One of my common actions in Windows 7 was to RDP from home to work. My workflow was Pin "Remote Desktop Connection" to my start menu, and click on the only MRU connection (my work computer).
As it was the only machine I RDP'd to it was always there.
Is there anything similar in Windows 8 using the Start Menu, I know I "could" use the taskbar if I wanted, but I quite liked what I had. Or is there a better workflow I should be using now I'm on Windows 8?
By MRU I am referring to the "Recent" list as in this example (just found on google).
