remote desktop - multiple logins

Is there a way to store multiple logins and passwords for remote desktop? I am able to store multiple remote IPs/computer names, but it stores the same login and password for each of those remote computer names.

I am able to save a separate file in my mydocuments folder and open it each time I want to be able to connect to that computer, but I was wondering if there was an easier way to select different computers than having to browse my folder directory for a .rdp file.


thanks!

I believe that saving the .rdp file is the only way.  But what is hard about having a folder with only .rdp files?

The "Remember Password" feature is only able to remember one set of credentials for the screen it is used on. RDP files are the standard for remembering different settings for different Remote Desktop connections such as username, password, screen resolution etc . I have a folder with a dozen shortcuts to these RDP files and I make it a popup menu on my task bar in WinXP. Much easier!!

You might also want to look at some of the password storage programs available commercially if the RDPs are really not working for you. Make sure you go for a reputable one however as they are a common hiding place for spyware / malware if you get a dodgy one.
