However, when copying files, the clipboard doesn't actually contain the files themselves, it only has a list of file paths, with special ...

I don't think that is possible in Windows. The recommended way to run a remote console in Windows is PowerShell remoting, and when creating a remote session you always have to provide credentials. It would be actually very bad if an admin could create a user session without knowing the user's password. Each user has secrets which should not be accessible ...

Then save the file. When you open it the error message has gone. You can re-enter the existing domain, user and password then save over the ...

You need to get them to set up a permanent password for unattended access, then tell you it. This is, of course, a huge security hole for them, so they need to trust you. It gives you total access to their machine at any time. I call this the Grandparental Control password ;-) It is sensible, if not hugely secure, to use the same password as the ...
