    "Freezes All The Time!"

    January 1, 2014  |   By jianthe

    Version: Microsoft Remote Desktop 8.0.2

    Pros

    The UI to manage connections is really handy.

    Cons

    After the first patch, it just kept on freezing after a while. The timing seems to be random but it always happens after I switch to other windows. It's really annoying!

    And the "Use all monitors" option is confusing when I use multiple screens. I don't want it but it's on by default.

    Switching back to full screen doesn't fit the whole screen. I get the annoying scroll bar on the right side of the RDP window.

    Summary

    I hope they downgrade it back to the previous version. It's infuriating when I lose connection or it freezes. The features are kinda simple but still, it feels like this wasn't tested thoroughly at all.
