Microsoft Remote Desktop Preview App

Microsoft Remote Desktop Preview App for Windows 10

Yesterday Microsoft announced a new Remote Desktop Preview app for Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform (UWP) on the Remote Desktop Services Blog. You can get and download from the Windows Store. The new Remote Desktop Preview app has a connection center to manage your connections to Windows Clients and Windows Server. The connection center is your starting point. It allows you to easily manage your desktops. You can add new desktop connections and edit or delete existing connections. Selecting one of the desktop tiles launches the connection. It’s great to see Microsoft finally creating some great Apps for their own Universal Windows Platform.
