        On December 15th of 2011 Microsoft made a big change that largely goes unnoticed by the vast majority of users; updates to Internet Explorer began to happen automatically.

        Today, Microsoft continues to install the latest updates for Internet Explorer supported by the user’s operating system without getting in the way. With Internet Explorer 10 we also added a UI control to the “About Internet Explorer” window which gave the end-user easier control over this process.

        Understandably there are some situations in which auto-updates are not desired. For instance, enterprise customers may (and do) choose to opt-out of these updates due to a reliance upon older versions of Internet Explorer internally.

        Tasked with supporting legacy applications, while also supporting the advancing web, the Internet Explorer team developed Enterprise Mode for Internet Explorer 11. This feature is designed to grant the user all of the security and speed of a modern browser,…

        Could you please support Windows 8.1 in Edge? Currently Edge is not supported there. This is a primary reason why our front-end dev team still has to support IE11. Unfortunately some of our customers are not moving to Windows 10 yet.

                      Updating status to fine-feedback so others can share their thoughts too.

                      During the Creators Update engineering cycle, we added the ability to invoke Windows apps from within a Linux process running on WSL and vice-versa. This means you can run any Windows .exe using, for example, “msbuild.exe” from within Bash, and you can invoke bash commands from within Windows via ‘bash -c fish’.

                            Related to “Add USB Device support”: https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/266908-command-prompt-console-bash-on-ubuntu-on-windo/suggestions/16759696-add-usb-device-support

                            This is a common ask and, now that we’ve gotten through most of the fundamental engineering, we’ll be more able to start looking-into device support sometime relatively soon, though no guarantees about when and what ;)

                              Yep, this would be really cool. Not just for URLs, but things like paths too. Script emits a path to an error log? Just ctrl+click it to open!

                              I can see some trickery around the parsing (performance impacts? security? and of course the parsing itself…) and the launching of another app (security again?). But it would be awesome.

                              It’s on our backlog for sure.

                                  You will be Rich’s best friend forever. He loves the idea of a Quake console as well and talks about it all the time. :P I know for sure this is in our backlog already.

                                  Some of the suggestions like persistence and multiple sessions and whatnot seem related to the “history between sessions” and tabs/multiplexing ideas. Same technical challenges apply, but sounds possible at some point. :)

                                      As Chip said, UTF-16 is rather baked into the stuff we do. The console host does use UTF-16 somewhere in there. :P We just have the matter of dealing with code pages throughout the history of computing existence that causes us heartburn every time we think about how to fix this. :( It’s definitely something that we would like to look into on our backlog.

                                      Perhaps you guys could just create a new console host with UTF-8 support, without getting rid of the old one --- sort of like Edge is to IE11.

                                        Since WSL now supports 2-way invocation between Windows and ELF binaries, perhaps running multiple cmd.exe instances inside of tmux would accomplish this?

                                          What about automatic copy on select or shift+ctrl+c, and shift+ctrl+v to paste? While I agree copy/paste on the keyboard needs work, this request is worrying because ctrl+c is necessary for SIGINT.
