Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there any (implicit) difference of access right depending on whether

  1. I directly logon to a Win 7 system
  2. or whether I do this via a remote desktop connection

as the same user.

I wonder, because I cannot delete some files, message is that I "require permission from xyz to make changes to this folder". But this exactly the user I am using for the remote desktop connection.

The Win 7 system is not part of a domain, I use "computer\xyz" for login.

Which files are you trying to delete? –  surfasb Jul 29 '11 at 0:01

There is no difference. Windows 7 does not have "remote" and "console" sessions as such, in laymens terms, it only has remote sessions, and then it attaches that remote session to your local keyboard/monitor/mouse.

There is definitely some differences. For example try changing graphics properties from an RPD session... –  Kyle Jul 28 '11 at 22:27

@Kyle - this is because of the driver that is loaded for display redirection. The actual session (that sits below the display driver) is the same. –  Mark Henderson Jul 28 '11 at 22:44
    
@kyle: That has nothing to do with ACLs or the SRM, which would grant you those permissions. . . –  surfasb Jul 29 '11 at 0:01
    
@Farseeker: If you are speaking about "console" you are talking about the admin mode of mstsc? 'mstsc /admin' –  Robert Jul 29 '11 at 11:25
