# Remote Desktop Console Session - Desktop Icon

Using a Windows 7 32-bit client I am trying to create a desktop icon which will allow me to login to a console session of Windows Server 2003.

When I open RDP via "mstsc /admin" and then login to the server it will connect to the console. However, if I open "mstsc /admin" and then try to save that profile to my desktop, it doesn't connect as the console session.

Using the same exact method with a Server 2008 RDP profile, I have no problems.

Simple.

Create the profile as you had before.

mstsc /admin c:\path\to\the\profile.rdp


in it.

That shortcut should then work for you.

That will do the job, thanks man. –  JEP Mar 7 '11 at 19:31

To add on, you can also create the shortcut mstsc /admin /v:server.ip
