If you are using the Windows built-in "Remote Desktop" application (mstsc.exe) then when you remotely connect in the remote computer will automatically "lock" so no-one can see the screen or what you're doing. They just get presented with the usual "Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to unlock this computer".

You can simply switch the power off (at the screen) whenever you are leaving the office.

I've seen this occur before and spent time trying to figure it out and later determined it was something so simple, I wanted to add an answer for you just in case this is what's causing you this very similar sounding problem. It seems that old printers still defined on Windows machine (old networked printers perhaps) can cause the Remote Desktop Connection ...

Although this isn't a solution to the root cause of the issue (the poor performance) it might help a little in dealing with it: you might want to go to System → Advanced system settings → Performance frame, Settings button, then select "Adjust for best performance". This should stop Windows from trying to animate when you minimize a window, for ...

Nirsoft Remote Desktop PassView for old versions or Nirsoft Network Password Recovery for newer versions of RDG files should help. Use the x64 version on 64 bit versions of Windows.

Please try to run mstsc.exe in Admin mode. (Go to the folder where it is installed, right click and Run as Administrator) Also, try finding out if it is getting contention with other programs. Close everything and try running mstsc only and see if the same behavior persists. This article might also be of help: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/...

Take a look at You notice that the check box "Deny this user permissions to logon to a Remote Desktop Session Host Server" and follow the instructions to set the Group Policy accordingly to restrict Remote Desktop access. This applies to Windows Server 2012 R2 even though the article doesn't list it but you can easily test to confirm all works as expected ...

You could use something like 7-zip to make a split archive, say 4 x 1GB files, then these can be copied across individually and the original file extracted at the other end.

In the remote session, press Shift+Control and hold. Release the Shift key. Release the Control key. To duplicate problem, reverse the order of the key releases. A Microsoft RDP bug.

While theoretically possible, the hardware bottleneck will now be replaced by a new bottleneck: Networking. The reduced video quality that you've seen is purposefully there to reduce need for bandwidth and lower latency, and trying to play a game like this will not really be playable. I tested this with Toribash quite some time ago, just to see if it was ...

The accepted solution might be correct in some cases, however the ClientID can be located in other locations in the Registry. It depends on whether or not you are using a 64-bits OS. On 64-bits OS you need to include \Wow6432\. Sometimes the registry location ends with a version (for example \Version9), but I have seen cases where it doesn't. Possible ...

Unfortunately no. It can only use as big of a resolution as what the Mac is set to use for itself. If you had the Mac hooked up to an external monitor with a bigger resolution then you could remote to it using that resolution.

You have the Remote Desktop client. That comes with all editions of Windows that I'm aware of. Therefore, you can remotely log into to other machines that support it. Your computer does not, however, have the server part of Remote Desktop, so you can't remote into your machine from anywhere else. The server part only comes with Pro and Enterprise editions of ...

After the last W10P patch-tuesday I couldn't login to my RDP. When home again checked if it had to do with the router but no, locally it didn't work either. Then checked the settings. RDP was allowed as usual. I turned it off (saved) and on again. It seems to work for now. When trying to login, I tried to reboot remotely. This wasn't allowed because the pc "...

There is no problem to vpn to use a site-to-site vpn. HOWEVER, when you setup a site-to-site you allow certain IP's from your local traffic (office 1) to be allowed to the remote site (office 2) When you vpn into the office (office 1) from home, you get a DIFFERENT IP RANGE, so the site-to-site vpn won't allow you through to the remote RDP (office 2) ...

Use the command quser to show sessions. Then you will see something like ID 1 or 2 or 4. Then type Logoff 4 to log off that session. You can also type query session or qwinsta (both are the same thing) Show's who's on and what port is listening etc.

So I used the microsoft support and recovery assistant for Outlook 365 and it suggested to disable IpV6 on the (wireless) network adapter...this seemed to have fixed the problem.

THE OBVIOUS-NOT-OBVIOUS FIX: Install latest drivers and patches from Windows Update This was a company computer, and we only have access to very specific updates on-network, probably distributed via Active Directory by WSUS. This laptop usually functions like a desktop, hooked up to dual monitors, so I never move it, but I took it home with me and connected ...

Simpler - just don't maximize the Remote Desktop Connection Manager window. I just resize the RDCMan window to "almost" maximum size, then hit Full Screen in the RemoteDesktop connection (right click-> Full Screen). Otherwise, it seems Windows 10 keeps a bottom bar reserved for the taskbar & doesn't allow the remote desktop to go "all the way" ...

There's no equivalent to Microsoft RDP Gateway service on Linux, but there are ways to simplify connecting to multiple RDP servers through a single external IP which should suit your needs. The best solution on Linux I've found to date is Guacamole; not the green dip that goes great with tortilla chips and a tequila, but the clientless html5 RDP Gateway. ...

Well, by default redirected printer will use Microsoft Easy Printer driver, but this driver doesn't work for all the printers from all OEMs. So in some situation, we need to install the OEM driver on the remote server to help to printer redirection process.

Windows 10 made some changes to the way the biometric authentication, including fingerprint, works in order to improve security. Because of this, RDP with fingerprint login is not currently supported in Windows 10. But looks like face authentication works in current version.

Windows Client version only supports one session at the same time. Consider to change the Windows 7 to a Windows Server, which will support two active sessions.

It is hard to see the exact cause, by you can try: 1. Disable all redirect resource from MSTSC.exe before the connection. 2. Try to restart the remote desktop service remotely if you can RD to another EC2 instance. 3. Consider to apply all available updates on the server to upgrade the RDS conponents to the latest version. 4. Check event log on the server, ...

As a workaround, you can try to manually run following command to launch a shadow session: Mstsc shadow:2 /v:vlcsrrr-74 /control /noConsentPrompt usually session 2 is the first RDP-TCP session on a client, you can run qwinsta on vlcsrrr-74 for double confirm.

Maybe some 3rd party firewall has blocked 3389 even 3389 is listening. Try to telnet 3389, or change the RDP port 3389 (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber)?

I would check a few things. Go thru device manager and update the drivers, just point it at existing Hamachi folder. Make sure the logmein tunnel service is running. I would also look to see if any routes were added to your system when it was installed. These may or may not be correct. This article here shows you how to work with windows route tables ...

Can't add comment to top answer, but I have modified the suggested script that Tahir linked to his blog in the top answer to make it cleaner and easier to use. The following works by suspending the local script when full screen RDP is active instead of trying to kill and restart the separate script version everytime focus is moved. This is lighter, and ...

This problem seems to be resolved when using the Windows 10 RDP client. It could be mitigated sometimes in Windows 7 client by pressing ctrl+shift / ctrl+alt (sometimes with arrow keys to select/de-select, which usually triggers the issue). Seemed to be a combination of VPN + RDP on Win 7 triggering the issue as it never happened on LAN.

Possible? Yes. Usable? Maybe, it would all depend on the internet connection of your home and where you're at. A major difference between LANs and WANs is that WANs are shared resources, and LANs are dedicated to the owner of the network, normally. You can try it, but it's all going to boil down to two things: 1) How good the internet connections are ...

Yes it is possible to setup wake on wan, however if you are travelling, I'd doubt that you will have access to stable & fast connection to remote back to your PC @ home for network gaming.
