This morning we released the March update of the Windows Desktop client (MSRDC) to all users.

 

The What’s New for this release will be available online soon:

  • Renamed the "Update" action for Workspaces to "Refresh" for consistency with other Remote Desktop clients.
  • You can now refresh a Workspace directly from its context menu.
  • Manually refreshing a Workspace now ensures all local content is updated.
  • You can now reset the client's user data from the About page without needing to uninstall the app.
  • You can also reset the client's user data using msrdcw.exe /reset with an optional /f parameter to skip the prompt.
  • We now automatically look for a client update when navigating to the About page.
  • Updated the color of the buttons for consistency.

You can get on the Beta releases train, referred to as the Insiders user group to get releases 2 weeks early and provide feedback to ensure a smooth release. It's encouraged that all companies have some users on the Insiders group.

 

Follow the steps here to set the policy to switch the client to Insiders:

I just found out about this as it was a related conversation to another post. This and the virtual desktops within Windows are called the same thing. Will virtual desktops in Windows be renamed to workspaces, desks or spaces?
