  1. Name of PC you're RDPed into

    All I have is a dark tab with "..." instead of the name of the PC like any other version of RDP. Please put the name of the machine I am using on that tab.

      • Why did you get rid of the connection status?

        My app just got upgraded and you got rid of the connection status. It was very useful in determining if UDP was working or not. As a sysadmin, this is a very useful troubleshooting tool that is no longer there. Please put it back.

        • Change what password characters are accepted...

          If you connect to a server using an account that has an ALT-xxx character in the password, you CANNOT connect using this tool! In the PREVIOUS version you could. I hate when I am FORCED to update a Win10 App that was working perfectly, to one that no longer works for my needs. Either fix this password acceptance issue in the new version, or give us the option to choose which version we want to run.

            • Cannot log in if password needs to be changed

              If a password needs to be changed (because it expires) then trying to auto-login using the saved UN/PWD fails. You get an error and bumped out. The only way I can find around it is to use the standard RD client to connect to the computer and change the password.

              • Thumbnail should reflect state of connection

                When on the main view of the app it shows a thumbnail of each connection but the thumbnail is either a static image or the last desktop view. This makes it pretty much impossible to tell which connections are active and which ones aren't. Logging off a connection still shows the last desktop that was visible prior to logoff.

                  • Update option icons and then replace the old desktop application

                    - Update option icons (disconnect and full-screen)
                    - The certificate dialog box, not adapted to the cursor is too big
                    - Replace old desktop application for this UWP

                      • Microphone and Cortana

                        Hyper-V client, Virtual machine connection, is bringing my default microphone to the virtual machine allowing me to use Cortana. Bringing a microphone to the remote computer would be a great addition to the Remote Desktop App. It would be even greater to allow for choosing one of my sound input (and output) in the app parameters.

                        • Fix the audio issues. When I am on W7 connecting to W10 via RDP on the LAN, it works perfectly. Via RDP for MAC, it's super choppy.

                          Fix the audio issues. When I am on a Windows 7 Virtual Machine on my Mac connecting to Windows 10 System via RDP over the LAN, it works perfectly. Via RDP for Mac, it's super choppy and crackles a lot. There seems to be quite a difference between the two clients in this regard as both systems would be using the same hardware.

                            • Support for the hosts in a different domain as the host on which the RDP App has been installed

                              It should be possible to open a RDP session on any host. It is not possible at the moment to start a RDP session on a host in a different domain - the "The blank password is not allowed" error even if the password field of the user's credential is not empty.

                                  • Default Audio to Remote PC [I know there's an option]

                                    I remotely connect via. mobile all the time from many different devices. Connecting I forget that my audio directs to my mobile.. I'm streaming audio to a voice server 24/7.. So logging on and forgetting to change the default messes me up all the time.. I know I can change it but I request for the default to be remote PC and not Device. Thank you!

                                    • Slow connection

                                      connecting to windows 7 RS using windows 10 is practically very hard since the high dpi setting in my yoga 900 does not scale properly. This works fine in a macbook pro using the same application. Also the same connection is painfully slow on windows 10. Any suggestions or room for any tweaking??

                                      • Globally Disable Saving of Usernames and Passwords

                                        Right now each time you connect the checkbox for "store user name and password" is checked. Meaning each time you connect you have to unselect this option.

                                        I would like to have the option of turing this feature off by default.

                                        • Why is there a second place for feedback separate from the Windows Feedback app?

                                          I would have never known that there was a second place where you wanted feedback if I hadn't stumbled onto a tiny link in the about menu. The whole point of the Windows Feedback app is consolidating feedback, isn't it? It makes it pretty dumb to have a separate UserVoice where you're telling people to leave feedback.
