  1. Fix audio quality regression and allow customizing audio quality

    Default audio quality has very clearly regressed since the older (non-preview) version of the app. Please fix this.

    Also, allow us to customize audio quality by exposing the audioqualitymode parameter in the UI: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff393679(v=ws.10).aspx

      • Allow navigation away from full screen session without mouse input

        At the moment, if my session is in full screen, I need to use my mouse to minimize it before I can Alt Tab to other windows on my host. It would be nice to be able to either:
        a) Have a new alt tab (e.g. alt shift tab) that will allow me to switch between windows on the host
        b) Have a keyboard short cut that stops keyboard capture on the remote machine so I can then alt tab between host apps. This could also allow me to control my music etc without having to leave the remote session.

          • 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.

            • Resolution Resize from Phone Needs Fixing

              The old 8.1 app took maybe 2-4 seconds to launch, and sized some windows down to fit on screen. This is despite my phone being 2560x1440, with a PC at on 1920x1200. This should fit, no problem, but would make for small text and other targets like buttons and icons.

              The new UWP app resizes everything from the taskbar to the background, and every window. It takes about 10 seconds to get going each time, and when resuming use from the PC again, the entire process reverses, and all windows, icons, etc. are tiny and out of place, requiring manual…

                  • Keyboard input selection for RD

                    Some times its faster jus to type the IP address or the nickname of the RD instead of using the mouse. I would like to have an input section for that.

                      • Suppress "another user has logged in" modal dialogue.

                        These days one person can have multiple devices that are capable of being RDP client. So, to the same personal RDP server, I connect using two of my tablets, one laptop, one desktop, and a phone (not at the same time). It is a personal server, so only I use it. And when "another user has logged in" happen, it just really mean I connected to it from a different device. But still, RDP client keeps showing annoying modal dialog box for it. There should be a way to suppress this kind of message.

                          • Stop breaking Remote Desktop.

                            I've been using Remote Desktop for many months to connect to my Linux Apache servers. Now I get a message that says "Couldn't connect. . . . . protocol error."

                            What happened?

                              The new update is so bad compared to the old version. You can no longer have multiple desktops open in the same window! What a joke.

                                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...

                                  This is a terrible upgrade. Please add a "Save" button in the "Settings" section. For example, when choosing my gateway server and username there's doesn't appear to be an obvious way to save the settings and the settings do not save. Now all my RDS apps are missing.

                                  • 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.

                                        We keep having users downloading this on their Windows 10 machines thinking it's an updated version of the Windows version Microsoft Remote Desktop - only to drive us crazy when they can't do file save to the desktop from the server as the built in WIndows version does. So either remove this from the Windows Store for Windows 10 download - or clearly label it as something different like "Universal Remote Desktop" with a clear warning that it can't do all the functions.

                                        FWIW Copy and Paste of documents is not a particularly good alternative to File Access unless you…
