Remote Desktop Shortcuts

This post is going to highlight a "DUH JIM!" moment I had this morning. I have a number of different client computers and servers that I remote into in order to get some work done. For a while now I have had a shortcut on my desktop to launch the Remote Desktop Connection application. All of the machines I connect to are conveniently listed in drop down for me to select from. Today in my "DUH JIM!" moment I figured out that I could add the URL for the computer I'm connecting to after the call to the Remote Desktop Connection program. Here is what I mean:

C:\Windows\System32\mstsc.exe /v:[url here]

You can optionally add window size parameters like /h:800 /w:600 in order to control the size of the remote desktop window.

I now have shortcuts on my desktop that take me directly to the machines that I want to connect to. May seem kind of simple but it did qualify for the "DUH JIM!" moment today. :-)

Have a day.
