    • 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.

      • Choose local mouse or remote pc wireless mouse.

        Hello, my name is Byeongcheol Nam.

        I wanna choose local mouse or remote pc wireless mouse.

        Remote mouse control is not that good right?
        (ex. when you use 3dmax or unity ...)

        My main work pc is macbook pro so I wanna control all my other pcs through it.
        It seems like PS4 remote working if I can choose support local wireless mouse or remote one.

        ps.
        I wanna play WOW with Microsoft Remote Desktop. :)

        • Please change the app so that the Credentials 'remember me' can be switched on and off

          We have computer labs for students. And therefore the devices are not personal. We cannot have the students to save their credentials. In fact as they do save students start to work using other student's profile...
          Ideally we should be able to manage the app using a group policy as there is for the RDP Connection.

              • Disable bitmap caching?

                Does this app use bitmap caching. I've been using this recently and it often cannot work in full-screen mode - though I can maximise it fine.
                In the old days, this was due to bitmap-caching being enabled.

                I can't find a way to fix this on the Universal App

                • Have the ability to launch more than one instance of the Remote Desktop App

                  I'd love to be able to launch multiple instances of the app at the same time. So I can work on to remote machines simultaneously.

                  • Ability to delegate Shadow/Logoff/Send Message to non-admin users through Server Manager

                    We have many customers that need the ability to delegate actions like Shadowing, Logging Off and Sending messages to a session for non-admin users through Server Manager.
                    We currently requires local administrator permissions for that to work.

                        • Automatic Tablet and Desktop Mode

                          The remote PC should automatically choose either tablet mode or desktop mode if it is using Windows 10 depending on the hardware configuration device you're using to connect it. I have a Microsoft Surface 3 which has the ability to automatically switch between desktop and tablet mode, based on it's hardware configuration. When connecting to a remote PC with devices like this, the remote PC's mode should match the device's and it should switch between the two modes at any time if the device changes it's hardware configuration.

                          • Can't tap edges of remote PC screen

                            When connected to a remote PC, you can't tap or swipe from the edges of the screen as these swipes are using by Windows to show the title bar, taskbar, task view and action centre. This means that you can't perform these swips on the remote PC. Even though you need to use the green grabber things that appear to do the above mention things, thins does not fix the problem as swiping anywhere or any edge causes the green grabber to show.

                              • Please enable drive redirection

                                The App is great, but it does not redirect the local client drives (TSClient drives at the Remote Desktop). If you connected to the web feed in Windows 7, the drives were mapped. Also the Microsoft Remote Desktop App for iOS and Android provides drive redirection. Why isn't it possible in the UWP version of Windows 10?

                                    Previous versions I could see the open desktops by right-clicking. Now, once I get to the home screen I have to remember which ones in the list are open. Once in a desktop, I can show the open ones on the left, but not from the home screen.

                                      The maximum number of remote session (same time) is 6. The next one will send an error (Your session ended because there was a protocol error......) Maybe a better explanation of the error could help - eg: You have reached the maximum number of simultaneously connection....
