  • Super easy…it took me less than 2 minutes to login to my office desktop!

    By Lowbudgetfeel123
    I was skeptical due to the 3 star rating, but this has been a very easy app to use for me to login remotely to me job. I seriously took less than 2 minutes to download and login to my office desktop! Very happy with this app!
  • Was working great - till update

    By mØid
    Not sure why you keep breaking a tool that so many rely on daily. This latest version crashes (on the Mac) if I type too fast in Visual Studio on my Windows Desktop at work. I get the spinning beachball- have to exit to the Mac, force quit MRD and restart it, then reconnect. I'm finding myself doing this at least 2 or 3 times per hour! I try to type slowly, but then end up getting really focused on my work and start moving faster. I use VI so I'm typing everything and it seems to be when I'm repeating an edit over and over that it crashes MRD. This is a Productivity KILLER! Like I said it happens when I'm focused and your bug is a sure way to kill that focus - every time! I wish it were easier to revert to an older version. I was forced to update when I upgraded to Mojave and decided to start clean and re-install everything. This is the only app that makes me regret that decision!! I was on an old stable version and had been refusing to update. Sigh!
  • Brutally slow with latest versions

    By Chuck Norris 365
    Version 10.2.3 remoting to Windows 10 version 1809 are totally UNUSABLE together. Unbelievably slow. If I remote from another Windows machine, no problem. From Remote Desktop 10.2.3 -- forget it.
  • do NOT use Version 10.2.3!

    By OswegoBoy
    Huge regression in version 10.2.3, avoid at all costs. Prior version was great (the best ever, and I’ve been using this for years). But the pixelated display results make this very difficult to use, the screen is only legible if it’s maximized. I hope they fix this soon!
  • I use this a lot but I have to echo the font rendering problem from the previous review

    By Matt Kauffmann
    10.2.3 the fonts on the Windows desktop vacillate back and forth. I thought there was an issue with the server. Not sure how to capture the problem but it’s kind of an issue.
  • It really works!

    By Henn- Dawg
    Simple, clean and reliable. MS RD10 just really works. I've purchase other RD applications and found this one the easiest to use.
  • Reverted to version 8

    By Whatisupwiththisversion
    Font rendering so poor. Screens impossible to read.
  • Always Auto Hides

    By Ferdi614
    This version of remote desktop looks much nicer than the last but it doesn’t work the same. The new verison has a horrible feature where it huto aides when we load our server and its not that easy to load back up. We only use Avionte. So i don’t know how it works on other remote desktops.
  • Frequent crashes

    By mikeSLI
    I saw the same problem reported by MCnoHammer1. It crashes now when I click CTRL-C/V to do copy & paste. Also seems to occur when I CTRL-TAB to another buffer in Visual Studio on the Windows 10 VM. Up until this latest version (10.2.3), this never happened. Please fix this, as I too live in it. Update: Disable clipboard functions and it seems to be more stable. Ugh. Update: I've since rebooted my Mac (for other reasons) and re-enabled the clipboard integration. I've not seen this problem after heavy use for the last 4 days. FWIW, MS "RDIOS" team was responsive to this review and helpful trying to get repro steps from me. Upping my rating to a 4.
  • Really great app with constant improvements

    By argentini
    This app is even better than its Windows counterpart. It works seamlessly with macOS and provides advanced features like auto-zoom. Love it! Only issue I've encountered is that the remote window periodically moves to the primary display. Also, when in full-screen mode, if the screens sleep, it comes back full-screen but all its child windows are resized to be super small. It must be resizing the main RD window in sleep mode.
