  1. Bring Multi session back without asking for credentials each time.

    In older version, you didn't lose the connection or had to enter credentials each time. Now when you try to open a RDP session, you lose connection to the one you just came off of. Also, bring back the dropdown as suggested by other, to go between the sessions. Seems the new version is going backwards rather than forward, or is being updated by people that don't use it.

    • potreste adattare la risoluzione del pc remoto al pc dalla quale si accede

      potreste aggiungere la possibilità di accedere in remoto con la risoluzione del pc remoto.
      attualmente Accedendo con un Surface pro 4 in un altro pc, tutto si vede molto piccolo

          • Allow snapping of windows with the mouse to the right of the screen

            For now snapping windows with the mouse seems to be only possible to the left of the screen. I don't see why it would not be allowed to the right...

            • being able to edit or delete a saved connection would be ideal

              WP10 Rd client, not beta version. Currently unable to edit or delete saved connections which is annoying because the saved credentials were not migrated when the app was upgraded

                • provide options of 1) using custom scaling or 2) follow local machine scaling setting

                  the custom scaling is applied to target workstation without "on top of" local machine's scaling setting.
                  e.g. Surface Pro 4 (200% scaling) connect to a "win10" workstation and with a custom scaling setting is 200%. The final scaling should be 200% instead of 200% + 200%. (note: this behavior does not happen when connect to a win 7 workstation)

                    • Don't disable lock screen outside of sessions

                      Currently the lock screen is disabled in the app at any time.
                      I often log out (which might take a while, depending on the server), and don't stay at the computer or phone... In the menus I'd love to keep/restore the system's lock screen behavior instead of eating battery.

                        Civil 3d curser movement is poor through remote connections. Figure out a way to make it move smoothly

                        • GSM+VPN does not work

                          VPN+WiFi+RDP works fine, but when I'm using GSM+VPN RDP tries to connect, asks if I want to connect to machine, after confirmation with "connect" button it just waits and time outs.
                          Tried on Lumia950XL with the latest wp10.

                          • Possible Bug With New Connections

                            When I add a new connection, the app fails to refresh and reveal the newly added desktop connection. I have to close out the app and re-launch it for the new machine to "pop up." Hope this helps.

                            • Fast switching (you broke it)

                              Switching between connections was faster before, now it is a two click process and not as clean/friendly/essay as it was before. Please put it back.

                                • [Windows Phone] The last update destroyed the app

                                  Before update
                                  - The touch movement were good.
                                  - The keyboard label were equal of my phone language.
                                  - Caps lock function worked fine.

                                  After update
                                  - Mode touch: When I try to select something that is close to the center, the screen MOVES instead to select
                                  - The keyboard label is US.
                                  - The function to write everything in CAPS don't work anymore.

                                  • Allow Snipping Tool captures from remote screen

                                    The Snipping Tool on the local machine is not able to capture anything from the remote desktop view. This causes headaches that make me revert to the original client.

                                      • WORST APP EVER

                                        This is not OFFICIALLY the WORST app Microsoft has EVER released . . . worse than ME, worse than Bob (do you get my point?). In the previous app, I have Explorer published so I can copy things from outside my network inside my network. New app? Doesn't work. Totally expected, but totally sad. PLEASE, ALL of the people that worked on this "update" resign and find jobs in the custodial field. This is ABSOLUTELY the most disastrous update that has EVER been published.
