  1. error - font color matches background

    I have a situation where the font color matches the background. I can copy the "invisible" text and paste into notepad in order to see the results but this is not optimal. I can't see what I'm typing.
    There is no way to change the font colors either.

  2. Entering a location besides 'eastus' breaks the console

    Since the generated resource group is set to that location by default

  3. No tutorial, a dica copiar/colar deveria ser a 1ª informação ao criar a VM.

    A dica assinalada no tutorial, ao criar a VM deveria ser a primeira informação. Facilita para os iniciantes.

  4. Refresh Cloud Shell editor via command-line option

    The Cloud Shell Editor provides a refresh button in file explorer. That seems to be the only way to refresh. Refreshing via the command line in the Cloud Shell instance would be extremely useful.

    With VS Code on my development machine, the following trick works today:

    code -r .

    Can we have support for this "-r" option?

  7. Second step of the azure tutorial already failing. Please make some step that helps the user to find out what went wrong

    The button to review what you did should help more. Telling the user what went wrong instead of just asking to repeat the steps.

  9. sandbox az vm commands not being executed being in the endless state of running..

    az vm extension set --resource-group 57c6d059-b996-4e33-bff6-991776803a7f --vm-name myVM --name CustomScriptExtension --publisher Microsoft.Compute --settings '{"fileUris":["https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MicrosoftDocs/mslearn-welcome-to-azure/master/configure-iis.ps1"]}'; --protected-settings '{"commandToExecute": "powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -File configure-iis.ps1"}'
    - Running ..

    So if you try to impress with speed, this screen doesnt change at all.

    ah wait, it did, but just after 5 minutes. now heading for the created ip, it doesn't respond.

    Listen. if you don't got the capacities, don't put up a learning platform

  12. Please instruct how to change location

    I cannot find a place to change location, even though the instruction on the left side screen gives me a list of locations.
    Beside, by default, the location is westUS, and westUS has 300 user, which causes error.

  13. make it work

    Es ist super ärgerlich auf eine Seite mit einer tollen neuen Idee zu kommen die dann nicht funktioniert!
    Beschreibt benötigte Vorgänge für die Sandbox!
    Es reicht nicht zu schreiben "die Sandbox ist aktiviert" und man kann trotzdem keine Eingabe vornehmen.

  15. allow me to specify a default cloudshell

    great, now you're asking me which one i want. I made a decision, I pick door A. now give me door A every time (unless I specifically select the other) or give me a know where I can specify the default and then override when i need to. I don't need to be asked which door i want to select every time since i tend to use the same door all the time.

  17. All VMs in previous sections get deleted and cannot be used in later sections

    Do not delete the VMs or at least give them more time to use them in the following sections because when running the following commands errors are shown stating that the VMs don't exist or the Resource Group was not found.

  18. Resource Group expiration

    The resource groups are deleted before one can move on to the next section. Give it more time to finish all sections without having to load the shell over and over again.

  19. add support for Internet Authentication Proxy

    Cannot leverage Azure Cloud Shell from on-premise. We use an Internet Authentication Proxy. We can implement a Proxy by-pass, but the application needs to be proxy aware.

    Requesting a Cloud Shell.
    PowerShell may take up to a minute.Succeeded.
    Connecting terminal...

    Failed to connect terminal: websocket cannot be established. Press "Enter" to reconnect.

  20. User-friendly way to get a list of preinstalled tools

    Both, Linux and Windows, Cloud Shell(s) are frequently updated with new preinstalled tools. To get a list of those tools and their versions we need to consult the docs. If would be much easier and efficient to get that info directly in the Cloud Shell session. For example, in PowerShell Cloud Shell, one could run Get-CloudShellTool and get tools' info. Similar command could be added to Linux as well.
