Microsoft Remote Desktop macOS client doesn't send correct keyboard layout?

I'm using the macOS remote desktop client to connect to a windows machine, but every time i sign in the "us" keyboard layout is automatically selected. My macOS keyboard layout is "us-international" so i'm expecting that layout to also be used on the remote desktop. I now have to create a registry key Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout\IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout with the value 1.
Is there a better solution that doesn't ignore layout changes for other users connecting to this machine? Or a way to make the macOS remote desktop client select the correct layout so that it also works correctly when i connect to different machines?

Hello @mennovink-5269

Changing the keyboard settings is a user specific setting. This means, that whenever you change this, it changes for the currently logged in user only.

If you want to set the keyboards' layout that is used before, you can modify the keyboard layouts under the following registry HKEY_USERS.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Preload.
