Pointless App. Does not work with Servers

This app still does not work with Windows Server. I can connect to Windows 7 just fine, but any Server OS, it gives a blank blue screen and a cursor.

Lately, I have to remote into my Windows 7 machine, and then remote into the Windows Server from the Windows 7 machine I remoted into. This is very laggy and slow.

Please fix this issue.

Need a way to group clients, or a favorites group

It will be so nice to have a way to organize a group of RD clients or have a way to mark and display favorites RD clients. Typing a name in the search bar helps, but its not quick enough.
Overall, the tool is great.

Very nice

Very nice app.
If possible when disconnect, let the host back to desktop instead of login screen.
