Shift key no longer working

Can't use the shift key in the app, thus you have to use caps lock key for anything case sensitive.

Broken since Windows 10 millennial update

I used to love this app! But now when I put it in a maximized screen the keyboard modifier keys do not work; e.g. I can only get lower case letters. Same result on three different machines.

Store doesn't send me update to latest Win10 version, instead I have old win8.1 version

Loved it but now it has some issues

I am going to copy what someone else said because basically I am having the same issue and it is a pain: "Since the compulsory Windows 10 Anniversary Update, the Shift and Ctrl keys on both sides have stopped functioning when using this app. The Alt keys still work for me. The Caps Lock still works so I can make capital letters, but I can't send any Ctrl- or Shift- key combinations, which is a crucial function. Please fix this. Before this, it had been working very well."

Can't copy and paste between machines

Since the anniversary update, I am unable to copy/paste between my local machine and my remotely connected machine. It's not just a keyboard shortcut issue...this is even when I do a right click and select "copy" or "paste" doesn't work! It's pretty much killed my productivity since I have to manually type in URLs or documents now.




Platform: PC

so much potential

nice interface, easy to understand BUT so many things not working. can't connect to multiple PCs at one time, as a dev, this is worrisome. file copy over RDP is not working (what happened MS??). And more disturbing, it's slower than the plain old remote desktop tool. not sure what was up with that




Platform: PC

It Sucks After Update

After the update, the shift keys stopped working, I cannot cut and paste to and from the clipboard, and most of all the task switching feature no longer works! Once was a great tool has been ruined by another update!

Need To Support Multiple Sessions

This feature is even on Android/iPhone. As others have mentioned, this is a must and should be easy to add to Win10.
