Derick St-Hilaire

Hello there! My name is Derick St-Hilaire, and I’m the Salesforce Administrator here at Devolutions. I’m one of the more experienced employees here at Devolutions, and it has been amazing to see the company and community grow over the years. My primary responsibilities include managing our Salesforce platform, and working closely with our strategic partners and customers. I also oversee the management of Devolutions Force, which is our VIP Advocate Community. Academically, I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. When I’m not working, I enjoy camping, walking my dog, playing video games, and I’m a huge movie fan — including the Star Wars franchise of course. If you would like to join Devolutions Force, or if you wish to get in touch, then you are welcome to contact me directly at

[New Feature Spotlight] Live Thumbnails in Remote Desktop Manager for Linux

Thumbnails are good things because they tell us at a glance what something looks like — and we can determine whether it’s worth our time to drill down and learn more. But do you know what’s even better than thumbnails? LIVE THUMBNAILS! And I’m delighted to announce that we’ve added these to Remote Desktop Manager 2021.1 for Linux.

Thumbnail Night Live

The live thumbnails in RDM 2021.1 for Linux are not static snapshots. They are dynamic, interactive clickable sessions. For example, if you need to launch commands or update multiple servers simultaneously, you can do so directly from the Live Thumbnails tab without ever changing windows. (Please note that at the current time, this feature is available when launching an Apple Remote Desktop, VNC, or Microsoft RDP sessions.)

Creating Live Thumbnails

Start by clicking Thumbnails from the View menu.

Then, to create an interactive clickable session, just press the play button located on the bottom right.
And that’s all there is to it! You’ll be able to keep an eye on what’s happening with your sessions, which helps you save time and effort.
