I have a small office with 4 or 5 users that use remote desktop to work from home. I want to see what they are doing when they are logged in remotely. Watch the screen as they work so we can go over it together as I see what they are seeing. Is this possible with RDP. By default the screen on the office pc (host) shows the lock screen.

We are not running a server so each pc is windows 10 with rdp setup accessed via vpn.

    Shadow Group Policy can be set either at the computer or user level and is located under Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Servers\Remote Desktop Session Host\Connections\Set rules for remote control of Remote Desktop Services user sessions.
