Scale session windows to whatever size fits you—the screen is resized automatically. Enter full screen mode and feel like you're actually at the computer. The clipboard is automatically synchronized between CoRD and the server. For system administrators, CoRD creates a simpler workflow by allowing you to save server information, then quickly connect to that server by using HotKeys or the server drawer.
This makes quickly connecting to a specific server easy, even when managing many servers. This is an invaluable tool. Clean user interface: The interface is decidedly Mac-friendly, offering a range of tools that can quick-start popular Windows programs or folders that you use frequently on your PC.
Whether you're booting up Remote Desktop quickly to access your machine or you're using it for long work sessions, the layout of the tools is effective. Limited display options: The display options can be limited at times, with dock and menu hide options not available in certain configurations. Multiscreen support sometimes causes issues when you switch back to single-screen use, which can be frustrating when you're managing multiple apps or switching between interfaces.
Microsoft Remote Desktop for Mac is a useful free tool that allows you to access your Windows programs and files from a remote Mac. That alone is reason enough to download it, if you work on both systems and need to move files between them often. Remote Desktop is not as robust as other paid tools, but for infrequent transfers or very basic needs, it gets the job done.

Have been using this app for a few years. Great for working remotely on a Windows machine using your Mac. Except for the latest update, which disabled alt key combinations, working remotely on my Mac is identical to working directly on my Windows machine with an Apple wireless keyboard.
As noted in the "Pros," the latest update killed alt key combinations. So, for example, one cannot use alt key combinations to navigate within a dialog box in Microsoft Word. As I use key combinations frequently, this is a huge annoyance. In MS Office applications one can access the ribbon commands using the alt key, but one must first press the alt key, let go, and then press the second key instead of pressing them both simultaneously. I would give it 5 stars but for the annoying alt key problem. Seems like a minor thing, but I use the alt key all the time.
Read reply 1. After the first patch, it just kept on freezing after a while. The timing seems to be random but it always happens after I switch to other windows. It's really annoying! And the "Use all monitors" option is confusing when I use multiple screens.
I don't want it but it's on by default. Switching back to full screen doesn't fit the whole screen. I get the annoying scroll bar on the right side of the RDP window. I hope they downgrade it back to the previous version. It's infuriating when I lose connection or it freezes. The features are kinda simple but still, it feels like this wasn't tested thoroughly at all.
It disconnects all the time. So it makes working remotely really frustrating. This product could do with an overhaul Works infrequently, disconnects and needs some kind of update to make it more stable.

Pretty simple, does what it suppose to, feels like you'e really working on that pc machine remotely. Make sure to launch in full screen mode, had some issues working in other size window sessions. Hangs up - sometimes from the very start of the remote session and you have to disconnect and reconnect again.
For me only works on my Mac Air in 32 bit mode - can't work it on 64 bit mode. Have had it crash when disconnecting from the machine prompting the mac to do a 'report crash' window thing. I've used MRD for a long time at work to access all kinds of Microsoft systems both desktops and servers.

However, it is constantly updating and intruducing new issues and there seems to be no stability. Biggest problem I face all the time is copy-paste failing which is an absolutely critical component of the tool. Why does it work in one version and fail in the next?
Nothing changed on my Mac, just a new version of this tool that says "bug fixes" for release notes.
A more annoying problem than copy-paste failing is whenever my AD password is updated every 60 days MRD loses access to unlock my keychain. There is nothing that will let me update what password it attempts to use to unlock my keychain either so I am stuck recreating all of my credential store. Password changes are a common occurance but it appears no thought was given to how that would impact heavily-used features like storing credentials. That feature is excellent when it works but I can't trust it because every password update it fails so I am forced to manually enter credentials from other password vaults every time I log in.

I gave this 2 stars because even with these flaws it is still better than the RDP client in windows which makes absolutely 0 sense. I used it often, using both Active Directory logins and local logins. Did mass software installs on multiple machines simultaneously all remotely from the app. This one I feel like runs even faster and smoother than the last one!
Great job, devs. I also can see on here that the devs are responding to many of the often unbelievably whiny and uppity complaints on this review page, often proving the customer wrong or letting them know that their desired feature is forthcoming.
