      • 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.

              • Multiple Desktops

                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.

                • 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...

                  • Add a "Save" button in "Settings"

                    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.

                        • Change the Name in the Windows App Store until it works like Remote Desktop

                          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…

                          • Remote no longer working after last update.

                            I can only remote to a desktop that is located under the same network connection after the last update. I've had to go back to using the Windows Remote Desktop connection to connect when I'm working from home.
