Recently the new "docs"" site was implemented on MS. The old TechNet and MSDN PowerSHell help documentation is now buried and hard to access. The new help is no longer linked to any help for an CmdLet. We get "404" for all attempts.

    Also the new doc style is very pretty but not very useful. Same for the new Net class browser. On both the documentation is incomplete and has many errors compared to the original documentation.

    Please address this as using the documentation has become a nightmare. MS needs to go back to managing this directly and try and…
