Need 1080p resolution on iPadOS

Please add 1080p resolution as this is a standard resolution and will be helpful when connecting an external display.

Doesn't work.

Like the title says. Doesn't work. Next time I will buy a mac.

Thanks for the response MS and I did install the assistant tool and that gave me an error that Windows 10 Home Edition is not compatible. Very nice since MS wants windows 10 on all devices.

Looks like you are heaving issues setting up your PC to work remotely. Download our set-up tool on your Windows PC that helps you to figure out wether you have the right edition of Windows and if your PC is configured correctly: In order to test your connection we recommend to have both devices on the same network. If you are connecting from the internet use you public IP address.
