Is it possible to change the position of the Remote Desktop Connection client bar? It's really annoying that I can only seem to drag it in the top area of the window.

Can I move the bar so it appears on the right-hand side of the window?

It is now possible to remove it all together. In the Remote Desktop Connection windows, under the Display tab, uncheck the "Display the connection bar when I use the full screen."

If you can't see the bar - You can get out of Remote desktop ..and go back to local computer using Ctrl + Alt + Break

But you can have it minimise if you click the pin icon, to see it again bring your mouse up to the top of the screen.

Here is a list of all the options you have for a remote desktop connection, they all seem to focus on visual output coming from the remote machine, and security nothing about the client bar.

Unfortunately not. For info, there is a complete list of the available customisations here:

As microsoft's links have a habit of going dead, the page title is:
