Windows 10 Remote Desktop Won't Copy/Paste Files from Remote to Local

I recently purchased a Surface 3 Pro with Windows 10 and unable to Copy and Paste file to a from the Remote to the Local and back. I copy the file on the remote but paste is greyed out on the local side but can still paste on the remote side. I've used RDP on every Windows OS up through Window 8.1 but I can't figure this one out.

Remote Desktop allies copy/paste of text between local and remote session, I do not believe it ever allowed copying if a file in this way.  You can not place a file in the clipboard.

What you might want to consider is attaching local resource, HD, to the remote session. At that point you will gave a \\tsclient\driveletter to reflect the source HD.

Have you tried RDP icon properties
see the Local resources tab and tick  "Clipboard" and "Drives"

I don't think that is Windows 10 in your attached picture unless there is a "Classic" Mode. If I could figure out how to use Print-Screen (Since the on-screen keyboard, the surface Keyboard and another Bluetooth keyboard don't have that key (or the end/home keys) and the snipping tool closes the properties box when I open it, I'd send you pictures.

I've always copied/pasted through the interface at least since Windows XP including Vista, 7 and 8.1. You just select the files or files you want to copy, select copy or CTRL-C find the target folder on the remote and select Paste CTRL-V. Similar to how you would do it in VM. Give it a try.

I went to the Microsoft Store and they showed me there are 2 different versions of Remote Desktop in Windows 10. One that is the classic RDP Client and the other a scaled down more visual version

Two comments: the version from the store should not be better, yours seems to be broken. @Arnold: this has been possible starting with vista/server 2008.

The store didn't have a different version, they just showed me that Windows 10 has 2 versions of RDP now. If you search from the start menu, you will see them both.
