I've been running into an issue with screen re-draws on both Windows 10 and 11 RDP sessions.  I happened to check the memory usage of the Microsoft Remote Desktop client on my local PC and it was over 2GB.  Once I kill it and go back in, everything is fine for a few hours.

How do we get support for this client?  It's the one you download from Microsoft directly, not from the Windows Store.

 

This isn't an AVD related issue, but I haven't been able to find any support section for the client.
