Nice addition, thanks for that. Now I don't need to make extra click everytime I change account or reboot comp to now whether the Public Preview is activated.
Nice, but what does the indicator "MS" stand for?
Seriously, it doesn't stand for Microsoft, does it? That makes no sense and I can't find any documentation that explains the MS designation. Thanks.
Hi, it does. It’s Microsofts so called ”ring”. I get the MS for ex. when switching to their tenant as a guest user.
