  1. Windows Desktop client list of connections instead of icons

    In the Windows Desktop client (Remote Desktop for WVD), there appears to be a limit of 15 characters in a connection name before it gets truncated and ... is added. This causes names to be indistinguishable if they are long, and a primary descriptor is at the end. For example:
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-EastUS
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-WestUS
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-NorEuro
    CompanyName-Department-Dev-SouthEast
    etc...

    The only way to see the available connections is by icon. Add functionality in the Windows Desktop client for list view, and functionality to configure a default.

  2. Add Snip & Sketch to Win Server

    Please add the "Snip & Sketch" feature of Windows 10 to Windows Server 2019. We'd love to have this basic feature for our users working with Citrix on Windows Server.

  3. import list of machines into remote desktop (windows store)

    In remote desktop connection manager you were able to import a list of servers to use. I would love to see that feature added to the remote desktop store app.

  4. ADFS Export/Import Relying Party Trusts

    Get-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust should export a completed powershell script for Add-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust, this will solve your import issue, and make it easy for people to migrate servers, or even automate relying party migrations.

  6. Make openSSH work without it being a science project

    Installed old copSSH, worked, installed Windows openSSH, didn't work. All sorts of people on internet saying "try this" or "try that". I need to do, not try. Windows should make it seamless, that's the power of Windows over Linux. You shouldn't need a masters degree in command line options to set.

  11. Provide official download links to previous versions of Remote Desctop for Mac.

    Provide official download links to previous versions of Remote Desktop for Mac - Specifically v8. By witholding these, you are making older Macs less useful and more importantly failing to support your customers. I assume Microsoft would rather see perfectly functional machines in landfill rather than supporting sustainability. Shameful

  13. msrdc No Indication double click on jump box icon is doing anything

    When using the MSRDC.exe app it shows a set of jump box icons. When you double click one it starts to connect to a WVD server but there is zero indication anything is happening. Please provide an instant splash screen or hour glass at least so the user knows the double click was received.

  14. allow the ADFS service to start with bad certificate

    If the certificate does not auto-renew or auto-renew fails you are stuck!
    You can not run any powershell commands against adfs and you can not run the adfs manager because the service won't start so you are unable to resolve the issue and have to call Ms support.

    Hello dear support service
    Using the backup and recovery option in this application will clear the previous information.
    For example, in the first system, I have a group of systems
    After backing up and recovering in the new system, it will be removed.
    It is possible to replace them together.

  17. AGPM

    Continue support and updates for Advanced Group Policy Management. Our company uses AGPM extensively and would like to see future enhancements and support continued. If there is a replacement Microsoft product, it doesn't seem to be found.

  18. Windowed Solution

    It would be very nice if the Remote Apps opened a new instance of the app in a separate window. This would allow native app switching gestures along with Windowed Display on Chromebooks.

  19. If this ******** app is free, then why do I have to connect to the store, and then add my computer and then download to install?

    If this ******** app is free, then why do I have to connect to the store, and then add my computer and then download to install? What a productive way to do it. I do not want to use App Store if it is freeeeee, damm it... It is just a remote desktop app of yours...

  20. The new Windows 10 RemoteDesktop App messes up my keys within the session.

    On my host computer I only have one keyboard configured (US Intl) but on the remote server

    a) There is another keyboard layout (Dutch).
    b) Both layouts mess up the keys. The keyboard doesn't act as a US Intl. keyboard.

    When I use the mstsc client this problem does not occur
