        Amazing that MS removed the ability to print from the "NEW" remote desktop app. Under review for the past year and a half... pretty safe to say the have no intentions on making that happen... pretty sad.

        Very much need support for local USB printers. The preview seems to be solving an intermittent numkey issue we have had with the standard RDP. Local printer seems to be a necessary item for this version to be prime time ready.

        I have to agree so far I have found the preview app does seem to be the best one out there with just a few exceptions. A huge benefit will be the ability to connect local devices.

        Thanks,

        MS - can you advise when this particular feature will likely be introduced to the windows 10 preview app? The preview app works better than all other RDP types I've tried but we can't use it in our environment until we can connect local printers. Thanks!
