Is there a limitation on number of characters that will be displayed on the RemoteApp shortcut? because you have to hoover over it to view the full display name.

The limit is not hardcoded, it depends on a lot of factors like font size, font face, DPI, text scale, word breaks, proportional fonts, the width of the chars in the text (will show more “i" than “w”),
In the next release of Windows Desktop Client, it'll allow you to toggle tile/list view, list view will be able to show over 200 characters. Stay tune!

The tile view just released V1.2.1521.0. Please check it out: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/connect-windows-7-10

@Soo Kuan Teo Thank you!
