    So thankful for the improvements that I see being made to windows.
    Still a few windows that are very small on my large screen (not talking about the DPI issues).  Would like to see consistency in this area.  All windows should be resizable. One example is in Visual Studio. The Git changes list. I may have 100 files to check-in but only have 2 inch height listbox to view, even if I move it to my ultra-high monitor (ultra-wide rotated).

    Another thing I would like to see is more lists that can be sorted and filtered. The Task Manager has good sorting, but no filtering.  Sometimes, I would like to watch a process or 2 without it jumping out of view because of it's sort value changing.

    Keep up the good work.
