  • Deprecated: Use MS Remote Desktop 10

    By M. J. Anderson
    MS Remote Desktop 8 has been deprecated and, as of the time of this writing, MS Remote Desktop 10 should be used instead. I reached this application from the Apple Store application as a recommendation in the Develop >> More Helpful Tool. Makes me a little skeptical of the quality of the other recommendations.
  • No Split screen

    By JFUCE
    Useless without split screen. THe older version wolrs correctly.
  • Great by WHY THE HECK???

    By Home synth
    1. Why the heck would the Connection Center not open up automatically every time I open the app. Heck even when I go to Window | View Connection Center, half the time I have to do that more then once just to get the Connection Center window available in order to choose a connection I want. 2. Why the heck would you make the Connection Center window not resizable? 3. Why the heck would you not persist the state of the groups? If I close a group or two that would at least keep me from having to scroll so much…SINCE THE WINDOW ISN’T RESIZABLE.
  • Better than Rel. 8, except...

    By JDG27
    Seems smoother and quicker than version 8 was except for one feature. I typically use in full screen mode. In prior version I was able to split the full screen with a Mac app. That functionality no longer seems there. Please fix this.

  • Remote Desktop 8.0

    By MacIsMyFriend
    Works Great. Recommed to all.
  • What else could you ask for?

    By JamesDaHall
    I’ve used this RDP client program for years, and while it may not have every single imaginable wiz-bang out there, and I personally wish the folders looking option did more than just one folder for everything (cough cough) This application is great, and at the end of the day it get’s the job done!

  • Use it everyday and don

    By miller4980
    I take care of a lot of remote computer installations. I don't like third party apps mainly because of security and trust. I don't really like vnc due to the setup, I use ssh for some machines and for windows, I use RDP Microsoft Remote Desktop. Any time I got bumped from a connection it was due to improper framing or damage to the data that kept the link alive. If it was a problem with my network, I fixed it (Usually encryption related issues with the tunnel ) and RD would work flawlessly again. Works incredibly well with OSX
  • Auto Scaling

    By MildMediumSpicy
    Needs auto scaling support when switching between the MBP screen and an external monitor. I have to re-open the connection to fit according to the new display size every time.
