Terminal Services User Configuration

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The properties of a user account can be configured to provide a Terminal Services-specific profile and home folder. This profile and home folder will only be used when a user establishes a remote session with a terminal server. A separate profile for Terminal Services sessions should be assigned to a user because many of the common options that are stored in profiles, such as screen savers and animated menu affects, are not desirable when using Terminal Services.
