This is something that we are evaluating now for a future Azure update.
Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested featureJohn Baldwin commented
I very *SERIOUSLY* need this feature, and without it am BLOCKED in doing my work.
I need to set up and configure a piece of software on some of our VMs.
The software does NOT have a command line interface; I must use the GUI.
The software detects when the user is connected via RDP and will not allow configuration. It can ONLY be configured by a user "sitting at the console". (Again, I emphasize, this is the GUI, and the serial console is totally useless to me!)
