Jump Desktop for Mac 8.9.23

In this update, notable improvements have been made in handling connection windows in 'Displays in Separate Windows' mode. The strategy now opts to reuse existing windows instead of closing and re-opening them. This change is particularly beneficial when using virtual monitors.

Stylus remoting has undergone a significant upgrade, delivering precision and accuracy like never before. An option to disable stylus remoting on the client side has been added as well. To disable stylus remoting, connect to the machine and click Remote => Uncheck Stylus.

Compatibility with Adobe Photoshop has been enhanced, specifically in the handling of mouse cursors.

Various stability and performance enhancements have been implemented.

Your feedback is invaluable. Please don't hesitate to reach out to support@jumpdesktop.com if you have any questions.

Privacy Mode for Fluid

Privacy Mode for Fluid blanks out the host machine's physical displays and blocks inputs from physical keyboard and mice attached to the machine. Privacy mode will also automatically lock computer after a user's remote session ends. This is perfect for when you need to remotely work on sensitive documents and media. Great for shared environments and hybrid work. 

To enable privacy mode connect to your machine and click Remote -> Privacy Mode.

Teams users can also enforce Privacy Mode via Connect Settings:

Privacy Mode is currently available when connecting from a Mac to a Windows or Mac machine.

Virtual Displays

Virtual Displays for Fluid lets you extend your remote session beyond the physical limits of your host's displays. You can now create up to 4 virtual displays during a remote session (see below for limitations). 

Virtual displays support arbitrary resolutions and can match your local display layout perfectly. This is perfect for working with multiple monitors without having to worry about how many monitors are attached to the remote host. Virtual Monitors also support Retina mode for extra clarity! 

To get started: 

Connect to your machine and click Displays -> Virtual Monitor and select the number of virtual displays to use. Once virtual displays are engaged Jump will replace the host's physical monitors with virtual monitors. You can resize virtual monitors by simply resizing your local Jump Desktop windows.


Virtual Monitor support current works when connecting from a Mac to a Windows 10 or macOS 10.14+ machine. A Teams Enterprise subscription is required to enable 2 or more virtual monitors.
