    Jump Desktop Support

    Hi guys. We have a new version of Jump Desktop for Windows beta (8.4.0 and later) for this which lets you do this without a workaround: Open up Jump Desktop for Windows -> File -> Settings -> Updates -> CHECK Beta updates. Then click 'Check for beta updates' and install the update.

    Once you install the beta, connect to a multi-mon machine and then click Remote -> Displays -> Displays as separate Windows. This will open up one window per remote display which you can then go full screen on individually.

    I tried the beta and it does allow both of my remote Mac monitors to show up on my local Windows monitors. Great job!

    Now I run into a different issue: Both my Windows monitors are now showing remote Mac screens in fullscreen. How do I switch back to my local Windows desktop? Is there a key or hidden menu to minimize Jump Desktop?

    It also doesn't remember my setting for separate windows. I have to enable it, exit fullscreen, drag the window to the desired monitor, make it fullscreen. Every time I run a new connection.
