Switching between application in connections
To switch (ALT+TAB) between applications in the same connection to Clientless RDP (window). Use the application button. If this button is not present, please raise a Clientless RDP Update ticket.
Due to browser restrictions it is not possible to redirect the printer(s) inside the Clientless RDP session and print documents within the session (CTRL+P). However, you can download files as PDF. When saved on your device locally, you are able to print it.
To share documents in the Clientless RDP connection you can use Drag and Drop as well as copy and paste. Copy and paste will only work with text and not with files.
Bear in mind that the performance is not optimal when sharing files via a Clientless RDP connection.
These files are stored on the Clientless RDP machine. There can be stored a maximum of 5GB. But keep in mind, this isn't for storage purposes.
When you want to resize the remote app via the full screen button, it does not save the size of the app the next time you open this app.

Do multiple screens work in Clientless RDP?
No, due to the limitation of the browser its not possible to connect multiple screens in one Clientless RDP session.
Is it possible to have multiple Remote Desktop sessions for a single user at the same time?
This is possible, depending on the RDS configuration as we rely on these settings. For allowing concurrent user sessions you need to change the terminal server settings in the registry on the server itself. When a user is allowed to have multiple sessions, applications can be opened in separate windows/tabs.
