Remote Desktop Windows 10 Adds 2017 Features

The Remote Desktop App from Microsoft has been in a preview mode for sometime, but the app constantly gets new features added. The April 2017 list of new features though, might make the RDP app more useful for many users and admins.

The Microsoft Remote Desktop Preview app is free from Microsoft, and it allows users to connect to desktops anywhere in the planet with the app via RDP. The app itself started off early, and has improved over the months for Windows 10.
