Creating A UserID That Remote Desktop Can Use? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm getting tired of typing A-d-m-i-n-i-s-t-r-a-t-o-r every time I log on via Remote Desktop.

    Understood that I can create a .rdp to automate that part.

    But my preferred solution would be to create an "Admin" userid and somehow get it into the security group that's allowed to RemoteDesktop into the box.

    Is there any hope for this?   Maybe a .exe that presents a fuller user management dialog?

    Accessing the server desktop for any reason (including creating accounts) is unsupported.  Having said that, you can add a user to the Administrators group.  However, any user in that group will not be able to access the server through Remote Access.
