Windows 2003 RDC Multiple Users Question.

Dearest Experts,

I am very partial to using RDC on Windows Server 2003. However, when I login to the server remotly I do not see the 'physical' desktop that I left when I was in the office. All the applications remain open when I login remotlely, I just can't see what is open, and do not have the option to close them. In short I am being signed in using a new administrators account. Is there any way to avoid this? For example, I need to close Filemaker Pro which is constantly running on the server.

I hope this makes some sense.

Regards,


Peter
