Insert Key


A lot of people need Insert Key in your RDP APP. Mayby as a shortcut?

Stop updating this app all the time!

Evil Vir

It’s a great, useful app but really can’t you just update it once for good, and not give minor fixes all the time? This is only app I have that has constant blue dot beside it’s icon - haven’t yet used version 8.0.10 and now it’s 8.0.18 and I fear that tomorow will bring 8.0.19 with message „changed spacing between icons in toolbar”. Give it a break, join some updates and then release!

Allow key mappings

Wasil rafal

Great app but only one thing is missing - allow us to map crtl to command because when I compy something from Safari I use command+c and when want to paste to RDP I need to use crtl+v and this switching drives me crazy and wastes my time.
