On the Extreme Windows Blog, Garvin Gear is explaining a particularity of Client Hyper-V in Windows 8.1 – the Enhanced Session Mode. As Garvin observes, the Enhanced session mode brings following new capabilities for Virtual Machine Connections: Display Configuration, Audio redirection
Printer redirection, Full clipboard support (improved over limited prior-generation clipboard support), Smart Card support, USB Device redirection, Drive redirection, Redirection for supported Plug and Play devices.

The best news: you don’t need a network connection to the VM session like you would with Remote Desktop Connection. Enhanced Session Mode is enabled by default on Windows 8.1.
