  • Bug in exported connections??

    By The Worstest Ever
    Great tool! Tripped over one issue however. After defining multiple connections, I have exported the connections so that I can organize them in folders in the finder. I can double-click an exported file to open a connection, but when I doulbe-click a second file, the app is brought to the forground, but if fails to open a new window and the connection fails to start.
  • Decent RDP client but could be better

    By RyanFarley
    This is a nicely done RDP client, but the thing that it is missing that is a "must have" for me is the ability to quickly connect to an IP address without creating a saved connection for it. Some servers you want to save as connections, but I work with any others that are a one-time thing, or have changing IP addresses (AWS servers). I want to just click something and enter an IP address, optionally select a saved login, and connect. Even better, have that available from the menu bar.
  • From utter garbage to actually usable!

    By 904Z
    I don’t know I was so broken and distraut over the sheer number of bugs and problems that plagued both the 8.x and 10.x versions of this app, or if this is truly just an amazing update. But version 10.1.5 of RDP is absolutely amazin! And by “amazing,” I mean that things actually WORK. For the first time, reliably, in YEARS. My Remote Apps are no longer glitchy with misaligned click/pointer targets, broken dialogs, strange error messages, etc. Granted, it’s only been a day. But I’m simply amazed at the night and day difference between this version and the immediate previous version. Finally. Five stars. Don’t mess it up, Microsoft!
  • Devs are incredibly responsive

    By The Logic Stick
    Srsly. Had long chat about connectivity issue over a mixed network that they’d never seen before. Problem corrected in an update a week later. MS has really come around these last few years - great work!
  • Pointless

    By Bentley80
    I had to contact Microsoft support because I couldn’t get this to work. Come to find out, my Mac has to be on the same network as the PC. What the hell is the point of that? I want to connect to a PC in one state from a Mac in another state. I thought this could replace Team Viewer, but I guess not. I can’t understand anyone finding this program useful at all. Why would I want to remotely connect to a computer I’m sitting next to? I want to connect to a computer that is not here, that’s the point. Guess I’ll just stick to Team Viewer, as that works as it should. I just don’t get it.
  • Many regressions

    By Shapmeister
    Version 10 has lost some important capabilities from 8.0, including the ability to specify native resolution and the ability to choose whether to open in full screen mode. The interface is harder to use because more places need to be visited to establish your settings. The separation of login information from connection information is counter-intuitive and less than useful. RDP audio has never been anything to write home about, but the where did the audio settings go? On the whole, the 8.0 version offers more complete function that is easier to use. As my old boss Al Kolwicz used to say: there is a difference between “activity” and “progress”.
  • Nice upgrade

    By PapaJoe
    Good job so far. No issues to report since upgrading from v8.
  • something is wrong with display properties

    By Alpr647383
    I'm using it on MBP 13" 2017 and in any resolution the fonts are blurred and there seems to be some refresh rate off-sync which causes a severe eye strain.
  • Needs Work

    By Gposel
    I love the fact that copy and paste keys now match the Mac. But screen resolution is a problem. Using a 2017 15" MBPro and setting display to ‘Default for this display’ yeilds text that is not nearly as crisp compared with version 8. If I manually set the resolution to match the display (2880 x 1800), the desktop deosn’t fit in the window … meaning I'm forced to scroll around to see the whole desktop, and the text is still not clear. When that problem is resolved I’ll be eager to switch just for the convenience of using Mac key combos in Windows!
  • Severe Battery Drain and CPU Maxing Out ….. AWFUL

    This version is totally draining my battery and makes my CPU fan ramp up loud. In checking the energy consumption, it comes up with super high numbers. Current stats: Energy Impact: 316.9 (YIKES) Avg Energy Impact: 274.01 Real Memory: 352.6 MB Virtual Memory: 4.08 GB %CPU: 116.87 Threads: 30 Ports 402 Conext Switches 48023279 Faults: 74490698 (steadily rising, and the likely main culprit here) This is with only *2* remote desktop session running over a local network.
