Microsoft updated Remote Desktop for Windows this week, bringing a number of significant new features.
The new update allows users to copy files between local and remote PCs, use an email address to access remote resources and allows user accounts assigned to remote resource feeds to be changed. There are also a number of bug fixes, including an actual icon showing up in the File Explorer when assigning .rdp files to Remote Desktop.
As the primary method of accessing another computer in the Windows ecosystem, these updates bring a number of quality-of-life improvements to the app. The new version, 10.1.1149.0, is available for download.
- You can now copy files between the local and remote PCs.
- Your email address can now be used to access remote resources, if enabled by your admin.
- The user account assigned to a remote resource feed can now be changed.
- When assigning .rdp files to this app, a proper icon will be shown in File Explorer instead of a blank one.
- Additional bug fixes.
