How can we improve Windows Server Essentials?

Bring back ability to remember passwords on Server Essentials Launchpad

For those situations where domain membership is not appropriate (machines primarily Microsoft Account connected) or is an issue (where domain connected at work), which I agree is typically home environments rather than business, it would be really useful to allow the Launchpad to retain the password and to ensure that non-domain connected clients remain correctly logged onto the server. This was there in the original WHS and was really beneficial.

    Thinking more about this, it could be something that was only enabled through the registry, so that the default group policy for domain connected machines would remove the option.
