    This is possible in the legacy version in Windows 10, but seems not to be in the Universal App.

      • Unable to connect through a Windows Server 2012R2 Remote Desktop Gateway (see TechNet)

         
        I am unable to use the new Microsoft Remote Desktop app (Version: 10.1.996.0) to connect to a remote PC through my Windows Server 2012R2 Remote Desktop Gateway. Using the old Remote Desktop Connection application (Shell Version: 10.0.15063) to connect via configuring the advanced tab > settings and specifying the gateway and User name in the following way works great.
         
        Server name : mygateway.mycompany.com
        User name: DomainUserName@DomainName.com (EX: Fred@contoso.local)
         
        Using these same settings to configure new Microsoft Remote Desktop app fails after trying for about a minute with the message “Couldn’t connect”, etc. (see 2<sup>nd</sup> screenshot below).…

        • Option to disable automatic adding saved desktops

          In our hosting company, we use an administration system to connect to all the Windows servers, which open an RDP connection when requested.
          Each time i connect using the MS remote desktop beta 8.2.32 it automatically adds a saved desktop, which becomes a complete mess and it also make the automatic login fail, when there are saved desktops with the same address as the administration system tries to log into.
          Please, add an option to disable this automatic saving of desktops.

          Different ways to do it:
          - A command line argument (ex. --disable-saved-desktop)
          - An option in the RDP file…

          • Allow defining a DPI scaling factor when using "Match this device" resolution

            In order to specify a display scaling factor the app forces you to specify the client resolution. You cannot take advantage of the ideal automatic native resolution setting if you want to use a scaling factor.

            • Allow the use of the host´s keyboard while in RDP

              It would be great if you could use the keyboard of the host to type while in RDP.

              Im trying to make a cintiq-like setu with my surface pro 4 and this is one of the things that keeps me from archieving the setup, since with the lack of express keys on the tablet you lose the ability to use hotkeys in Photoshop, Zbrush and anything else.

              • Import a list of computers

                Import a CSV or text file with list of computers, groups, login accounts etc. I manage over 200 VM's and I refuse point blank to sit there and create them all manually. The rest of my team also manage the same VMs, so I could pass the text file to them or have the ablity to export a "configuration" excluding passwords of course.

                          My phone has multi-external storages. RD client only redirects my internal storage, not my external storages. So it's great if RD client supports redirecting multi storage. Thanks.

                                      • faster reconnection after sleep

                                        every time my win 10 laptop goes to sleep and remote desktop disconnects, when i wake up from sleep, it takes a much longer time to reconnect to the same server than an initial connection. this shouldn't be the case, it should automatically detect the connection is now gone and reconnect quickly.

                                        • Allow better ways to utilize High Resolution Cameras over an RDP connection

                                          Currently we are testing a High Res Intra Oral Camera, When I am at the same site as the RDS Host server and I log into my VM. The LAN traffic jumps when I start using the camera. At a remote site it disconnects my from my session. I have found other third party software that uses a different method to show you the camera feed without losing your connection to the VM. Microsoft should utilize something of the sort.
