As the name implies, Microsoft Remote Desktop is a Mac utility that helps users to remotely connect to PCs or virtual applications. This way, users can access data from their computers more easily.
The app is extremely easy to install and the operation lasts under one minute. The GUI is intuitive and this makes the navigation through the menu quite pleasing. There are no laggy moments or clunky buttons, but there could've been some skin variations.

When it comes to its features, Microsoft Remote Desktop allows individuals to access and manage resources published by the admin. Moreover, the connection operation is done through a Remote Desktop Gateway, that provides high security to data and applications.

Additionally, the app can be used to perform audio and video streaming. Besides this, users can redirect folders and local devices, like microphones and cameras.

Overall, Microsoft Remote Desktop is a reliable app, but it does come with some minor cons, such as inconsistent Command-W or random disconnections.

Dear Users!

We apologize for the inconvenience caused, but the problem with the incorrect version displayed in the client is caused by the wrong version number originally used in the configurations by the developer of the application.

I have the same issue. I have the latest version installed (now Version 8.0.9 - Build 25073) and Informer is telling me I have 8.0.25073 and need to upgrade to 8.0.7. Informer is missing the 9 in the version number installed on my Mac.

The current version of this software is 8.0.6 (24869), which I have installed. Informer is detecting incorrectly that I need the update because its version is missing the "6".
