  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.

  5. Fix the issue with "docker daemon not found"

    I've presented several Microsoft Azure events where Microsoft's lab instructions include steps that use Cloud Shell (Linux), and run various docker commands. This used to work fairly well, but in the past few months we've been getting the "docker daemon not found" error. Please fix this so we can present Microsoft's events without lab issues!

  9. default

    How to set a default Cloud Shell, i.e, Bash or Powershell? When log on, it always started with Powershell(Preview) and then I have to switch it to Bash. Is there a way to set default Cloud Shell enviornment?

  10. Respect the shell choice in the URL when onboarding new users

    If you navigate to https://shell.azure.com/powershell, and you haven't used Cloud Shell yet, you are brought through an onboarding process that eventually asks you which shell you want to use, Bash or PowerShell. When you specify the shell you want in the URL, users should not have to make that choice, and instead should be onboarded and then brought directly into the shell that the URL was trying to bring them to.

  12. ask me if I want PowerShell or Bash when I open the cloudshell

    I want to be asked which cloudshell I want before it opens. I use Bash and PowerShell and go back and forth very often. So I would like the cloud shell to ask me when I start which I want, rather than open it have to change

  13. Minimal toolbar

    The toolbar takes up too much space. Any chance that the tools could be put alongside the top line?

    Some sort of autohide toggle would be great, such as the Alt used in vscode. Oh, and dark colours... ;)

  14. VSCode Online Option for Azure Cloud Shell (remove existing text editor)

    Add VSCode option for Cloud Shell. I know that this is possible, before VSCode Online I saw a container that had VSCode in it. I think it was similar to this: https://dev.to/quantone/how-to-run-vs-code-as-a-container-for-remote-development-2ng3

  16. Paste from Win + V?

    Is there any way to grab the output of Win + V to paste? Currently we need to Win + V to get the right thing onto the clipboard and then Shift + Insert to paste.

  17. Improve cloud shell with a smart way

    To use and improve the Azure Cloud Shell, you will need an Azure subscription, and you may be charged based on the resources you use to log in. When you sign up for the first time, you will need a resource group and an associated Azure file sharing and storage account

  19. Enable launch URL to choose tenant

    It would be great if the CloudShell launch URLs could allow selecting which Azure tenant to log-in to.

    The Azure portal URL allows me to do this:

    https://portal.azure.com/@<tenantdomain>

    This will open the Azure portal in the context of the tenantdomain directory.

    If the cloud shell could allow the same "syntax" it would make it very easy to launch the correct cloud shell. So if I want to use "yooakim" tenant I could:

    https://shell.azure.com/@yooakim.onmicrosoft.com

    or if I want to use contoso.com I could:

    https://shell.azure.com/@contoso.com

  20. show notification feedback in the web ui from command line changes

    when making changes in the command line, can you also show feedback in the notification bell, with its progress bar, in the web ui? would be great if a co worker using the shell can see those.
