Going by RDP to Windows Server 2008 R2, after "preparing your desktop" nothing happens. Just a blue screen (desktop solid color) and nothing else. No start menu, no icons. If I'll CTRL+ALT+END I'm able to open EXPLORER.EXE, and the desktop is back to normal, else, I'm just stuck with the blue screen. Does someone knows anything about this issue?

  • Is RDP enabled in the server? – user772515 Feb 7 '18 at 18:48
  • Of course. I just told you I'm going by RDP on server, but I have to manually open the explorer.exe from task manager in order to see my desktop – catalin Feb 7 '18 at 18:49
  • It sounds like there's a problem with your profile on the server. Have you contacted your server administrator? – Jeff Zeitlin Feb 7 '18 at 18:53
  • I'm the server admin, and I don't know what to do to solve it. And I also removed the profile, but the problem persists. – catalin Feb 7 '18 at 18:53
  • Did you try to modify the RDP settings before connecting to the server? – Scorpion99 Feb 7 '18 at 20:05
