  3. Add SmartCard Authentication to Windows

    Add support for using a SmartCard (PIV or CAC) to authenticate to the Windows OS itself. A number of large federal agencies (and presumably companies within the private sector as well) now require SmartCard based login. The redirection added to the most recent beta is a step in the right direction, but does not get us all the way there. We need to be able to authenticate to the OS itself (particularly to Windows Servers) for this app to be truly useful.

  5. Select which monitors will use an RDP connection

    In a multi-monitor setup with three or more monitors, configure an RDP session to assign one or more desktops for remote display, instead of an all-or-one monitor assignment.

  11. Disable menubar, access with Hotkey

    The drop down menu bar at the top of the screen when using Full screen mode is preventing me from accessing the top of my screen's RDP session.
    I would like a way to disable this menu bar so it only is accessible by a hot key, i.e Apple Key + 1 or 2.
    The previous version of the Remote Desktop app did this.

  12. Folder and printer redirection for Remote Sources on Mac

    We have started to use RDS pretty heavily between our PC and Mac users. We have other apps that we would use in the RDS setup if we could get folder redirection for exports from the app.

  13. change group membership using drag & drop in GUI

    now you have to edit properties of RDP item to change it from one group to another. Using drag & drop in GUI seems more intuitive, not ?

  14. Redirect printers with the correct driver.

    Currently when using the Remote Desktop Program the printers are redirected and do not use the correct driver. When you print PDF files over 2 pages long it can take upwards to 30 minutes to print. If you manually change the printer driver to use the correct driver on the server, the documents print immediately.

  17. Your session has ended because of an error -- "Error Code 0x4"

    After upgrading Remote Desktop to Version 10.3.5 (1723). I receive the following error "Your session has ended because of an error -- Error Code 0x4" whenever I sign out, or my Mac goes to sleep or I disconnect and then try to reconnect some time later. The only way for me to re-connect is to message the remote office and ask someone to reboot the remote Win10 PC.

    This is causing major headaches for our work and has dropped my productivity or ability to work significantly.
