  1. Allow copy and paste of files between local and remote machines

    In the standard Remote Desktop Connection software you can move files between the remote and local computers easily. Provide a file copy mechanism for doing this in the new client.

  7. Add wake on lan functionality

    Frequently I need to remote into machines which are "sleeping" and I need to use a Wake on Lan tool to wake them, wait, and connect using remote desktop. I would like to see Remote deskop beeing able to send a magic packet and keep trying to reconnect for a couple of minutes until the remote machine is ready.

  8. Sync the local keyboard layout to the host

    You should be able to keep your local keyboard layout from your host computer when remoting into another computer.
    Many servers and computer are locked so that the keyboard layout may not be changed, or have issues where the layout will switch back to US qwerty. I use Dvorak and this is VERY annoying to me.

  9. Show remote Desktop in a "virtual desktop" on Windows 10.

    Each remote session should go into its own virtual desktop on the local machine. This would allow a very clean representation of the remote in the local working environment.

  13. Steam In-Home Streaming: Fix the "screen is locked on the remote computer" error

    Steam In-Home Streaming is an excellent way to stream Windows-based Steam games to other platforms (not just Mac and Linux, but even to other Windows machines with lower-performance hardware).

    However, there is a compatibility issue between Microsoft Remote Desktop and Steam In-Home Streaming. Frequently, attempts to start a Steam streaming session after a Microsoft Remote Desktop session fail with the following error:

    "The screen is locked on the remote computer."

    Apparently, this is an issue with the way that Microsoft Remote Desktop (either the client or the server) terminates a terminal services session: something about the session is being left…

  15. Add support of URI call

    Currently the Android, iOS and Mac OS clients all support URI calls to start the client with specific parameters. Add the same URI scheme support for the Windows Universal client.

    There is a solution in place today for this although we know we need to make this more intuitive.

    If two PCs have the same username like administrator, they can be saved by prepending the username with the machine name instead of just a dot. PC1\administrator and PC2\administrator.

    Would love to hear your thoughts on this approach versus having to add an additional field for the nickname.

  17. Allow remote PC to not be locked

    I would like to be able to remote control my home theater PC while still viewing its output on the big screen. Today I am using TeamViewer for that, but why not add it natively to Windows? It is something that has been lacking always.

  18. Ability to connect multiple admins to one RDP session

    The ability for multiple administrators to connect to one RDP session would really help in situations where you diagnose a problem and want
    a colleague to look with you.

  19. utilize surface pro 3 screen as tablet

    Allow surface pro 3 to use screen pen as tablet for another PC. I,e. using photoshop or 3D creative apps on my main pc my surface is unused. it could make a great tablet in some cool lower power screen sim mode. one step further the screen could be used for key mapping for shortcuts in apps.

  20. Using 2 of 3 Screens on Terminal Server

    Actually i can choose between 1x Fullscreen or all Screens on Terminal Server.

    It would be cool if i could say Screen 1 and 2 is on Terminal Server and Screen 3 is local or some other configurations.
