  • I figured it out.  Thank you for the response.

    The issue was not knowing how file transfer worked in the Windows Store client.  With the older Windows Desktop Client, the local drives would show up in remote sessions' File Explorer's tree view panel.  This allowed you to open your local drives from the remote system using File Explorer.  The new Windows Store app doesn't work that way.

    When I saw your point #3 above.  I realized the transfer is done as a Copy and Paste through the right click menu's.

    Just in case anyone else needs detail steps it's as follows:

    1. Right click the file you want to transfer
    2. Choose Copy from the menu
    3. Right click the folder (or desktop) you want to transfer to 
    4. Choose Paste

    It may be useful to others if you added some verbiage on how to transfer files on the online help page at:
