A password dialog to connect to UNC path blocks the entire desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • put a unc path in explorer

    wait for the login dialog


    you cannot until you close the dialog.  This makes it difficult when your password is in an app that is opened by an icon on your desktop

    I have no where else to report this issue. it is a flaw in windows 10. I would expect it since on a phone you cannot use anything else when the app is focus and windows 10 is a phone OS.

    Professional services gave me a website that does not take feedback about windows 10

    the feedback app is blocked behind many businesses so i guess i just wont provide anymore feedback ever
