How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Keyboard support for Edit Task Sequence Variables

Keyboard support to select task sequence variables in the Task Sequence Wizard to edit them. Instead of having to use the mouse to click them and change values. This is helpful when imaging a large batch of computers and using a KVM.

Updating status to started – see for an explanation of values.

Our 1906.1 Technical Preview is released and contains changes to make editing the variables easier when there’s no mouse.

    is there any update on this? what is the magic key combo to edit variables? Can we make like F2 or something semi-standard. Using mouse is annoying and not always an option.

    YES! Me and my workers are constantly accidentally using the Enter key to select and edit a TS variable, which just immediately starts the TS, meaning we have to cancel and reboot. Such a frustrating time waster.
