Remotely control a Windows 10 PC - Perfect


I stumbled across this 'App' recently and have been using it on my 10 year old iMac, I found that it gave new life to the old girl, it remembers passwords, displays in full screen and has better resolution than my pc at the office. Ive recently started to use this on my new iMac which is running a more up to date version of OS and replaced the old RDP application that I had and its working perfectly. I don’t try transfering stuff through it - i just put files I want onto dropbox and then get to them from there. Anyway it works perfectly so it has my recommendation!

Useful and reliable tool


Use this 30-40 hrs a week for connecting to several Windows systems (Servers, PCs, 2013, 10, XP). Helps me earn my living. I’ve given it only 4 stars because:
• It’s taken to not closing down when I quit. I have to do “force quit”.
• There could be more settings. For example, I’ve not got it to recognize my Apple keyboard layout. Have to remember to swap @ and double-quote.
• I like to reserve 5 stars for outstanding excellence!
I recommend it.

Why is it so difficult to fix it and allow encrypted connections export/import


The app is working fine most of the time although there is so much room for improvement like fixing functionality that would allow export and import encrypted connections into a single file without loosing some details. I’m fed up with having to recreate all connection from scratch after reinstalling OSX.
