  1. When using Japanese layout keyboard, Keyboard layout on the Remote machine is not correct.

    When using Japanese layout keyboard, Keyboard layout on the Remote machine is not correct.

    - Fail frequency is 100%.
    - Happen this issue with Win10 Pro and Windows 10 Mobile.
    - Not happen this issue with another remote access solution like VMware Horizon view.

    It seems that this issue depend on this UWP app. Could you please verify and resolve this issue? This issue is very critical for Japanese keyboard users.

    • Please allow Multi Screen support in your Remote Desktop App!

      Allow Support for 2 or more monitors. Currently Multiple MOnitors only work for me if I am using the old RDP.

      • System tray icon passthrough on RDP

        he 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

        • 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.

          • Support connection to a remote desktop using Azure AD credentials

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

            • Allow Watermark all over the screen for extra-protection against pictures.

              Allow logos, messages, phrases, etc, to be placed all over the screen, Always on top (unlike BGInfo) . Helps assure the compliance preventing data breach.

              • 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).…

                • 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.

                  • 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.
