Enable Copy/Paste at the Login Screen of a remote computer (Re-Requested)

Technigogo 5 years ago updated by Shawn 4 years ago 5

Over a year ago, I put in a feature request in the old forum. It got a good amount of support. You guys moved the feature request forum but you seem to have left this request out of the move. Was this on purpose? Why is this feature (let's call it a foundation requirement, shall we?) being ignored? I'm surprised you don't see the need for this basic functionality.


Here is the original request from http://forum.screenconnect.com/yaf_postst6680_Enable-Copy-Paste-at-the-Login-Screen-of-a-remote-computer.aspx


When I am logging into an unattended session and the remote computer is at a login screen, I want to be able to paste the password from my KeePass or other such source of records for the hundreds of users passwords that I have to keep track of. Typing them in is not only time consuming but lends to errors. I don't see how the copy/paste could be considered a security issue when we already have a live screenshot of every customer computer built into the software.

This was added in 5.5, I believe the forum thread to which you linked mentions the specific release note entry but if not, here:


added function to send the host clipboard as keystrokes to the guest (useful for windows logon screen)

Kristen I saw that reply. I followed the link and read the notes. I then opened a session and looked for this new functionality. I didn't find it. Please help.

This isn't really a Support forum, I recommend sending an email to help@screenconnect.com so we can take a look.
