  2. Autostart a application when i connect to a server and export settings

    In the Windows-Version i can start a application on the remote system when i connect with rdp to the server.

    When i have different connection settings to one server without a name, then the export settings overwrite the other connections.

    When i want to choose all settings with CMD+A i cannot export, because the My Desktops is choosed and i must unchoose it, to export all the settings.

  3. let me move the tab menu to the side, instead of the top where every menu section opens it. . .

    the menu tab on top opens every time I get near to it. While every other program I use has menus on the top opening this stupid tab I never use. . . wasting screen space and effort!

  9. Allow desktop icon to launch remote app (on a Mac) without starting the client first

    Allow desktop icon to launch a remote app (on a Mac) without starting the client first. We would like the end-user experience to be similar to what it would be running native apps.

  10. Screen scrolling as cursor nears the edge of the screen

    Rather than the "double" scroll effect where you can scroll within you RDP session, then at the limit it scrolls the screen (when you are not using scaled, but the RDP is bigger than the physical screen).

    I think it would be better if it scrolled as you moved the mouse off the edge of the screen.

  11. Have dialog open on the display that the menu is active on instead of having to hunt for it and drag it to the desired display.

    On mulit monitor system the mac menu will display at the bottom of the display the mouse is in. However opening Remote Desktop will bring the dialog up on whatever display it was last dragged to and maybe hidden behind a session. If you could move the mouse to the bottom of the desired display, select open and have the dialog open on that display and then start the RDP session on that same display this would save a lot of hunting and dragging.

  13. change resolution of remote machine while still been connected, without the need to reconnect

    Have the ability to change the resolution, and the remote machine will change accordingly. today you have to reconnect to the machine after the connection properties are changed.

  16. System tray icon passthrough on RDP

    The ability for RDP sessions to pass through system tray information from the local computer. For example if you connect from a laptop on RDP it will send through the battery icon and status so you can see how much battery is left or other notification from the local pc. and hopefully a differenct colour or something to tell the difference between remote and local system tray icons
