Works great, free, secure and built-in to Windows 10. Just turned on the remote desktop setting in Windows and was able to use this for everything I needed. Minus one star for being a little quirk regarding using scrollbars on the far left while trying to use the in-app keyboard. The screen seems to cut off the margins when the keyboard is open.

Using this app with my Pixelbook Go. Very simple and, for the most part, works well to access my work station from home. Some issues I'm running into are using quick keys within the window, Shift sticks, Copy/Paste options are hit and miss when using them in Excel, and no way to use a dual monitor view through the window. Fix those issues, and I would say you have the best on the market.

Hello, remote desktop doesn't go into full screen mode. Bug? i.e. Although custom resolution is set to match device resolution, there is black bar on right and button side of the screen. Portrait mode is fine, the problem only occurred in landscape mode. And also this problem only start to appear in the latest version of the app. It hasn't happened before.
