  1. Allow ability to choose subset of local monitors for RDP session (full screen)

    Allow ability to select a subset of current monitors with full screen. Currently can choose all or 1 but cannot choose for instance 2 of 3 (full screen).

  2. "Live migration" of users from one Farm member to another.

    I'd like to be able to live migrate a User's session from Server A to Server B. This would allow me to more quickly perform maintenance on a node in my farm without logging off or disconnecting users. Drain is a good start, but still depends on the users logging out.

  3. Windows Virtual Desktop for On-Premises scenarios

    Windows Virtual Desktop will be available as a Microsoft Azure Service later this year. The idea is great - full Windows Client Desktop with Semi Annual Channel and full Office 365 Support but the most common feedback when I present Windows Virtual desktop to partners and customers is that they want to have this technology On-Premises. So please provide Windows 10 based RDS Host technology for On-Premises Deployments with full Office 365 Support and Semi Annual Channel Release cadence.

  5. RDWeb and RDGateway authentication thru ADFS

    To accomplish this at the moment you have to do a lot of work and if jou still would have SSO you have to put the ActiveX controll in the ADFS logon page. and this only works with IE.

    We use ADFS because of the use of MFA

    So it would be great if this is build in and have SSO with the remote desktop App

  6. RD client for Linux

    Create a Linux RDP client with full features like RemoteApp, rdgw-udp support. This client can also benefit the thin clients out there and possibly ubuntu phone.

    It shouldn't be too hard as there already used to be a linux client from iTop (now owned by MS), the open source development xfreerdp is quite far and there is already a android client out there.

  7. Exclude Admins from User Profile Disks

    Hi,
    Local administrators are also included in user profile disks which is really unuseful. We should be able to login to server with a local profile, for administer the server, install software, updates, etc. I really hope that this will change in a future release.

    Best option would be to let us login with mstsc /admin and on that way avoid upd.

  8. Fix Outlook search in RDS when using User Profile Disks

    Currently there is no way to enable Outlook search in RDS with User Profile Disks. Users now demand this as the Exchange Server-side search doesn't perform as well.

  9. Improve RDS Management Tools

    If there's a problem into RDS environment, like RDVH lost, the only way to resolve it is open SQL DB with SSMS but is not too friendly for the classic IT Admin.

    Is foundamental have a "AWESOME" tool to manage all the object without use SSMS (that is not installed by default).

  12. Let us select multiple connected RDS users through the Gui

    Let us select multiple RDS users in order to send them a message or disconnect them.
    This seemingly basic ability was possible up to 2008 r2 then was inexplicably taken away since Windows 2012 where we have to resort to scripting or select users one at a time!

  13. Fully featured, manageable RD client bootable image for USB drives. This would enable a multitude of inexpensive options for RDSE solutions!

    If MS would offer a prepackaged WinPE/AIK/ADK-like boot environment with a solid RD client, in a bootable image for USB drives and other local or network storage devices (bootable ISO?)... I think it could be an extremely effective component of many RDSE, VDI, and similar solutions. I can imagine a lot of scenarios where a standard, widely-used product of this kind could be tremendously effective. . I could go on and on (too late) about how this could benefit a wide variety of enterprise solutions, or be modified to suit many different additional situations, but I bet the people in…

  14. Password Change Possibillity in the NLA Protocol.

    Originated at: http://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/301872-remote-desktop-services/suggestions/10773021-password-change-possibillity-in-the-nla-protocol

    An item that is coming up as a recommendation in security scans every year is that NLA should be set to exclusively on for our server environments. NLA is a great concept. It works well to help secure the server environment. That said, it also complicates things for users in the environment when password resets occur via the help desk.

    To prevent a situation where the Help Desk staff have passwords to potentially sensitive accounts after reset, many regulations require that the "Change Password at Next Logon" bit be checked after a password reset occurs.

    In my…

  15. Dynamic rescaling

    It would be nice if there was a native support for dynamic rescaling of the remote desktop in accordance with the size of the Remote Desktop Client app (window), like it is done in Citrix solutions. Imagine a situation when you have multiple screens with different resolutions and you launch the client on one of those and move the window to another screen. Currently a reconnect may be needed in order to make the remote desktop smaller/larger to align to the new screen

  16. Fix Hyper-V Server 2019 - RDP not working

    On Hyper-V Server 2019, so the standalone hypervisor, RDP is NOT working. There isn't even a listening process after specifically enabling RDP with sconfig. I created a post on https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/c9d82adb-5dd5-4e43-878c-2e98e00c2943/hyperv-server-2019-rdp-not-working?forum=winserverhyperv about this. There is an MS rep telling us there 'MS is looking at it' but we never heard from him again.

    Please fix RDP on Hyper-V Server 2019.

  17. Create a "RD Client" Extension for Chromebooks with "Remote Desktop Gateway" support!

    This would fit the needs for lots of school that have started deploying Chromebooks and need access to windows services!

  18. Auto DPI adjustment when reconnecting to existing session

    It would be good if upon reconnecting an RDS that the DPI size be auto adjusted to match the resolution. E.g. When using a Surface Pro 3 to connect to an RDS session host the DPI is adjusted so that the icon size matches the high resolution, when reconnecting to the same session via a Full HD display the DPI isn't auto resized and the user has to log off and back on for the DPI to correct its self. It would be great if WS 2016 RDS auto adjusted thus saving the users from having to log off and…

  19. Full USB redirection in Session Host mode

    Let us finally have FULL USB redirection support in Session host mode.
    Just like Citrix or 2x.
    There is no way to use Scanner or USB token or some USB device (besides usb flash) in session host mode aka terminal services

  20. Include LTSB version of Edge browser rather than outdated, unsupported IE11

    In other words a MODERN web browser rather than OLD unsupported bad IE11 browser.
