Use cmd key in windows instead of ctrl
Use the cmd key in windows instead of the ctrl key. For instance when selecting muliple file in explorer.

Please provide keyboard remapping/swapping function for Windows key, Command key, alt/option key, and Ctrl key, that would be really helpful! thanks!
I would vote to have the OPTION. But simply swapping the keys makes no sense (unless you're a die-hard Mac user who thinks that macOS is the only true operating system). When I use Remote Desktop, it's because I want to operate in a Windows environment. I'm smart enough to use Windows functions when I'm in a Windows environment and Mac functions when I'm in a Mac environment.
Please swap all Command and Control keys! not just for cut copy paste!
Alt+tab no longer works in the new version of Remote Desktop (v10) and worked fine in v8. In order to switch between windows when using RDweb alt+tab used to work just fine, but no longer does. Is there a solution to this? Pressing the CMD key also doesn't bring up the start menu either, which also used to work.
option to swap control key for command key for mac.

I'm surprised this feature didnt make it over since it used to work on a previous version of RDP for Mac.
PLEASE ADD FEATURE THIS.
Add me to the list, full cmd/ctrl short cut flip please
At the very least, provide an option to use Cmd+C/Cmd+V for copy/paste like RDC for Mac had. Trying to switch between using Cmd and Ctrl depending on which window I'm in is maddening and results in frequent errors.
I am also for this feature. Just remapping functional keys will make everybody happy. To remember that you have to use different functional keys in different windows on desktop is pretty schizophrenic.
It's not really complicated feature, pretty much every other software has it implemented. But it's sitting here for years and its not even marked for implementation. So it does not seem that it will be ever implemented.
Either developers are not working on Mac computers or they want to make work as miserable as possible to punish as for not buying windows.
I want to kill the Windows button. Or at least remap it so it is not on the command key. The shortcuts in this program should function exactly like the shortcuts in any Mac program.

Yes Please Add This :)
Just swap these keys. Seriously, it is not hard Microsoft.
CMD+F opens "windows Search" if you want to search something in text or word.
This is a feature that I really need! Please implement it soon. thanks

We need additional key combinations like cmd+A and cmd+L, cmd+N, cmd+T, cmd+arrow keys, etc. as well we cut/copy/paste.

YES YES YES YES YES. I like that the beta has the option in there for copy and paste, but this is not sufficent. I dont want to think about which button to press to undo something or to save something. just allow it to be swapped in the preferences!!
Agree with those that have said just make it an option to swap Ctrl and Cmd for the whole session.
Any body knows how to bind Control-Space to Cmd-Space by setting Xml File?
Below settings didn't work for me.
<from command="1" key="Space" />
<to control="1" key="Space" />
Thanks a lot.

These are great improvement to Microsoft Remote Desktop app. I started editing the ClipboardActionTransformations.xml suggested by Chandler. Anyone have any idea how to configure arrow keys into the XML file?
Basically, I want to remap [option]+[left/right arrow] to [control][left/right arrow] respectively so I make my cursor skip over words. I have a bunch of these keymaps that would improve my ability to edit text when remotely connected to windows development machines. Thanks!

Yes, please add ability to remap modifier keys, like macOS has in System Preferences.
On both my Mac's, I remap Command to Control, and vice versa so hotkeys between my Windows and Mac computers are mostly the same. The problem is that when I remote a Windows machine from my Mac with remapped keys, it gets flipped back around the wrong way as my command key is sending a control key signal to the computer, and vice versa.
