Parallels Remote Application Server is a comprehensive virtual application and desktop delivery solution that allows employees to access and use applications and data from any device. In past blogs, we have talked about Parallels RAS features and licensing.

Today, we’d like to walk you through Parallels RDP Client peculiarities and shed some light on some of the new features of version 15.5.

When you start the RDP Client, you will notice the following:
