  3. Make it work

    I was trying learning platform and was stuck on a page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/modules/welcome-to-azure/4-create-a-vm?pivots=windows-cloud where I was supposed to create VM. The right side where I was supposed to type anything is not working. The only thing that works is restart and feedback buttons.

  4. Restore the ability to map a network drive to Azure File Storage

    This used to be a feature in Cloud Shell. Then it disappeared sometime in the summer of 2018. Apparently it's something to do with the switch from windows to Linux.

    If you go to Azure File Storage and click the ellipsis you can still get a snippet of code that is supposed to mount a Z drive to that File Share. Only it doesn't work any more.

    I rasied a bug for it here:
    https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/8829#issuecomment-461560590

    And got told it *was* a bug. Therefore could I request it as a new feature.
    Which I am not sure makes total sense. But…

  9. make bash .profile file work in Cloud Shell

    Although there is a .profile file in a user's home directory in bash Cloud Shell, I could not find any evidence that it gets executed when starting a Cloud Shell session. It is possible to work around this with a hack in the .bashrc and an extra environment variable, but the behavior of bash startup scripts in bash Cloud Shell should be well-defined and documented.

  10. copy-paste for "code" editor doesn't work.

    I tried to complete the quick hands-on intro for Azure Key Vault following the instructions but it is impossible to paste the examples of the code via shell. I can paste the examples to my local notepad but it is impossible to paste it thru the shell to editor of the sandbox.

  15. Ipad

    Eliminate double letters on new iPad Pro Keyboard.
    I.e., when I try to type “ls”, I get “llss”. The shell then tells me “llss” is not a recognized command.

  19. Allow output to be redirected to clipboard similar to PBcopy

    For example, I might have a large log file I want to grab the output of. Trying to get that into my clipboard via scrolling is a silly, futile undertaking. Allow the output to be redirected into a box that is easily copied.
