Microsoft HTML5 client for RDS (RD Web Client) reached general availability!

imageGreat news, the Microsoft RD Web Client reached general availability today! This means we can now start using a modern browser to access published Desktops and Applications based on HTML5. I have been following the RD Web Client since very early private preview stages and it’s great to see the 1st release out there now!

An overview of the articles I published on this topic over the past year:

January 2018
HTML5 client for Microsoft Remote Desktop Services 2016: Remote Desktop Web Client

March 2018
Microsoft HTML5 client public preview now available!

July 2018
New logon experience for RDS HTML5 client, with SSO! (and close to general availability)

The PowerShell CmdLet Install-RDWebClientPackage will automatically download the latest version of the client. I have already updated my lab;


This is the first version of the RD Web Client but the product team is already working on new features and improvements. One of the features I hear requested a lot is the ability to provide direct links to individual RemoteApps. This is referred to as Deep Linking and allows you to add links to for example the Office365 App Launcher, SharePoint or other 3rd party Application Launchers. You can vote for this feature here
