Today, we are announcing the general availability of the Remote Desktop web client for Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019 Preview. With a few simple PowerShell cmdlets, the client can be added to an existing Remote Desktop Services deployment, side by side with the RDWeb role. This first release of the web client contains a core set of features to get you started in providing a simple, no-install, consistent cross-platform solution to end users who don’t need some of the more advanced features from a native client. The following features are currently available:
The web client is supported on Edge, IE11+, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers for desktop platforms like Windows, macOS, Chromebook, and Linux.
Head over to our installation instructions page to learn about the new PowerShell cmdlets now available in the gallery. These cmdlets make it easy to deploy, configure, and maintain the web client.
