    Is there a different user "profile" used when I log in through Remote
    Desktop COnnection?

    I get the right Icons, but the actual desktop layout for the user's
    local login is ignored.

    Is there a reg key I could copy from the local user's login to his
    remote login?

    (win2003, workgroup, no domains or A/D, just a straight user/pass
    login)

  2. In the RDC, click options.
    Click 'Experience' tab.
    Under 'Choose your connection speed...', choose 'LAN (10 Mbps or higher)'

    Umm.... that is set, but that doesn't seem to be the issue. I get all
    features, it's just that the Desktop Layout is thrashed (icons all
    sorted to order by name instead of arranged the way the user has them
    with a local login).

    Dave:

    Tried that, same results. I can even customize the desktop layout in
    the remote session and it sticks... but it's not the same desktop I
    get when I am physically at the server logging in.

    Any idea where it's storing the desktop config for both logins ? I'd
    settle for being able to manually copy the desktop from the local
    login to whatever it is using for the remote login if I knew where
    they were both stored.

    Would have thought the console session would do it. I actually like the
    "feetchur" because occasionally I remote into my workstation from a machine
    or laptop with a lesser resolution capability and it doesn't destroy my
    desktop arrangement back at console.

    I don't have an issue with it... I'd just like to be able to clone my
    local desktop to the remote.

    Do you know where they store the local settings for the desktop icon
    arrangement? That would be a start to hunting down the proper key.

    Thanks,
