When I connect to a remote host via RDP, my local folders and drives are available on the RDP session under the \\tsclient connection, so that, if I for instance want to access a file that resides on my desktop I need to go under \\tsclient, C:, users, myusername, and Desktop which takes an 5 additional steps.

Question: is it possible to have my desktop set as the remote host's desktop?

There could be something out there, but I really don't think so. You could create a shortcut to your desktop and put it in the root of \tsclient to shorten the process.

No, but you can create shortcuts on the remote desktop to the folders and files on your host desktop.
