Great tool

Remote Desktop is a great tool for remotely managing various servers and PC's. The only caviat is that it looks old (sorry). Since I'm writing this much text I believe a human will actually read it :)
Please update the UI to look more modern.
To whomever is reading this: Have a wonderful day!

Does not suit my needs

Just tried this new 10 on my 2017 Macbook Pro 13” with 2 external monitors attached.

It seemed that the user-interface had been given more thought, which is a plus, but when I launched a RDP-session, it retained the resolution of the builtin-screen (1400x900), even though the app was running on one of the external monitors (2560x1440). No matter what I did, I could not get it to default to full screen. This is not a problem with version 8, using the exact same settings, as the settings are drawn from a remote ressource.
When I tried to revert to version 8, something when wrong, as version 8 no longer could “remember” my remote ressources. I had to power off the laptop og start fresh, before it started acting normal again.

I will not recommend this version in its current state.
