This is actually a contribution to this question: Remote Desktop intermittently freezing but I can't post on that one due to having just registered

Host: Windows 10 version 2004 (insider preview) Client: MacOS 10.14.6, Microsoft RDP Client 10.3.9 Devices are on same physical LAN, different VLANs

Anyway, I am not able to apply the suggested fixes because my client is a Mac. For me at least it occurs whenever a dialog box box pops up. I think it somehow has to do with focus being shifted without user input. I have no idea what significance that might have vis-a-vis RDP, but I am able replicate it pretty reliably

The issue seems to be with the audio driver. When the dialogue box appears, it usually comes with a sound. So you have to disable the audio in the RDP client.


  • Right-click on the particular RDP client in the list
  • Click "Edit"
  • Click "Devices & Audio"
  • At the section "Play Sound", choose "Never"
  • This works. My scenario: I have multiple remote Windows 10 pro, and latest Microsoft Remote Desktop app on MacOS (Ventura, but symptom was present before Ventura). I suggest OP accept answer.
