Great effort & easy to set up, but lacking basic features

This was a breeze to set up. I just followed the instructions and was able to remotely access my MacBook Air from my iPad within minutes. The only problem, however, is that the on-screen keyboard within the app as well as BT keyboard support is VERY limited. How limited, you ask? Well, the arrow keys don't work, so typing is kind of wonky and interrupted with frequent tapping to put the cursor where you want it. Pressing delete will work as a backspace, but pressing fn+delete does not work, neither do any other fn+ shortcuts. Other shortcuts like CMD+C or ctrl+C to copy/paste don't work either. Google, thanks for the free product, but please update keyboard support! Thanks.

I have been using this app for a while now and it has been incredibly useful in so many situations but there is one thing that bugs me so much; The app needs is own custom Keyboard, a semi transparent, customizable keyboard. It bugs me quite a bit that they haven't thought to do it yet because it is nessessary! How is anyone supposed to use Esc or any of the other essential keys?! A 4 layer keyboard would be great, first layer has the letters, backspace, Shift/CapsLock, space bar, return/enter and the main punctuation marks ( like most regular keyboards); And again like most keyboards there would be a second and third layer of numbers and other symbols and then ANOTHER layer that has all the Esc, Ctrl, Shift, Windows, Tab, Print Screen, F1-F12 buttons among others. That would really bring it all together, and instead of having it integrated make it a custom Keyboard that you have to enable in settings and all that but have its option settings in the app.
I hope you would take this suggestion into consideration because it would be so helpful to most of not all users of the Chrome Remote Desktop app.

Thank you,
A loyal customer.

Missing functionality

I want to start by saying that I love the potential an app like this brings, being able to access my computer from anywhere, even if it is just to check a date or a password etc. However, the app isn’t at all useful to me because of one thing: there is no option to change display.

For some reason when I connect to my desktop it defaults to showing the second monitor only. That’s not useful because when I open windows they default to the primary window, and guess what, I can’t see them. I’ve googled this problem and everyone says the solution is to change which monitor to display. Apparently that option isn’t there anymore. The only display option I have is to resize desktop to fit.

Because of this, I have to rate it 1 star because it is simply UNUSABLE for me in its current state. And no I’m not going to just unplug my second monitor every time I walk away from my computer in case I need to connect with Remote Desktop. Because of Googles track record with product support, this will never get fixed and thus I will never use this product.
