I found this form at this page:
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/ask.html

But I do not see any reference to help me know to what forum/product/service this question will be submitted.

If I have a question about Windows Server 20XX how to direct it there?

And I I have a question about, oh, Robocopy for example, or other such non-version specific tools, where would that question be submitted and how to navigate to the correct place for that or any question?

I am being forced to add a tag but "general" or "any" does not produce a result.

Windows Server
Windows Server
A family of Microsoft server operating systems that support enterprise-level management, data storage, applications, and communications.

    The scripting forum has not yet migrated so I'd suggest asking here about robocopy.
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/scriptcenter/en-US/home?forum=ITCG

    These forums are tag based as opposed to MSDN/TechNet topic based forums. As to tagging here you can see the list of possibilities here.

    a little more info here as well.

    Well, that was not fruitful,

    From the https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/scriptcenter/en-US/home?forum=ITCG

    You are in the wrong forum. Please post in the Windows General forum for help using system utility programs.

    Guess I will never know the answer.

    I've learned that its all in how you ask over there. Either case the possible windows-server tags are listed here.
