RDP Settings for Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server 2008 R2

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When you use the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client software to connect to a remote computer, a Remote Desktop Protocol (.rdp) file is created on the client computer. By default, a file named default.rdp is created in your My Documents folder the first time you use RDC to connect to a remote computer.

You can save .rdp files with different settings if you connect to multiple remote computers.

You can configure many of the connection settings by using Options in RDC. Some settings can only be configured by editing the .rdp file in a text editor, such as Notepad.
