Microsoft Announces New Pen Remoting Feature In Remote Desktop Connection Client For Windows 10

Pen Remote Desktop Support

Microsoft today revealed the new pen remoting feature available in the Remote Desktop Connection client (mstsc.exe) when connecting from a Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 client to a host system running Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016.

In Windows 10, the pen is now a first class input method, at the same level as your mouse, keyboard and touch. This means you get the same great experience using it with applications in a Remote Desktop session as you do with local apps. What’s even better is that there is no special configuration needed. If your device supports pen locally and it is running Windows 10, simply connect remotely to a PC also running Windows 10 and you can write or draw in the session.

This feature is already available in the Windows Insider builds available for testing.
