Performance is very poor. E.g. for a page picked at random you are in the bottom 50% of sites in terms of speed according the pingdom speed test. See e.g. https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/dYpCmZ/https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/windows.ui.input.spatial.spatialp
You take 48 requests (including 21 scripts!) and 1.22MB to show some a site where the valuable content is text.. Speed is critical for technical docs, since you tend to click around so much.12 votes
Thanks for the feedback, we are currently looking into how we can improve the performance.
Please make the (left) navigation pane a little wider on wide screen monitors (1600px). It will increase readability in both the navigation pane (particularly in case of indented content) and main content.4 votes
This is currently under review. Thank you for your feedback!
Currently side columns on docs pages have fixed width and on iPad they are too wide. They force the middle context column to be too narrow, do not use full real estate, and, in particular for code examples, I have to scroll it right and left all the time to read the text.
It will be better to allow user to collapse left and right columns and expand them only when needed1 vote

Expose the existing breadcrumbs to search engines:
This clarifies exactly what each page relates to directly from search results, without relying on the URL (which is often truncated) or the page's title.2 votes
Thanks for the feedback, we are currently reviewing ways in which this can be implemented.
Add a section in the documentation that explains how to enable long path support with nuget.exe commandline tool and .net 4.6.2 - the idea is to add a nuget.exe.config file to same directory as user has nuget.exe located and then add the following to the nuget.exe.config (requires .NET 4.6.2 installed on machine running nuget.exe):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.6.2" />
<AppContextSwitchOverrides value="Switch.System.IO.UseLegacyPathHandling=false;Switch.System.IO.BlockLongPaths=false" />
Please add all the old docs for cmd.exe / batch file commands from:
It's only a few pages of very "old & boring" things, but very important and helpful since it's so arcane.2 votes

Currently it looks really bad on any high DPI display if you zoom in just a tad. The community will also love you more, since they're now even sharper :)2 votes

sad state of cognitive services documentation. there are (as of this post) 2 how-tos for over a dozen services. that makes only 1/6th with some semblance of documentation. how can we preview or use the service if we don't have direction on its use?1 vote
When I go to docs.microsoft.com I'm usually looking at similar and related things every time. Like for instance I might be looking for reference information on XAML and C++ examples or other very specific areas of interest, and that is what I do every time.
It would be nice to have your own area that saves recently read articles, save reading sessions and that present related articles that might be of interest to me specifically.1 vote
Thanks for the feedback! We will review this request during our feature planning sessions.
Thanks for the feedback, I have opened a bug for this and it should be getting fixed soon.
When you scroll to the bottom of https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/input-and-devices/speech-recognition the left navigation pane is resized to about half of the available height.1 vote
That’s a bug, thanks for the feedback, we are investigating the issue.
In code snippets, the methods are colored as classes but shouldn't be, parameter types or types in general are not colored at all. Would be nice if the coloring was consistent with Visual Studio; Roslyn might help with that.1 vote
Thank you for the feedback! We have added this to our backlog.
