        • switching through applications alt+tab

          On the iphone it's possible to 'hold' the alt button and press tab multiple times to switch through multiple applications.
          For some reason this not possible on a lumia, because it won't hold the alt tab.
          Is this a bug of is it just not possible on the windows mobile version of the app?

          Greets,
          Regillio

          • 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

            • 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.

              • Import a list of computers

                Import a CSV or text file with list of computers, groups, login accounts etc. I manage over 200 VM's and I refuse point blank to sit there and create them all manually. The rest of my team also manage the same VMs, so I could pass the text file to them or have the ablity to export a "configuration" excluding passwords of course.

                  • 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…

                                    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.

                                          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.
