  1. When using Japanese layout keyboard, Keyboard layout on the Remote machine is not correct.

    When using Japanese layout keyboard, Keyboard layout on the Remote machine is not correct.

    - Fail frequency is 100%.
    - Happen this issue with Win10 Pro and Windows 10 Mobile.
    - Not happen this issue with another remote access solution like VMware Horizon view.

    It seems that this issue depend on this UWP app. Could you please verify and resolve this issue? This issue is very critical for Japanese keyboard users.

    Best Regards,

        • Pointer/Cursor Accuracy Improvements for Touch

          The old 8.1 app had better pointer tracking when using touch. Currently, it moves too easily as finger pressure is released from the screen. Sometimes it even flicks/drifts from such slight movements. When target accuracy is so critical on a small screen, such small motions should be damped rather than amplified.

            • Bug: numlock status inverted upon connection

              When you connect to a remote session and you happen to have Num lock on (as having a full keyboard implies), numlock is off in the remote session, despite the keyboard light being on. You have to tab out of the RD app, numlock off, tab in the RD app and numlock on.. then it's synchronized.
              A long way to go if this is gonna become the only RD app in Windows.

              • Scale to window size like it was in the previous version

                When running in the window mode, previous version scaled the remote desktop to fit the window, now it cannot do so and puts scroll bars.

                • Allow the stipulation of specific ports

                  Allow the stipulation of specific ports (i.e. 127.0.0.2:734)
                  When using Putty we enter 127.0.0.2:734 using Remote Desktop Connection Manager and it works well. However when using Remote desktop (metro style) it fails to connect. Using Windows 10 Enterprise Edition

                  • Need a bug fix

                    The german keyboard won't work correctly.
                    You get a z if you use the y key, you'll get a ö if you need a ü, the ü is on ß key and so on...

                          • Simple switch to local desktop. Like click on top-left corner in old version!

                            In old version if I click on top-left corner I could simple switch from my desktop and the remote one.

                            In this version I have to put mouse on top edge of the screen (in fullscreen mode) click to show top bar, then click on minimize, or put and click on bottom and show my windows bar and change to my desktop..

                            It is possible to restore this old feature or, at least, add a keyboard shortcut to do this?

                            • Add Search for Saved Desktops

                              There should be a way to search through saved desktops in the Remote Desktop window. Ideally this would be a live search, filtering desktops as you type. For bonus points make saved desktops searchable from the Windows search too.

                                • New version of the App does not connect to Linux machines running XRDP anymore.

                                  The new version will not communicate with my RasperryPis running XRDP. This is a regression.
