NON app Store version available directly from Microsoft here (it also is a few versions ahead of MAS) https://macadmins.software/ this page primarily has Office downloads, but scroll down and you will see MRD. these are legit downloads, hosted on MS servers.

Even creating .rdp files on my PC and using the MRD app on my Mac to import the file results in no connection between the two devices. I just cannot fathom why this app refuses to work by manually entering the data or using the import function. If anyone knows what may be causing the problem I'd appreciate knowing how to get around it.

direct link to a beta NON APP STORE version provided by MS, this is legit. All credit and thanks to user @donikatz for pointing us in the right direction. If you are concerned about the legitimacy of this download, hockeyapp is owned by MS. https://rink.hockeyapp.net/apps/5e0c144289a51fca2d3bfa39ce7f2b06/

Microsoft RDP is good. Additionally, you may try tools like logmein, R-HUB remote support servers, TeamViewer etc. for remotely accessing computers from anwyhere anytime.

Do not use this version. Download the Microsoft Remote Desktop Beta client directly from Microsoft, currently version 8.2.27 (you'll find it online, hosted on Hockeyapp, now a division of MS). Lots of improvements including much better UI. 4* is for the beta version, not this one.

I use this application every day at least 10-15 mins, Can somebody please change the subtitle? This is just ambigous: "Connect to Windows machines."

I believe it should be: Connect to Single Windows user's Desktop on Windows workstation and / or server
