  1. 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.

      • Self-signed Certificates

        Please allow the capability to connect to remote resources via RemoteApp™ (.../WebFeed.aspx) on servers with a self-signed certificate i.e. add a warning when connecting but offer the choice to continue...
        Thanks!

        • 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.

          • Remember Mouse or Touch mode

            Currently every new session defaults to Mouse mode. It'd be great if the system remembered what mode you prefer and then used it when you connect.

              • smart sizing

                allow the remote desktop to resize to take the screen size. The full remote desktop allow this by "smart sizing"
