still missing many features

I use both Remote Desktop for windows and for MacOS. the MacOS edition, very strangely, is much better than the windows edition. In windows edition, I can't: change the resolution the port or the IP address map local drive as network share change the display name of the connection (sorry I can't remember what are behind the IP addresses I currently use).

Very bad user experience! Hampers productivity..

I wasn't able to use both my displays when remoting in. Fullscreen also always uses only 1 of my displays. The Start button and the taskbar were not even shown in the remote session! How do you expect me to get anything done when the remoting doesn't even show the full screen real estate? Pathetic! The Settings that are exposed to the user are not useful. It is shameful that the Microsoft Remote Desktop App on a Mac works seamless (even with Phone Authentication) whereas the Windows 10 version sucks! I keep losing the session, even if the connection quality (as per the app itself) is very good!

Thank You MS!! please don't stop developing and improving your apps. This app isn't the most feature rich or intuitive, but boy does it get the job done. No need to lug around a laptop 💻 (SysAdmin), this app gets you in quick and easy to check services, restart tasks or any other duty that would otherwise suck the life out of you. -Lumia 640 XL, native VPN, TMG

App Crashes with Secondary Displays

Great program when no secondary display. However, need 2 displays while at work. Need to have this app updated to fix this issue.

Does what it should do...

Works well and the the preview version supports continuum. So it should be coming to the prod version soon.

Good start

Drag and drop with the mouse option is hard but still love the app
