I am using a Virtual Desktop Manager to run 4 desktops that I use. I am wondering if it is possible to RDP into a different desktop than the one that is currently being viewed on the local PC? So I am viewing a desktop that is currently hidden on the PC. I am running Windows 7 Home premium.

If you are asking if it's possible to remote desktop from PC A to B and then remote desktop into C from B, the answer is yes, you can make remote desktop chains from computer to computer as much as you like, provided that you don't create a loop.

Sorry I did not mean desktop computers. I meant each computer has 4 desktops that I can switch through. Each desktop can have different applications on it. – user1632018 Aug 13 '13 at 22:00
Is there some reason that you can't switch desktops the way you normally do after remotting in? – David Aug 16 '13 at 16:09

after remote desktop, open task manager, hit users, select the sessions and hit "connect to"
