  3. Custom Key Mapping for macOS Client

    Add the ability to custom map keyboard shortcuts from macOS to Windows VMs. Currently only supports ⌘-C / ⌘-V to Ctrl-C / Ctrl-V which is inadequate. The ability to map for instance ⌘-S, ⌘-X, ⌘-Z and ⌘-⇧-Z would greatly improve the user-experiance for mac users.

  5. Shorter URL for Remote Resource Feed

    Having to enter the entire URL for the feed in Windows 10 makes no sense. An end user should just be able to enter "remote.company.com" and Windows should fill in the rest. Currently we have to enter "https://remote.company.com/rdweb/feed/webfeed.aspx".

  6. Huawei P20 Pro

    I have a Huawei p20 pro and the mouse pointer is about 5mm to the left of where it actually clicks and the bottom and right hand side of the screen don't display in full screen mode.

  8. Bugfix

    Please introduce a bugfix for the following situation:
    When using the Android app of Microsoft Remote Desktop and trying to connect to a computer with NLA disabled while being redirected to another computer, the app throws error 0x204 "We coudn't connect to the remote PC. Make sure the PC is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled."

  9. OSX fullscreen without new space

    Just like iterm2 allows a full screen without native spaces in OSX.

    Doing that will allow us to switch to full screen RDP app by jumping directly to the workspace without the annoying window borders and title.

  12. Pixelbook

    I cannot seem to figure out the screen resolutions on my pixlebook. The screens are either way too big or way to small. Any suggestions?

  13. Mac RDS app won't recognize when mouse buttons are reversed (on purpose) on both the Mac and Windows 10 computer.

    The Windows 8 Remote Desktop App For Mac was good at recognizing that I have my primary and secondary mouse buttons reversed in my Mac (and Windows 8) preferences. However, the Windows 10 app for Mac can't handle that and often treats both buttons as if they are secondary mouse buttons! I have to use the touchpad instead but I really shouldn't have to.

  16. RDP session is minimized when clicking on other monitors or windows.

    I run multiple monitors. Frequently, when I have an RDP session open on one monitor, and click on a window in another monitor, the active RDP session minimizes. This is extremely frustrating when trying to compare data between the two windows and practically defeats the purpose of having multiple monitors.

  17. Allow accounts with the same name to be created

    At the moment you can not create two or more accounts with the same name. This is wrong. As long as the password is different as well they should be treated as separate accounts.

    My client's IT often create an account for me using by first name which means I can't use this app to connect to all my RDC's.

  19. Extended logging for MSRA

    We need precise logging for MSRA sessions. Which support user, which end user; timestamps for start and end of session an remote control; remote machine name etc.
    Logging should be only in the MSRA application log.

  20. Allow RDS web services RDWeb and RDGW to be installed within a new web site in IIS rather than Default Web Site

    Allow RDS web services RDWeb and RDGW to be installed within a new web site in IIS rather than Default Web Site. I encountered issues with RDS deployment being visible in Server Manager when ADCS NDES (Network Device Enrolment Service) is installed in the Default WebSite in IIS, the Service Principal Name associated with the NDES service account creates issues connecting to the RDCB in Server Manager
