Microsoft has gotten a ton of feedback from their Remote Desktop web client public preview  to remove the credentials prompt when launching a connection.  That said, they decided to add that into the Remote Desktop preview before general availability and as of Monday a new version (0.9.0) was available for validation and feedback.

Microsoft has also updated the sign-in experience:

The client also moved to a new URL as part of the update: https://<server FQDN>/RDWeb/webclient/index.html.

Information about the full list of changes in the new release can be found on the What’s new for the Remote Desktop web client? page.


Note: If you’re already using the public preview, there are a few additional steps needed to move to 0.9.0:

  • Uninstall the client and module.
  • Install the new module.
  • Deploy the broker cert.
  • Download and publish the new client.

All of these steps can be found in the installation instructions.

Remote Desktop Preview and What to do!

Update your web client to version 0.9.0 or give the client a first look by following the documentation to install and publish the web client using PowerShell. The client can be deployed in production and feedback can be sent to the product team using the Support Email on the About page.

The web client is supported on both Windows Server 2016 and the upcoming Windows Server 2019 now available in the Insider program.
