Microsoft Remote Desktop Client For Windows

  

You can use the Remote Desktop client for Windows Desktop to access Windows apps and desktops remotely from a different Windows device. RDP, short for Remote Desktop Protocol, is a protocol developed by Microsoft. It allows you to connect to another computer using a graphical user interface, so you can interact with the remote machine. You can control a remote desktop session and delete or copy text between applications running on the host machine and the guest machine. The Windows client automatically defaults to Windows Virtual Desktop (classic). However, if the client detects additional Azure Resource Manager resources, it adds them automatically or notifies the user that they're available.
