Customer Reviews

No support for left handers?

This app does what it says on the tin more or less, however an important feature seems to be missing for the left handed among us, that is, the ability to swap the mouse buttons in the remote desktop session. I certainly couldn’t find such an option anywhere, if it is there is it well hidden. The old “Remote Desktop Connection For Mac” app had the ability to do this, under keyboard preferences you could swap primary and secondary mouse buttons. But not in this app (in fact this app's “preferences” are too basic and offer very little user customisation and control). This seems a big oversight.
