AnyDesk 2.2.0


AnyDesk is a new remote desktop system and enables users to access their data, images, videos and applications from anywhere and at any time, and also to share it with others. AnyDesk is the first remote desktop software that doesn't require you to think about what you can do. CAD, video editing or simply working comfortably with an office suite for hours are just a few examples. AnyDesk is designed for modern multi-core CPUs. Most of AnyDesk's image processing is done con­currently. This way, AnyDesk can uti­lize up to 90% of.

Conventional screen sharing and remote desk­top applications are based on outdated com­pression techniques (X11, RDP, VNC) or on codecs that were designed for photos (JPEG) or video mate­rial (H.264). AnyDesk closes this gap by intro­ducing DeskRT, a video codec specifically designed for graphi­cal user inter­faces. Exploi­ting the special proper­ties of GUI image data (e.g. large areas of the same colour, high con­trasts, sharp edges, repeating patterns in the time and spatial domain, or the linear trans­lation of image con­tents), DeskRT is able to bring about very high image quality and low res­ponse times for the user.

Just one megabyte - downloaded in a glimpse, sent via email, or fired up from your USB drive, AnyDesk will turn any desktop into your desktop in se­conds. No administrative privileges or installation needed.

AnyDesk 2.2.0 release notes:

Fixed Bugs

  • Fixed a crash which occured when the monitor was switched several times in Win 8/10.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause AnyDesk to transmit inefficiently (low fps) when the remote machine was running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. This also could lead to a slowdown of the target machine.
  • The remote cursor was not rendered correctly when the Direct Draw render mode was selected. The Direct Draw renderer now draws the remote cursor as intended.
  • A black image was shown instead of the remote screen in certain cases when "Use fast render method" was selected in the view options. The image is rendered normally now if this mode is selected.
  • If a 16 bpp mode is selected, the Direct Draw renderer now tests if a 32 bpp mode is supported before falling back to the gdi renderer when the lower mode is not supported by the hardware. The d3d renderer now supports 16 bpp colour depth as well and uses the same fallback mechanism.
  • In some cases, AnyDesk did not transmit any image (black image) when the screen was rotated in Windows 7 with Aero enabled.
  • he base64 password feature for anydesk: links did not work with all configurations.
  • The forbidden cursor is displayed correctly again.
  • The grey tray icon indicating that the AnyDesk service is not running is displayed correctly again.
  • Under certain conditions, connections to a machine failed with "desk_rt_ipc_error". This occured when AnyDesk was not installed. Added a workaround for these machines.
  • AnyDesk now uses the monitor which is currently displaying the AnyDesk window when going to fullscreen mode.
  • AnyDesk is now scaled correctly with high dpi settings.
  • AnyDesk now correctly terminates the session when it is stopped during fullscreen mode.

New Features

  • AnyDesk now supports keyboard translation. If your keyboard layout is different from the keyboard layout of the remote user, AnyDesk can translate the keys. This enables you to type special characters on your keyboard regardless if the remote keyboard supports them. You can disable this feature in the main menu in case you want raw key to be transmitted. This is useful for example for playing games which depend on the hardware key code.
  • Select "Auto-Adjust resolution" from the main menu during a session in order to change the remote screen resolution to fit the dimensions of your local AnyDesk window. You can use this feature as often as needed, for example after you maximized the AnyDesk window. After the session ends, the remote resolution is restored to the original mode.
  • Added privacy tab to user settings. You can now decide what to broadcast, your windows user name or a custom one, your windows account image, a custom one or none.
