Using MS RDP client Version Version 10.8.4 (2111) on OSX 13.4.1 (c) (22F770820d) running on an M2 MBP. Connecting to W11 Pro Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621.
I normally connect as above with "Use all monitors" ticked while having 3 external monitors connected via a dock and the built in display closed. Immediately after disconnecting the dock, the 3 display connection turns black with a faint outline of what was shown before, and there is no way to get back to the session, nor to close it, including after reconnecting to the dock;
1. I cannot close the connection with neither cmd+w nor cmd+q.
2. I cannot reconnect to the same session - I am not presented with a "reconnect dialog", nor can I reconnect by clicking the same session in the connection picking window, as I am simply brought back to the disabled connection.
3. I can create a new session with a different monitor configuration (e.g. "use all monitors" unticked). However, that does not trip the ghost connection and it remains "active" with no reconnect dialog presented.
I suspect that the dialog is presented somewhere offscreen and the connection becomes unresponsive waiting for a response to an invisible dialog.
It would be great to have this fixed, at least to the point when I can right click and "Quit" / Cmd+Q it, rather than "Force Quit" / Kill -9 it.
PS, the system flagged me for flooding after I tried to submit the same post a couple of times, correcting errors (I didn't realize I must tag it, initially). Seems a bit too strict given that this is the same message with corrections. If a mod sees this, perhaps a slightly more flexible policy would be more user friendly...
