Windows 10 UWP Remote Desktop App now in preview


I think this was missed in all the excitement of a new Windows 10 Mobile build being released to Windows Insiders this past Friday.

The Remote Desktop Services blog revealed yesterday that the team has released a new Universal Windows Platform build of their Remote Desktop app for Windows 10.

This is a very robust update to the previous Remote Desktop app with many features such as default user accounts for remote computers and Remote Gateway acess/management.

You can read the lengthy walk though over at the Test Drive the new Microsoft Remote Desktop Preview app for Windows 10 post at the RDS blog.

In the meantime I have a screenshot gallery here so you can see the app in action.
