I use Remote Desktop on my MacBook to connect to my workplace's Windows server and my own Windows workstation. I have several .rdp files to connect to those machines under different configurations, so I don't really need that Remote Desktop create a Default.rdp file for me. How do I prevent Remote Desktop from creating that file?

I don't think this would be possible, but I can't say for sure. – Sathya Oct 18 '10 at 14:04

you can try system properties, find a "remote" tab, uncheck the box that says "allow remote connections", this is at least on Xp, then none will be able to remote control your system, that file is not going to be created either. thanks

Excuse me if I did not make myself clear: I do want to access those Windows computers remotely. What I do not want is that the file Remote.rdp be created. Thanks anyway. – pyon Oct 17 '10 at 23:42
hups, somehow i missed the part with MacBook, from windows at least, if you disable remote control (you can still reach other windows systems) and that file is not going to be created, sorry as I miss red. thanks – Tiberiu Hajas Oct 19 '10 at 2:15
