Managing Remote Desktop Sessions

Remote Desktop ManagerAs anyone who uses Remote Desktop a lot will by now know all too well, managing all those connections can be a real pain, especially if you need to make a config change that would normally require you to edit each connection manually.

Thankfully Microsoft has realised how much of a nightmare is (and how much the existing MMC plugin sucks badly), and they have provided us with a *much* better solution that is really easy to use and allows for logical grouping of servers into groups (and subgroups).

Once setup you can set default RDP preferences at an application, group or server level which means you can change an option in one place and have it apply to all your connections.

You can find out a bit more about the tool over on the MSExchangeTeam blog or you can jump right in and get the download from Microsoft here.
