STILL broken on dual screens!

This is the third or fourth update that has utterly failed to address this issue...

Not everyone has Apple’s stupid “DIsplays have separate spaces” enabled. I want my dual displays to act like one large screen.

When I saw that they had allegedly fixed ‘full screen issues’ I was hopeful. Nope. It was even worse.

Now not only is my second screen black, the display on the first screen is down off the bootom of the mac’s display by a good two inches. Windows is remarkably useless if you cannot access the task bar!

Fortunately I learned my lesson and zipped up a copy of 8.0.9, which is the last functional version, as I need this app do my job.

Also since Microspft pffers NO bug reporting whatsoever for this application, I have to report this on the App store. The APPLE App store...

There’s a reason people hate this company and thier craptacular products :-(

Nice basic RDP client, but...

Folder redirection appears to be broken in this release, and I think it has been for a while. You can enable redirection, give your folder a name, point the client to the path you want shared with the RDP server, and the folder never shows up under My Computer on the remote system, and it never shows up under \\tsclient. I know MS and Apple don’t get along, but this is just junk.

MAC RDP version 8.0.15 "Whats New" pop up windows

I keep getting the What's New window every time I launch MS RDP for Mac. I have uninstalled and re-installed completely and using the MAC app store of course. But with this version 8.0.15 I keep getting the What's New. Even if I uncheck the "Don't show this again" check box it keeps coming up every time I launch it. Request for fix.
