  1. Add passthru authentication when used with RDS gateway

    The built-in remote desktop client (mstsc.exe) has the option to use your credentials for both the gateway and remote desktop. At present, the Remote Desktop UWP app (at least with our RDS implementation) asks the end user to input their credentials twice.

    • Allow usage of username saved in RDP file

      The built-in remote desktop client (mstsc.exe) allows you to used the username saved in the RDP file even when the policy is set on the gateway to require your account info every time.

      • Allow me to discover all the machines connected to my Microsoft Account

        from: https://remotedesktop.uservoice.com/forums/255249-remote-desktop-for-windows-phone/suggestions/6131540-allow-me-to-discover-all-the-machines-connected-to

        Make easy connect to a PC or Tablet Running Windows 8.1 or RT if that devices are connected to my Microsoft account.
        Maybe can put a login with microsoft account section on the Remote desktop app, that automatically list all your devices running Windows 8/RT for a instant connection.

        • Make it easier to connect from anywhere

          from: https://remotedesktop.uservoice.com/forums/255249-remote-desktop-for-windows-phone/suggestions/6129352-make-it-easier-to-connect-from-anywhere

          Allow me to connect from anywhere to my home or work PC without worrying if it's behind a router or other NAT type device.
          From Alan (Original idea)
          Well, to be honest, I dont even know how to use remote desktop. No idea... What IP address?? For a person who doesnt know how to use it means the app is useless. I have both WP and Android phones. Google's remote desktop works awesome! You just need to have gmail and done. You do not need to be in the same WiFi. Works like charm.
          Hopefully, Microsoft's remote desktop…

          • Allow RDP to only use a subset of the available monitors

            More of my clients are using RDP and with your MS surface devices. The resolution of external monitors doesn't match the Surface display so they get dual two external displays. RDP messes this all up with either an all or 1 monitor selection. Search the internet and you'll see a lot of discussion about this. This has been an issue for many years and it's only getting worse with almost everyone I work with having at least 2 monitors.

              • 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.

                • Android RDP on chromebook, physical keyboard not able to send FN5, FN10, FN11 and also (Alt-Tab)

                  Hi there,

                  I find that using Android RDP on chromebook some FN keys is not working (e.g FN5, FN10, FN11). (even though I have enabled top row as function keys).

                  I find that some function key is working say FN3 but not all.

                  Also seems there is no way to use alt-tab

                  Thanks.

                  Cheers

                      • 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.

                        Best Regards,

                          For additional security (data loss prevention) customers would like to be able to use thumbdrives, but only to retrieve data from it and prevent writes to it. Please ad a server side policy to force redirected drives to be read only.

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

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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.
