    Thank you for your post and I apologize for the delayed response!

    I understand that you're running into a subscription issue when trying to start Azure Cloud Shell, even though you have an active free trial subscription with credits. To hopefully help point you in the right direction and resolve your issue, I'll share some troubleshooting steps below.

    1. Select a new Subscription from the Cloud Shell UI - For more info.
    2. If your free trial subscription can't be selected from the Cloud Shell UI, you'll have to register your subscription to the Microsoft.CloudShell namespace using Azure CLI or Azure PowerShell on your desktop.

    Note: You only need to register the namespace once per subscription.

    Registering your subscription with Azure Cloud Shell:

    Use the following commands to register the Microsoft.CloudShell namespace in your subscription:
    az account set --subscription <Subscription Name or Id>
    az provider register --namespace Microsoft.CloudShell
