How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Adjustable Window Sizes within Admin Console

It would be nice to have the ability to adjust window sizes within the console. As an example, the Membership rule window in the collection properties only has enough room to show 2 lines. Being able to maximize or edit to a custom size and have the console remember these sizes would be great.

This could be incorporated into the fixes that are being introduced with the High DPI resolutions.

    Doing this everywhere in the console would be expensive/difficult. Rather than wait to make any improvement until the time we can fix it all… I’m curious what the top 10 most important places to fix are. I’m thinking we fix those first, and then go from there.

        I combined suggestions from comments and added a couple others.

        Collection Window Properties
        Active Directory Discovery Properties
        Query Rule forms
        Boot Image Properties
        Device Properties
        User Properties

        Agree with James. By far the most glaring and painful problem place that this happens is the Membership rules tab of Collection Properties, where you can never see more than two rules at a time.

        There's a ton of empty space on that window too, so you wouldn't even necessarily need to resize the whole window (though that would be nice), just letting the list box take up all of the empty vertical space would be such a quality of life improvement.

        I would be happy with just collection properties. Specifically, be able to see more than 2 membership rules at a time.
