Remote desktop connection missing Programs tab RRS feed

  • Question

  • Remote desktop connection missing Programs tab

    This makes it sort of useless for how we utilize it. Is there any other way to launch a program from rdp? Is there an older version of mstsc I can backrev to? Why did it go away? Please put it back.

  • Hi,

    Yes, we found that the programs tab has been removed under Windows 10 remote desktop connection. As a workaround, here is a group policy for same use.

    Policy path: 

    Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Remote Session Environment

    Scope: 

    Machine

    Supported on: 

    At least Windows Server 2003

  • I was found one not so good solution but it work. Make folder with name mstscWin81 or something else and copy two files from windows 8.1(c:\windows\system32\) to created folder on your windows 10 desktop:

    mstsc.exe

    mstscax.dll

    Inside mstscWin81 folder create subfolder with name en-US and copy inside that folder files with name:

    mstsc.exe.mui

    mstscax.dll.mui

    from "c:\windows\system32\en-US"

    Now you can start mstsc.exe from mstscWin81 folder with programs tab in application on windows 10 system.

  • Unfortunately, your workaround does not solve my issue.  I automatically start two different RDPs on separate monitors for different functions.  How can I specify different programs and multiple RDPs at startup?  I have several workstations operating in this mode.
