Hide remote desktop server name menu

I want to be able to hide the thing that displays the ip address or server name that you are on in a terminal session or remoote desktop session.  So if you know what I can do to not display that little thing at the top of the screen, that would be great.

Hi. Check out this page: http://hem.fyristorg.com/vera/IT/TS_security.htm. There, you'll find plenty of information on Securing TS connections.


If you mean the yellow tab at the top, simply click on the pin on left side of bar. To totally disable, go to Remote Desktop > Options >Display tab and UNCHECK "Display the connection bar when in full screen mode"

I know how to disable it or hide it.  I should have explained myself better.  I have many users that use terminal services via tsweb/remote desktop connection, and I need to hide that little connection bar from them.  I don't want them to know what server they are logging into.  I have a script that randomly selects 1 of 4 servers and what's happening is that they are closing the page and reopening it until they get a server that they are familliar with.  That way, it kills one or more of the servers.  

How can I disable it for all of my terminal services users?

by the way, I didn't find anything of use in that first link.
I had the same problem, and there's no solutio.n
What I eventually did was writing in VB a FrontEnd for Remote Desktop where the user can only select resolution and when they click Connect it executes mstsc.exe with some parameters.
Works great.

Thanks for the responses.  I gave you both credit because you both gave me answers to my problem.
Thanks for the credit.

I did look up GPO's for this last night, no luck. A possilble solution is Remote Desktop Web Connection, with the TSWEB full screen option disabled. Of course, this won't deter users of remote desktop.

Good luck.
