Microsoft Launches Remote Desktop App for Mac 10 with New UI
Microsoft has recently released a major update for the Remote Desktop app for macOS, rolling out not only a new design, but also several new features enabled in a remote session.
The first thing you’ll notice when updating Remote Desktop for Mac to version 10 is the new UI. Microsoft has focused specifically on making the app look more modern and to align it with the design of the operating system, so you’ll now see flat thumbnails in the main window to let you quickly connect to saved clients.
Furthermore, Microsoft has extended the list of device redirections in the remote session, so while previously you were allowed to redirect a printer, you can now do the same thing for your local microphone and smart cards.
“Please note that you can’t use a redirected smart card to sign into your remote PC. The redirected smart card isn’t available until after you sign in,” Microsoft explains.
