    Hi ThomasAlbertini-2349,

    Using Powershell, you can get a list of remote desktop sessions using the commands QWinsta and Query.

    List Remote Desktop Sessions using QWinsta:
    QWinsta /server:[Server name or IP]

    Replace the parameter [Server name or IP] with the name or IP address of the remote machine.
    QWinsta /server:210.168.1.54

    Get Remote Desktop Sessions using Query:
    Query user /server:[Server name or IP]

    Replace the parameter [Server name or IP] with the name or IP address of the remote computer.
    Query user /server:210.168.1.54

    You can use the below powershell command to get clear output.
    (Query user /server:210.168.1.54) -replace 's{2,}', ',' | ConvertFrom-Csv

    The following command exports the output to CSV file.
    (Query user /server:210.168.1.54) -replace 's{2,}', ',' | ConvertFrom-Csv |
    Export-CSV "C:\RDPSessions.csv" -NoTypeInformation -Encoding UTF8
